PAT MOORE WINS FIRST AJGA EVENT IN SUDDEN-DEATH PLAYOFF
Lani Elston shoots final-round 69 to win Girls Division

HENDERSON, Nev. - Pat Moore of Phoenix defeated Ryan Keeney of Redmond, Wash., in a sudden-death playoff to earn his first American Junior Golf Association victory at the AJGA Las Vegas Founders' Legacy Junior. In the Girls Division, Lani Elston of Spokane, Wash., fired a final-round 69 to capture her second AJGA title in one month.

The tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, was held at The Legacy Golf Club in Henderson, Nev. The 12th annual AJGA Las Vegas Founders' Legacy Junior hosted eighty-four of the nations top juniors, ages 13-18, representing 11 states and England. The 54-hole event also included ten juniors from Nevada and 11 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

After shooting a final-round 68, Moore was forced to wait for the last boys group to come in. When second-round co-leader Keeney finished up a round of 69, the two went to a playoff that only lasted one hole.

On the first playoff hole, Keeney hit his tee shot out of bounds and was then forced to take an unplayable lie on his provisional ball. After hitting out of the rough, Keeney conceded to Moore.

"This whole week I've been really relaxed," said Moore, who will attend the University of New Mexico in the fall. "I guess you could say that it has just been my week."

Moore, who trailed by a shot heading into the final day, put together scores of 34 on the front nine and back nine, picking up five birdies along the way to earn him a spot in the playoff.

"I played steady and didn't make any mistakes," said Moore who finished the tournament with a 209 total. "I hit my irons well and made all of my par putts. I came in not thinking about the fact that I was one shot back, but just trying to shoot as low a score as possible.

"It's a good feeling," said Moore of his first AJGA win. "These are the best players out there and this is by far the best tournament I've ever won."

Rounding out the top five places in the Boys Division were Clay Ogden of West Point, Utah, at 211, Jesse Mueller of Mesa, Ariz., at 212 and Drew Scott of Henderson, Nev., and Daniel Summerhays of Farmington, Utah, at 213

In the Girls Division, Elston recorded a final-round 35-34-69 to surpass the second round co-leaders.

Elston, who focused on improving on her short putts for the final round, did just that on her way to picking up her second AJGA victory of the summer.

"I made all of my short putts today," said Elston, who is heading to the University of Idaho in the fall. "I missed a lot of those putts the past two days, so I wanted to make those five footers today and I did that."

"I hit good putts on my first two holes and that got me feeling real confident for the rest of the round," said Elston, who finished with a tournament total of 213. "I just wanted to come in today and play the best that I could. As long as that happened, I would be comfortable with how I did."

Rounding out the top three places in the Girls Division were Lisa Ferrero of Lodi, Calif., at 215 and Young Pak of Cerritos, Calif., and Christine Fernandez of Henderson, Nev., at 216.
