WONG, CHUNG SURVIVE WIND TO TAKE LEAD AT MIZUNO JUNIOR AT CHATEAU ELAN
Tight Boys Division sure to impress on Sunday

BRASELTON, Ga. — David Yujin Chung of Fayetteville, N.C., fired the day's only under-par round amid windy conditions with a 1-under-par 70 to rise atop the leaderboard at the Mizuno Junior at Chateau Elan. In the Girls Division, Kristina Wong of Vestal, N.Y., carded a 1-over-par 72 to take the Girls Division lead heading into the final round.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Mizuno Junior at Chateau Elan is a 54-hole stroke play event featuring 93 boys and 42 girls — ages 12-18 — from 21 states and Canada. The 13th annual event is being staged on the par-71, 7,071-yard Chateau Course (Girls Division played at 6,069 yards) at Chateau Elan Resort. Past champions of the event and current PGA and LPGA players include Charles Howell III, Ryuji Imada, Beth Bauer and Brittany Lincicome.

Starting on the back nine, Chung carded his lone bogey of the day on his second hole before birdies on holes 3 and 7 got him back under par for his round.

“I didn't get anything going early, but I stayed patient,” said Chung, who hit 15 of 18 greens in regulation. “I was happy with my ball-striking today. I hit the ball really well and didn't have to scramble for pars.”

Chung, a 2005 second-team Rolex Junior All-American, has a crowded leader board to contend with in order to capture his first AJGA victory. One stroke off the lead are Adam McDonald of Franklin, Ky., Brinson Paolini of Virginia Beach, Va., and Bud Cauley of Jacksonville, Fla., with a two-day total of 144. Tied for fifth at 145 are Drew Ernst of Seneca, S.C., and Gregor Slabe of Bradenton, Fla.

Jhared Hack of Heathrow, Fla., made a hole-in-one on the 194-yard 16th hole and is tied for 14th place.

In the Girls Division, Wong recovered from three early bogeys with a birdie on the par-5 ninth. A bogey-free back nine included a birdie on No. 17 and propelled Wong to a one-shot lead with a tournament total of 146.

“I've never been in this position,” said Wong, who is seeking her first AJGA victory. “With the windy conditions today, I just tried to play conservatively.”

First-round leader Vicky Hurst of Melbourne, Fla., shot a 76 and is tied for second with Brooke Pancake of Chattanooga, Tenn., who fired the low round of the day in the Girls Division with an even-par 71 to jump into contention.

The American Junior Golf Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf. The largest Association of its kind, the AJGA has a junior membership (boys and girls ages 12-18) of approximately 5,000 junior golfers from 50 states and 30 foreign countries.

Titleist, the AJGA's National Sponsor, has been the catalyst and driving force behind the Association's success since 1989. Rolex Watch USA, which enters its third decade of support, became the inaugural AJGA Premier Partner in 2004.
