WEST COAST JUNIORS DOMINATE THEIR FIELDS AT RTJ
Moore and Creamer Storm Into the Second-Round Under Par

MOBILE, Ala. - Despite two inclement weather delays, Paula Creamer and Jonathan Moore dominated their respective fields Saturday during the first round of the AJGA Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Junior Classic at the Magnolia Grove Golf Club.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Junior Classic, features a field of 169 juniors ages 13-18 representing 26 states and two countries. Held by the Magnolia Grove Golf Club on both the Falls and Crossing courses, this week's field includes 13 players from the state of Alabama and 10 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

The current leader for the Boys Division, Moore of Portland, Ore., did not allow the 30-minute fog delay nor the one hour and 15-minute rain delay affect his mental or physical game. The 16-year-old sank a birdie right out of the gate from the second delay on No. 5, which carried him through the remaining 13 holes.

"The birdies gave me a lot of greens to play with and allowed me to take some chances with my putting," Moore said.

In addition to his strong performance, Moore carded additional birdies on Nos. 3, 7 and 9, earning him a 4-under-par total for the front nine, giving him a 68 and two-shot lead over his closest competitors for the day.

Moore, who captured the crown at the AJGA Quail Ranch Junior Classic in June and was a member of the victorious 2001 West Canon Cup Team, is striving to add a second 2001 AJGA title to his resume this weekend. In order to claim the title, the strategy for the current sophomore is to continue to hit well, which will allow him to solely focus on the greens.

"I am pleased with my performance today," Moore said. "I am going to keep practicing my putting to give me a better feel for the greens."

Trailing behind Moore only two strokes off the lead at 2-under-par 70 are Daniel McGurk of The Woodlands, Texas, Jeff Bell of Plano, Texas, and Casey Wittenberg of Memphis, Tenn., while Chris Rogers of Franklin, Tenn., and James Vargas of Miami, Fla., fired 1-under-par 71.
In the Girls Division, Creamer of Pleasanton, Calif., also a member of the 2001 West Canon Cup Team, began her quest for her fourth AJGA title of the summer with an opening round 69, good for a two-shot lead.

Creamer got off to a strong start with a birdie on No. 1, after sticking her second-shot with a 5-iron from 160 yards out to within a foot of the hole. The 15-year-old followed that up with birdies on Nos. 5 and 9 to head to the backside at 3-under-par.

"I thought I played pretty well," Creamer said. "I just tried to stay focused on the ball and on my grips with the conditions being wet."

Creamer made it to the No. 12 tee box before the rain delay set in, taking away some of the momentum she had acquired on the front nine.

"It's tough to go back out and get back into the game both mentally and physically," Creamer said. "I just took a lot of practice swings and focused on golf."

Creamer, who has won this summer at the AJGA St. Regis Aspen Junior Classic, AJGA Compaq Junior Championship at Trophy Lake and most recently at the AJGA Buick Junior Open, knows she still has a lot of work in front of her to claim title number four.

"I just need to play solid golf," Creamer said. "There are a lot of good players out here and there is still a lot of golf left."

Joining Creamer atop the leaderboard of the Girls Division are Jackie Beers of Midlothian, Va., and Nicole Hage of Coral Springs, Fla., at 1-under-par 71, and Erin Faulkner of Bowling Green, Ky., Irene Cho of La Habra, Calif., and Taylor Leon of Dallas, all finishing at even-par 72.

Second-round action begins Sunday with tee times running from 7- 11:48 a.m. off No.1 tee on the Falls Course for the Boys Division and the Girls Division second-round action is from 7- 8:39 a.m. off No.1 and No.10 tees on the Crossings Course.
