DUNCAN THREATENS TOURNAMENT RECORD AT PING MYRTLE BEACH
Cho leads trio by one shot in Girls Division

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.-Brian Duncan of Greenville, S.C., picked up where he left off yesterday with a 6-under-par 66 to grab a five-shot lead after the second round in the Boys Division of the AJGA PING Myrtle Beach Junior Classic. Mickey Cho leads the Girls Division at 1-over-par 145.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the Myrtlewood Golf Club, PineHills Course, features 123 players, ages 13-18, representing 21 states, Canada, England and Puerto Rico. Past champions include Beth Bauer (1995-96) and Charles Howell (1995).

Duncan followed up his first-round score of 7-under 65 with a 66 on nines of 35-31. Duncan birdied Nos. 1 and 3, but back-to-back bogeys dropped him back to even-par on his round. However, he proceeded to birdie six of eight holes starting on No. 8. He currently sits at 13-under-par after 36 holes, and is on pace to break or tie the 54-hole tournament record set last year by Chan Song Wonglukiet of Bradenton, Fla.

"I couldn't play a whole lot better," said the 18-year-old Duncan. "I'm hitting the ball as well as I ever have, and my putts are falling. A couple of months ago, the putts weren't falling."

Duncan attested that his round could've been better, but he missed three putts inside of eight feet. He hit only 5-of-14 fairways, but managed to hit 16-of-18 greens. In two days, Duncan has hit 32-of-36 greens in regulation.

"I've been hitting it close, and putting the ball in position to score," said Duncan, a Clemson University signee. "I was fortunate to recover after the bogeys on the front nine and I caught fire on the back."

Duncan leads Matthew Mills of London, England, and Jeff Overton of Evansville, Ind., by five shots. Mills, who has hit 33-of-36 greens in regulation, shot his second consecutive 4-under-par 68, and has only one bogey through the first two days. Overton turned in the low round of the day with a 65, and is tied for second with Mills at 8-under 136. Duncan Street of Bonita, Calif., and Tom Lefebvre of Camp Lejeune, N.C., are tied for fourth at 138.

In the Girls Division, Mickey Cho of Wesley Chapel, Fla., carded a 3-under-par 69 to grab a one-shot lead at 1-over-par 145. Cho, 18, used an eagle on the 360-yard, par four 12th hole, when she holed out a six-iron from 155 yards to highlight her day.

"I stayed pretty calm after that," said Cho. "I still had a lot of holes to play."

Cho, who shot a 76 yesterday, also had three birdies in her round to offset two bogeys.

"I missed a lot of short putts, but I am happy with my round," said Cho. "This has been my best opportunity to win, so I am going to have fun and try to play well as the leader."

Andrea Vander Lende of Longwood, Fla., Ali Kicklighter of Deland, Fla., and defending champion Ashley Hoagland of Palmetto, Fla., and are all tied at 2-over-par 146. Kicklighter and Vander Lende, who shared the first-round lead at 1-under, shot 75, while Hoagland fired a 1-under-par 71.

Action concludes Thursday at the Myrtlewood Golf Club, PineHills Course, with tee times starting at 7 a.m. off the first tee. For more information, contact AJGA tournament headquarters at (843) 449-5134.
