DUNCAN SHATTERS TOURNAMENT RECORD AT PING MYRTLE BEACH
Cho claims first AJGA victory with dramatic playoff putt

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.-Brian Duncan of Greenville, S.C., continued his red-hot play with a final-round 3-under-par 69 and cruised to a seven-shot victory at the AJGA Ping Myrtle Beach Junior Classic. In the Girls Division, Mickey Cho of Wesley Chapel, Fla., won on the first playoff hole, edging Andrea Vander Lende of Longwood, Fla., and Ali Kicklighter of Deland, Fla., to claim her first AJGA victory.

The 54-hole event was conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the Myrtlewood Golf Club, PineHills Course, and featured 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, a Clemson University signee, shot rounds of 65-66-69-200 to breeze to the victory. The 18-year-old used six birdies in the final-round and finished with 19 birdies in the three-day tournament to win his first AJGA event. Duncan's tournament total of 16-under-par 200 shattered the tournament record of 13-under par set last year by Chan Song Wonglukiet of Bradenton, Fla.

"It hasn't really hit me yet," Duncan said. "I'm very pleased to play the way I did this week and to get my first win like that."

Duncan began the day with a bogey on No. 2, before carding birdies on Nos. 3 and 5 to make the turn at 1-under-par. After another bogey on No. 11 dropped him to even-par on his round, he birdied four of the next five holes to move to 4-under-par for the day.

"I still struggled with my driver today," Duncan said. "I hit only 5-of-14 fairways again, but my short game was good today, and that really picked me up on the back nine."

Duncan's red-hot play began a month ago when he won the South Carolina State Title on the same PineHills Course. Two weeks ago, he placed second at the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Junior at Furman, and last week, he reached the semifinals of the South Carolina Men's Match Play Tournament.

"I'm playing very well lately," Duncan commented. "Hopefully I can keep it going the rest of the summer and then next fall."

Hochul Kim of Clearwater, Fla., was second at 9-under-par 207 (75-68-64). Kim tied a tournament-record with a 64 today that included six birdies and an eagle. Kevin Kisner of Aiken, S.C., was third at 7-under-par 209 on rounds of 70-72-67. Jeff Overton of Evansville, Ind., Brett Bergeron of Laplace, La., and Tom Lefebvre of Camp Lejeune, N.C., all shot 6-under-par 210 to tie for fourth place.

In the Girls Division, Cho sank a 40-foot putt from the fringe on the first hole of the sudden-death playoff to garner her first AJGA victory.

"I just went for it," said an elated Cho about the winning putt. "I wasn't going to lag it up there, because Ali (Kicklighter) was close. I wanted it to go in, and fortunately, it hit the stick and went in.

"It feels great," said Cho about her first win. "I thought that I had lost in regulation, because they (Vander Lende and Kicklighter) had made so many birdies. I was happy to get another chance. I didn't expect to win."

The 18-year-old Cho sat five shots off the lead after the first round, but responded with a second-round 3-under-par 69 to lead heading into the final-round.

"The scores were so close after the first round, I was just hoping to get a top five finish," added Cho. "I knew after the second round that I had a chance to win."

Cho concluded the tournament with rounds of 76-69-75.

Kicklighter and Vander Lende tied for second with identical rounds of 71-75-74.
