CAULEY, WOODS CLAIM FIRST AJGA TITLES
Cauley wins wire-to-wire in Boys Division, while Woods overcomes a 2-shot deficit for victory

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — Wire-to-wire leader Bud Cauley of Jacksonville, Fla., registered a final-round 70 to clinch his first AJGA title at the Nike Golf Junior at Jacksonville with a three-round score of 69-71-70-210. Cheyenne Woods of Phoenix, also claimed her first AJGA title, shooting a final-round 72 to complete the two-shot come-from-behind victory with a 73-75-72-220 total.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Nike Golf Junior at Jacksonville is one of nine tournaments on the 2005 Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series schedule and highlighted 70 of the nation's best junior golfers. The 54-hole event was played on the Gold Course at Paradise Point—the oldest 18-hole golf course in the Marine Corps. The field featured junior golfers from 20 states, including 15 from the state of North Carolina.

Entering the final round of his last Nike event with a one-shot lead, Cauley recorded three consecutive birdies on the back nine to break away from the field.

“I made a good decision on No. 14 to kick-start my birdie run,” Cauley said of his decision to lay-up on the par-5, resulting in the first of three straight birdies. “It feels great to win, just so I can say I won an AJGA event.”

Morgan Hoffmann of Wyckoff, N.J., started the day in a tie for 11th and behind the strength of a bogey-free round of 66, surpassed the field and finished in second. The 6-under-par final round was the lowest of the tournament, and included six birdies and only 28 putts.

Brinson Paolini of Virginia Beach, Va., and Tripp Mcallister of Lake City, S.C., tied for third at two-under-par 214, while Connor Green of Selma, Calif., Scott Saal of Virginia Beach, Va., and Alexander Sitompul of Bradenton, Fla., round out the top five with three-round scores of 217.

The Girls Division also crowned a new champion, as Woods' front-nine 33 helped her overcome a two-shot deficit. Overall, Woods recorded five birdies on the day, including a birdie on the par-3 17th to seal the victory.

“The birdies came to me today. I hit the ball and it just landed close to the hole,” Woods said. “The win feels good. It's good to know I can come back to win.”

Second-place finisher Courtney Ellenbogen of Blacksburg, Va., fired a final-round 70, the only sub-par round of the week in the Girls Division. Her total score of 77-75-70-222 fell only two shots behind Woods' pace. Louisa Yang of Suwanee, Ga., finished in third with a 76-75-72-223.
