HITCHCOCK FIRES 69 TO MEDAL IN QUALIFIER
Ten others qualify for tournament

MOBILE, Ala. - Wes Hitchcock of Parkland, Fla., shot a 3-under-par 69, to gain medalist honors and earn one of 11 spots into the AJGA Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Junior Classic Thursday.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Junior Classic, features a field of 171 juniors ages 13-18 representing 26 states. Hosted by the Magnolia Grove Golf Club, this week's field includes 13 players from the state of Alabama and 12 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

Hitchcock got his round off to a steady start by parring his first five holes before sticking a 5-iron from 175-yards within 4-feet for an easy birdie putt on No. 9. Hitchcock then followed that up by draining a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 10 to get himself going.

"I had missed some birdie putts early on, so the shot on nine helped," said Hitchcock, who placed second at a Junior All-Star event held at the same Crossings Course in 1998. "Making the long putt on 10 was kind of like a freebie.

"I wasn't trying to expect anything," said Hitchcock of his mindset after the back-to-back birdies. "I was just trying to keep the ball in the fairway and hit long irons into the green. I hit the ball pretty solidly, but I didn't putt that well."

Hitchcock, who has played in two AJGA events already this summer, has a fairly simple strategy for success the rest of the week.

"The key is to try and keep the ball in play and hit fairways," said Hitchcock. "It's hard to hold the greens coming out of the rough."

Also qualifying for the tournament were Edward McGlasson of Orange, Calif., and Kyle Ellis of Senatobia, Miss., who both shot a 2-under-par 70, Ryan Holler of Morehead City, N.C., with a 71, Danny Dennis of Collierville, Tenn., with a 72. Rounding out the qualifiers were John Saari of Lilburn, Ga., Andrew Villarreal of Decatur, Ala., and James Song of Oxnard, Calif.,. Matthew Brown of Lynn Haven, Fla., Daniel McGurk of The Woodlands, Texas, and Tim Seo of Nashville, Tenn., also qualified via a sudden-death playoff.

First-round action begins on Saturday with tee times running from 7-11:48 a.m. off of the No. 1 tee.
