TWO FIRST-TIMERS GRAB WINS AT FUTURELINKS JUNIOR AT WHISTLER
Vallely and Svicarovich grab first AJGA victories during rain-shortened 45-hole event

WHISTLER, B.C.--Ryan Vallely of Lethbridge, Alberta carded an even-par 35 to cruise to his first AJGA victory at the FutureLinks Junior at Whistler. Kristen Svicarovich of Hillsboro, Ore., fired an even-par 71 second round and an even-par 36 front nine in the final round to win the title in the Girls Division.

The AJGA FutureLinks Junior at Whistler featured 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, a member of the Canadian Junior Team and No. 4 ranked golfer in the Bank of Montreal Order of Merit, tallied one birdie and one bogey during his even-par 35 round.

"I didn't hit the ball well yesterday," the 18-year-old said. "The (18 hour rain delay) gave me an opportunity to call my coach and figure out how to win this tournament."

Vallely's coach couldn't do anything about the continuous down pours at the Whistler Golf Club, but that may have been what helped Vallely through the tournament.

"I don't have a problem playing in these kind of conditions," Vallely, who had tournament rounds of 68-71-35--174, said. "The rain made the greens run slower, but you were still getting a true roll which allowed me to be more aggressive on birdie putts."

Vallely, who has not yet signed with a university, is ecstatic about winning his first AJGA appearance.

"I felt good coming in and knew if my putts dropped I would be fine and winning my first and last AJGA event is awesome," Vallely said.

Dustin Frontis of Yakima, Wash., and Zack Miller of San Rafael, Calif., tied for second-place, four strokes back at 1-over-par 178. Ryan Keeney of Redmond, Wash., and Kyle Patterson of Mukilteo, Wash., tied for fourth at 2-over-par 179.

In the Girls Division, Svicarovich, who was playing in her first AJGA event, had rounds of 78-71-36-- 185 for her first victory.

"After my 71 round, I just wanted to stay mentally strong," the 16-year-old said. "I wanted to come out and hit fairways, greens and two-putt."

Svicarovich, who qualified for the AJGA FutureLinks Junior at Whistler through an impressive resume that included appearances in the US Girls Amateur and two years with the Junior Girls American Cup, parred all nine holes during the final round.

"It feels great to get a win like this," Svicarovich said. "I owe a lot to my golf coach and my parents.

"My Dad taught me to play and it makes me feel comfortable with him here."

Finishing in second-place of the Girls Division is Eom Ji Park of Vancouver, B.C., with tournament rounds of 77-78-35 for a three-day total of 190. Dannielle Renner of Coaldale, Alberta, tallied rounds of 80-77-41 for a 198 total, good for third place.
