AJGA OSSO JUNIOR AT OAK TREE
Oak Tree Country Club, East Course
Edmond, Okla.
June 25-28, 2001


BACA CLAIMS SECOND AJGA TITLE WITH WIN AT OAK TREE
Melton comes back from four down to win Girls Division

EDMOND, Okla. - Ryan Baca of Richmond, Texas, shot a final-round 7-over-par 77 to win the Boys Division of the AJGA OSSO Junior at Oak Tree by two shots. In the Girls Division, Nicole Melton of San Antonio, Texas, survived a windy back nine and a one-hole playoff with Cindy Shin of Coppell, Texas to claim the title.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Oak Tree Country Club's East Course, featured 144 players, ages 13-18, representing 21 states.

Baca entered the day with a one-shot lead over Norman, Okla., native Ryan Rainer before extending his lead with a birdie on the 415-yard par-4 third hole after knocking a wedge inside of 10-feet. The Baylor signee managed to maintain his narrow lead over the field the rest of the way and held on to garner his second career AJGA win, despite finishing with a pair of bogeys.

"I didn't know where I stood coming into No. 18, so I just played it like any other hole," the 18-year-old said. " I played a pretty solid tournament until the last round, but I'm happy with the win. I didn't think I had it down the stretch, but everyone else was struggling too and I held on."

Brian Edick of Valencia, Calif., fired a 72 to jump into second place with a 218. Pete Krsnich of Wichita, Kan., and Will Armstrong of Austin, Texas, tied for third with a three-day total of 219. Garrett of Houston, Texas, finished fifth with a 220 after shooting a final-round 79.

Melton carded a 5-over-par 75 to finish the tournament at 224 in the Girls Division and force a playoff with Shin, who came into the final round with a four-shot lead. Shin finished with a 79, but got up-and-down from the back of the green on No. 18 to save par and regain a share of the lead. In the one-hole playoff, Melton hit her second shot within six feet of the hole and made par while Shin was unable to convert her par putt to give Melton her second career AJGA victory.

"It's a nice win," Melton said. "I really wanted to win here because I'm so close to home and I had a lot of family here watching."

After bogeys on Nos. 6 and 7, Melton sunk a 5-foot putt for birdie on No.8 to close within one shot of the lead. After the turn, the Texas A & M signee survived a handful of bogeys and made par when it counted in the playoff to get the win.

"I tried to be aggressive as I could be with the wind," the 18-year-old said. "I didn't want to lose the tournament on the front, so I pretty much played for par and was able to survive."

Kelly Robb of Concord, Mass., finished a shot back in third at 74-75-76--225. Erin Tone of Gilbert, Ariz., finished fourth with a total of 73-77-80--230 and Ponca City, Okla., native Michaela Cavener rounded out the top five with a 76-81-74--231.
