AJGA SHELL WORLD GOLF VILLAGE JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Slammer & Squire at World Golf Village
St. Augustine, Florida
July 23-26, 2001

KIM TAKES EARLY LEAD IN BOYS DIVISION
Andersen leads Girls Division by one shot

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla.- Hochul Kim of Clearwater, Fla., fired a 3-under-par 69 to take a one-shot lead over three players after the first round of the AJGA Shell World Golf Village Junior Championship held at The Slammer & The Squire. Brandy Andersen of Orlando, Fla., shot a 2-over-par 74 to grab the lead in the Girls Division.

The Shell World Golf Village Junior Championship, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 84 juniors, ages 13-18, from 12 states. Included in the field are 46 players from Florida.

Kim carded nines of 36-33-69 for his round. He made the turn at even-par, but recorded back-to-back birdies on Nos. 13 and 14 and also carded a birdie on the difficult finishing hole, the 425-yard, par-4 18th.

"I just played a very solid round," Kim said. "On the front nine, I missed some birdie putts, but on the back nine, I finally started to roll them in."

Kim had 13 pars, four birdies and one bogey on his round. The 17-year-old's only bogey of the day came on the par-5 4th hole after he hit his ball into the water hazard.

"I hit my drives very well, with the exception of No. 4," Kim added. "I just tried to make a lot of pars today, and fortunately, I was able to do that."

Kim, who shot an 8-under-par 64 in the final round to finish second in the AJGA PING Myrtle Beach Junior Classic earlier in the summer, hopes to continue his strong play tomorrow.

"I hope I can play better tomorrow," Kim said. "It will be hard to do, because this is a tough course. When the fairways are wet and the wind blows like it did today, it is a very difficult course to score well on."

Kim leads Zack Miller (36-34) of San Rafael, Calif., Kyle Shirley (32-38) of Fountain Run, Ky., and Chris Kirk (34-36) of Woodstock, Ga., by one shot. The trio is tied for second at 2-under-par 70. Joe Green III (36-35) of Jacksonville, Fla., is in fifth at 1-under-par 71.

Brandy Andersen, who won Sunday's qualifier, took the early lead in the Girls Division with a 2-over-par 74. Andersen carded nines of 36-38.

"I didn't hit my driver as well as usual," Andersen said. "But I hit my putter and my irons decent, so that kind of saved my round."

Andersen was 1-over-par after a bogey on No. 6, but birdied Nos. 8 and 12 to get to 1-under-par. She bogeyed three of the last six holes, but was still happy with her round.

"I feel very good about the way I played, but know there is a lot of golf to be played," Andersen added. "I need to hit my driver and get up-and-down out of the sand better to have a chance the last two days."

Andersen leads Polo Golf Junior All-American Whitney Code of Tampa, Fla., and Jessica Castle of Plantation, Fla., by one shot. Code fired nines of 35-40-75 and had only 26 putts in her round, including 11 on the front nine. Castle recorded nines of 37-38-75.

The AJGA Shell World Golf Village Junior Championship continues Wednesday with tee times from 7:30-9:27 a.m. off Nos. 1 and 10 tees. For more information, contact AJGA tournament headquarters at (904) 940-8560.
