LANG RISES TO WIN LUCENT GIRLS JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP

Overcomes a four-shot deficit to win in back-to-back weeks

LAWRENCE, Kan.- Brittany Lang of McKinney, Texas, carded a 3-over-par 75 to capture the 10th annual Lucent Technologies Girls Junior Championship at Alvamar Country Club on Wednesday.


Brittany Lang of McKinney, Texas, also won last week at the Texace San Antonio Shootout.

The event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 86 players representing 22 states and Japan. Former champions of this event include Kellee Booth, Kelli Kamimura, Leigh Anne Hardin, Miriam Nagl and Aree and Naree Song-Wongluekiet.

Lang overcame a four-shot deficit to overtake Ina Kim of Encino, Calif., to score back-to-back wins after capturing the title at the AJGA Texace San Antonio Shootout last week. The honorable mention Polo Golf Junior All-American improved each of the three rounds to finish at 81-76-75--232. Staying out of the rough helped Lang remain a model of consistency.

"I hit a lot of fairways and greens which was my number one goal," Lang said. "This course is manageable when you do that."

Strong winds all week contributed to high scores as players fought to stay in the 70s. Added Lang, "My 75 sure felt like even-par today."

Lang and Kim were tied heading into No. 13, but Kim's double-bogey and Lang's birdie created a three-shot swing. Back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 14 and 15 by Lang created a one-shot margin between the two heading to No. 16. Kim's second shot fell short of the green and her putt from off the fringe ran 15 feet past the hole and two putts later Lang held a two-shot lead heading into No. 17.

"The 16th was the deciding hole," Kim said. "If I would have two-putted, I think I would have had a chance."

Lang went on to birdie the 500-yard par-5 17th hole to give her confidence heading into the last hole.

"I felt pretty confident after No. 17 but I kept telling myself to keep fighting even though there was one hole left," said the 15-year-old.

Lang's bogey on No. 18 was good enough to secure the first major in her AJGA career.
Kim's final-round 80 left her a shot off the lead at 233. Kelly Husted of Sarasota, Fla., finished in third place at 236. Ashley Rollins of Austin, Texas, finished five strokes back at 237 and Seiko Onoue of La Habra, Calif., wrapped up fifth place at 239.

Thirteen-year-old Morgan Pressel of Boca Raton, Fla., coming off her appearance at the U.S. Women's Open, carded a 79 for a three-day total of 244.
