Thunderstorm cancels final round, two-day scores determine champions

WICHITA, Kan. — After thunderstorms prematurely ended the final round of the Wildcat Golf/Wichita Junior Championship, the leaders after Thursday's second round were awarded the titles.

Kevin Tway, 16, of Edmond Okla., and Christopher Ward, 17, of McKinney, Texas, shared the Boys Division title with scores of 1-under-par 141. In the Girls Division, Brianna Do, 15, of Lakewood, Calif., won by seven shots at 3-under-par 139.

The Wildcat Golf/Wichita Junior Championship, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Crestview Country Club in Wichita, Kan., was shortened from 54 to 36 holes. The 99-player field included juniors from 23 states and Canada. Six Rolex Junior All-Americans participated in the tournament.

It is the first AJGA win for Tway, who shot a two-day score of 70-71—141.

“If the weather was good, I would have liked to keep playing,” Tway said. “I really wouldn't want to finish it out if it was going to be like this.”

Ward, who finished with scores of 69-72—141, earned his second AJGA victory, having previously won the 2004 PING Junior at The Woodlands.

“It's a really awesome feeling,” Ward said. “Hopefully it puts me in the running for maybe getting into the Canon Cup, which is a goal of mine.”

Coming in third was Robert Laird, 17, of Tulsa, Okla., with an even-par 142. Tied for fourth were Zach Cleland, 18, of Wichita, Michael Lee, 16, of Oklahoma City, Okla., and David Yujin Chung, 15, of Fayetteville, N.C., with scores of 1-over-par 143.

Earning her second AJGA victory, Brianna Do had a tournament low score of 68-71—139 to run away from the field. Do's first AJGA win came at the 2004 Nike Golf Junior at Quad Cities.

“I know everyone out there played their best golf game each day,” Do said. “And so did I.”

Do shared the award of low final round with MacKinzie Kline, 13, of Encinitas, Calif., who during Thursday's second round shot an even-par 71. Kline took second place with a score of 4-over-par 146. Tied for third was Kristin Ingram, 18, of Pasadena, Calif., and Jennie Arseneault, 17, of Grinnell, Iowa, each with scores of 5-over-par 147.
