AJGA GREATER HARTFORD JAYCEES JUNIOR CLASSIC
Wethersfield Country Club
Wethersfield, Conn.
August 20-23, 2001

JANANGELO GRABS HARTFORD TITLE FOR THIRD STRAIGHT YEAR
Amole wins first AJGA title with final-round 71

WETHERSFIELD, Conn.-Elizabeth Janangelo of West Hartford, Conn., fired a final-round 73 Thursday to win her third consecutive AJGA Greater Hartford Jaycees Junior Classic. Zack Amole of Denver, Pa., came from one shot back to win his first AJGA event at 2-under-par.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, was held at Wethersfield Country Club and featured 99 players representing 17 states, the District of Columbia and Canada.

The 17-year-old Janangelo jockeyed all day with second-round leader Kristen White of Doylestown, Pa., but finally created some breathing room for herself when she made par on No. 15 and White three-putted for bogey.

Janangelo headed to the 16th tee with an aggressive mindset and smashed her tee shot over the lake on the par 5. White followed suit with a successful attempt at carrying the lake. White was first to play and knocked her second shot to the green from under a tree and left herself a 10-foot eagle putt. Janangelo left herself a 25-foot eagle attempt. After Janangelo's putt raced six feet past the hole, White made her eagle putt and waited for Janangelo's birdie try. Janangelo sank her birdie and the two headed to the 17th hole tied for the championship.

"I made the putts that counted today," Janangelo said. "I knew the importance of winning this tournament in front of a home crowd and I came through in the clutch."

White was first to play on the 173-yard, par-3 17th hole. After her ball stayed in the rough just short of the green, Janangelo placed her ball in the middle of the green and took a one stroke lead to the 18th tee after White failed to convert her up-and-down. That was the only cushion Janangelo needed as she blasted her drive down the middle of the fairway and capped her performance with a 5-foot par putt on the 54th hole of the tournament and enjoyed the one-stroke victory.

"The local support for the tournament was great this week," Janangelo said. "I wanted to go out and win this week. I'm happy with the way I played."

This win is Janangelo's fourth AJGA title of the season. Her previous three wins came at the Polo Golf Junior Classic, Sand Barrens Junior Championship and McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship. She also played in the Thunderbird International Junior and the Rolex Tournament of Champions.

White carded a 76 in the final round to finish in second at 219 while Anna Grzebien of Saunderstown, R.I., shot a 75 to finish third at 225. Grzebien has played well recently with wins at the AJGA Marsh Junior at Bethpage State Park and the Lessing's AJGA Classic.

In the Boys Division, Amole used two birdies on the day to shoot even-par 71 and take home the championship. Amole needed to get up-and-down from the rough on No. 17 after hitting his 4-iron short and right of the green to take his lead to the 18th.

"I made some good saves today to keep me in it," Amole said. "I hit a lot of good putts that didn't fall, but I am very happy to have my first win."

Phillip Telliard of Riverside, Calif., fired a final-round 2-under 69 to finish in second place at even-par 213. Matt McLean of Miami, lit up the par-71 Wethersfield Country Club by shooting a tournament-low round 5-under 66 in the final round. McLean finished in third place at 1-over 214. Second-round leader Kellen Altman of Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Dennis Gosier of Gansevoort, N.Y., finished in a tie for fourth at 2-over 215.
