FIRST-TIME WINNERS TAKE CHARGE AT MINDMATTERS QUALIFIER
Formeck medals in Girls Divison, Stough and Waesche III medal in Boys Division

BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. โ€” Samantha Formeck of Northern Cambria, Pa., carded a 2-over-par 74 to capture medalist honors in the MindMatters Junior Championship Srixon Qualifier by one shot in her AJGA debut. In the Boys Division, Kyle Stough of Laurel, Md., and Roger Waesche III of Timonium, Md., fired 2-under-par rounds of 70 to share medalist honors.

The MindMatters Junior Championship Srixon Qualifier, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 81 boys and 11 girls โ€” ages 12 to 18 โ€” competing for a total of 18 spots in this week's championship field. Tom's Run at the Chestnut Ridge Golf Resort & Conference Center hosted the event and also will host the championship.

Formeck showed no fear on her opening hole, tallying a birdie on the par-5 No. 18. The 15-year-old rookie attributed her first win to her father, who doubles as her swing coach.

โ€œThis win is special to me because my dad has coached me,โ€ Formeck said. โ€œIt's great to win, and I'm confident heading into the tournament.โ€

Three other players in the Girls Division qualified for this week's MindMatters Junior Championship. Rachel Rohanna of Waynesburg, Pa., shot an 81, while Stephanie Kim of Bayside, N.Y., and Kalynd Carson of The Woodlands, Texas, registered rounds of 83 to qualify for the championship field.

In addition, three players accepted a tournament exemption in place of a qualifying position. Katie Rogner of Fowler, Ohio, finished second at 75, Julia Thead of Poway, Calif., finished third with a 76, while Christina Thomas of Rocky River, Ohio finished fourth at 80.

In the Boys Division, Stough also broke through and medaled in his first AJGA Srixon qualifier. With four birdies and an eagle, the 17-year-old said he entered the tournament with modest expectations.

โ€œI was just hoping to make the field,โ€ Stough said. โ€œIf I expected to shoot 66, I'd only get mad at myself when I hit a bad shot. I just kept a nothing-to-lose attitude.โ€

Waesche III earned medalist honors in a similar fashion, carding six birdies on the day en route to his 2-under-par 70. After bogeying his first hole of the day, Waesche rebounded with birdies on three of his next five holes, propelling him to the top of the leaderboard.

Qualifiers filled 14 positions in the Boys Division championship field, with three players shooting scores of par or better: Dennis Kwon of Rockville, Md., and Brendan Borst of Pittsburgh, Pa., finished in third at 71, while Jeffrey Hinds of Pittsburgh, Pa., shot even-par 72. Other Boys Division qualifiers include: Andrew Gagarin of Bethesda, Md., Zachary Metcalfe of Greensburg, Pa., John Jenson of Newark, Del., Hyun Seok Lim of Fullerton, Calif., Stephen Derminio of Center Valley, Pa., James McGrath of Connellsville, Pa., Christopher Valle of Victor, N.Y., Stephen Dressel of Malvern, Pa., Brixton Albert, Lititz, Pa., and Andrew Rickard of New Castle, Pa.

In addition to the 14 qualifiers, eight players accepted tournament exemptions instead of a position in this week's championship field, including co-medalist Waesche III. Robert Shogry of Pittsburgh, Pa., finished third at 71; John Burns of Loveland, Ohio, Bobby Urso of Beverly Hills, Mich., and Kurt Voss of Rochester, N.Y., shot 72; Matt Barnes of Erie, Pa., Christopher Mathews of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., Matthew Kennerknecht of Vienna, Va., and Kyle Bates of Avon Lake, Ohio, shot 73 to qualify also.
