TWO GIRLS FILL FINAL SPOTS FOR AJGA AVILA JUNIOR CLASSIC
Four players gather medalist honors in Boys Division

Tarpon Springs, Fla.-- Ten spots were filled for the AJGA Avila Junior Classic in the Pepsi Qualifier Series presented by ClubCorp held at the The Westin Innisbrook Resort, Island Course. Monique Gesualdi of St. Augustine, Fla., garnered medalist honors in the Girls Division with a 4-over-par 76. Jerad Harklau of Heath, Texas, Stephan Bobe of Pensacola, Fla., Jacob Davis of Deland, Fla., and Chris Erwin of Tampa, Fla., all fired 2-under-par 70s to tie for medalist honors in the Boys Division.

The Avila Junior Classic, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 84 players from 16 states, Bermuda and Japan. Forty-nine juniors from Florida and nine Polo Junior Golf All-Americans are included in the field.

Gesualdi will appear in her fourth AJGA tournament, by taking medalist honors with a 4-over-par 76. Gesualdi played a steady round making 14 pars and 4 bogeys.

"I am very happy to get into this tournament," Gesualdi said. "I had a difficult time putting, but I chipped very well and got up-and-down several times."

Gesualdi knows what she needs to improve heading into Tuesday's first-round.

"I have to improve my iron play," Gesualdi said. "I just need to hit more greens and give myself opportunities to make birdies."

Joining Gesualdi in the field will be Sookhee Baek of Bradenton, Fla. Baek shot a 6-over-par-78.

In the Boys Division, Harklau, Bobe, Davis and Erwin will all make their first AJGA tournament appearance.

Harklau had five birdies en route to his 34-36--70.

"I hit a lot of greens and made a lot of putts," Harklau said. "The key to playing well is making putts. Fortunately today, I made quite a few."

Bobe had nines of 34-36 for his round of 70. He had three birdies in his round.

"I got up-and-down quite a bit," Bobe said. "I need to hit more greens to do well in the tournament."

Davis also had five birdies in nines of 35-35--70.

"I had some good misses. When I missed shots, I avoided trouble," said Davis. "I need to strike the ball better this week."

Erwin had perhaps the most up-and-down round of the four. The 18-year-old went out in 31, but bogeyed his last four holes for a 70.

"I had seven birdies in the round, but ended on a downer," Erwin said. "I just need to finish my rounds better in the tournament."

Also qualifying in the Boys Division are Patrick Gibson of Thonotosassa, Fla., and Marco Morales of Coral Gables, Fla., with 1-under-par 71s and Hochul Kim of Tampa, Fla., and Tyler Rucarean of Gainesville, Fla., at 1-over-par 73.
