PECK WINS FOOTJOY INVITATIONAL BY SIX SHOTS AT 9-UNDER-PAR
Victory gives Olympia, Wash., native two AJGA wins in 2008

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Cameron Peck of Olympia, Wash., finished at 9-under-par 271 to capture the FootJoy Invitational by a six-shot margin for his first AJGA Invitational victory.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the FootJoy Invitational was a 72-hole stroke play event held at Sedgefield Country Club. The tournament field consisted of 99 boys, ages 12-18, from 23 states and seven foreign countries. The field played the par-70 course, home of the PGA TOUR's Wyndham Championship, at 7,065 yards.

Peck closed out his second AJGA title of the year, the first coming at the Wellstone Communities Junior at Craig Ranch, with a bogey-free final round of 4-under-par 66. He opened his round with 10 consecutive pars but finished in a flurry with four birdies in the final eight holes.

“I started off just playing solid and making pars, but I was getting nervous because people were going low. Once I got to the back nine though I knew I could do something there,” said Peck, who fired a 4-under-par 31 on the back nine.

An approach shot within five feet on the 483-yard par-4 No. 11 gave Peck momentum for the back nine.

“I didn't have a great lie for my approach on No. 11, but I was able to get it tight,” Peck said. “I hit my stride once I hit that shot.”

Peck, who entered the tournament ranked No. 40 in the Polo Golf Rankings, called this victory the biggest of his career.

“All of these guys out here are great players,” Peck said. “All four days I just played really well.”

William Sjaichudin of Carindale, Queensland, and Rak Cho of Brea, Calif., finished in a tie for second place at 3-under-par 277. Tied for fourth place at 2-under-par 278 were Phillip Choi of Orlando, Fla., and Cory Whitsett of Houston.

Friday's low round came from Byeong-hun An of Seoul, South Korea. An fired a new course-record of 5-under-par 65 in the final round to finish tied for 25th place.
