AJGA ROBERT TRENT JONES GOLF TRAIL JUNIOR CLASSIC
Magnolia Grove Golf Club, Falls and Crossings Course
Mobile, Alabama
August 31 - September 3, 2001

MOORE GOES WIRE-TO-WIRE TO TAKE TITLE
Jackie Beers wins third AJGA title in Sudden-Death Playoff

MOBILE, Ala. - It took a one hour weather delay, but Jonathan Moore of Portland, Ore., finally finished what he started and claimed the Boys Division title at the AJGA Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Junior Classic with an 8-under-par 68-71-69--208 tournament record. In the Girls Division, Jackie Beers Midlothian, Va., won on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff with a 4-under-par 71-71-70--212 tournament total.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Junior Classic, featured a field of 171 juniors ages 13-18 representing 26 states and two countries. Held by the Magnolia Grove Golf Club on both the Falls and Crossing courses, the field included 13 players from the state of Alabama and 10 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

Moore's victory eclipsed Ty Tryon's previous year's tournament total low-round record of 210 by two strokes. This win was a true measuring stick of his game, Moore said.

"This is really, really special," he said. "Just to know that the hard work is paying off makes it worth it. This tournament showed me that. That makes me feel good."

Moore was pacing down the 54th and final hole of the tournament when the weather horns blew. The two leader groups remaining on the course were forced to pack it in for more than an hour before completing their rounds.

"I had the emotions going, that it was coming to an end, and the sirens went off," Moore said. "I ate a hamburger and tried not to stress. I just turned the focus back on when we went back out."

Moore did just that. He birdied the par-5 18th to finish four strokes ahead of Casey Whittenberg of Memphis, Tenn. James Vargas of Miami, Fla., finished third at 214. Jeff Bell of Plano, Texas, finished eight shots back at 216. Tied for fifth were Benjamin Spitz of Norwell, Mass., and Shane Sigsbee of McKinney, Texas, at 217.

In the Girls Division, Beers overcame a sluggish front nine and a sudden-death playoff to pick up her third AJGA title of the summer.

It took quite a bit of doing by Beers to even reach the playoff. Two shots back heading into the final round and three shots behind Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, Calif., who was in the group ahead of her, after 15 holes, Beers birdied Nos. 16 and 17. Creamer then bogeyed No. 18, which Beers and second-round leader Nicole Hage of Coral Springs, Fla., parred to both get into the playoff.

"I honestly had no idea where Paula was and in my group it was head-to-head all day," said Beers, who shot a final round 37-33--70. "On 16 I knew I had to finally step up and get it done. I had a lot of opportunities on the back nine and on 16 and 17 they finally started to fall."

Once in the playoff, which began on No. 18, Beers stuck her second shot on the 346-yard, par-4 within 2 feet of the hole and converted on the birdie chance while Creamer and Hage both made pars.

"My ball actually ended up about a foot away from my divot the first time," Beers said. "I kind of chunked the first one, but the second time I just let it loose. I stood over the ball and knew I had to give it my all."

Beers had won earlier this summer at the AJGA Greater Greensboro Chrysler Junior and at the AJGA Avila Junior Classic, but this victory was a little more special.

"This is the one tournament I really wanted to win," said Beers, who has competed in the event four times. "It feels like home here and growing up only an hour down the road, I have always felt this to be my local tournament."

Rounding out the top of the Girls Division were Irene Cho of La Habra, Calif., who shot a final-round of 1-under-par 71 to finish a shot out of the playoff at 213 and Brittany Lincicome of Pinellas Park, Fla., and Chris Brady of Apex, N.C., at 221.
