VALLELY GRABS LEAD OF AJGA FUTURELINKS JUNIOR AT WHISTLER
White and Park tie for lead in Girls Division

WHISTLER, B.C.--Ryan Vallely of Lethbridge, Alberta, tore through the weather to card a 3-under-par 68 in the first round of the AJGA FutureLinks Junior at Whistler. In the Girls Division, Adrienne White of Red Deer, Alberta and Eom Ji Park of Vancouver, B.C., lead the field with a 6-over-par 77.

The AJGA FutureLinks Junior at Whistler features 84 of the top junior golfers, ages 13-18, representing 10 states and four Canadian provinces. Thirty-three juniors from Canada and three honorable mention Polo Golf Junior All-Americans are included in the field.

Vallely, White and Park took first round leads in their respective divisions despite continuous rains and cold winds with temperatures near 50° F (10° C).

Vallely is playing in his first AJGA tournament and is ranked fourth in Bank of Montreal Order of Merit.

"I am happy to finally be playing in an AJGA event," the 18-year-old said. "If I am able win, it is just an added bonus."

Vallely, a member of the Canadian Junior Team, had nines of 32-36 en route to his first-round lead. His round included six birdies, nine pars and three bogeys.

"I played a really solid round after getting off to a great start," Vallely said. "I putted phenomenal today, definitely the best I have putted in a long time.

"This course is in wonderful shape and the greens were awesome, they were probably running a little slower because of all the rain, but it was great."

Kyle Patterson of Mukilteo, Wash., is one-stroke behind Vallely at 2-under-par 69. Brandon Fry of Victoria, B.C., and Colin Gilliham of Mission, B.C., are tied at 1-under-par 70 for third place. Tied for fourth place is Mike Zefkeles of Medina, Wash., and Zack Miller of San Rafael, Calif., at even-par 71.

In the Girls Division, White carded nines of 38-39 in her first AJGA tournament.

"I went out and didn't expect much and tried to play my best," the 17-year-old said. "I like that you don't have to walk past the clubhouse when you make the turn because it's easier to carry your momentum."

White, who qualified for this tournament by winning the FutureLinks Western Championship, had one birdie for her round.

"My mental edge kept me on top of this round," White said. "I was able to not let the rains bother me, but tomorrow I need to work on closing out the round. I ended with bogeys on Nos. 16 and 17."

Park tallied nines of 35-42 for her first round total 77.

"On the front nine, I played well," Park said. "On the back, I lost my concentration because of the weather."

Park, who had two birdies on the day, struggled with her driver.

"I really couldn't hit well today," Park said. "I hit two out of bounds and then had two three putts late in the round which can't happen the rest of the tournament.

"I need to hit more fairways and greens the rest of the week."

Kristen Svicarovich of Hillsboro, Ore. is in third place with a 7-over-par 78.

Second-round action starts Wednesday with tee times at 7:00-11:03 a.m. For more information please contact AJGA headquarters at (604) 905-5019.
