MCCARTHY FULL SPEED AHEAD TO VICTORY AT
JUNIOR ALL-STAR AT PETERSBURG
Feng continues to dominate field

PETERSBURG, Va. — After a phenomenal second-round 4-under-par 68, Denny McCarthy, 15, of Burtonsville, Md., managed to do it all over again in the final round of the Junior All-Star at Petersburg. His final-round 68 gave him a tournament total 8-under-par 208 and a three-stroke victory in the Boys Division. In the Girls Division, Yueer Cindy Feng, 12, of Orlando, Fla., maintained her second-round lead to finish in first place at 3-over-par 219.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Junior All-Star at Petersburg was a 54-hole stroke play event at the Country Club of Petersburg. The 95-player field featured juniors from 23 states and Canada. The Boys Division played the par-72 Country Club of Petersburg at 6,786 yards, while the Girls Division played the course at 6,004 yards.

McCarthy carded five birdies en route to victory; four of which were on the back nine.

“I had a solid front nine but I got hot [again] on the back nine,” McCarthy said.

This victory is McCarthy's first in his AJGA career and he attributed it to having a good support system.

“This experience was awesome,” McCarthy said. “I stayed with friends of my family and they made it fun. So, I was relaxed and calm each day and able to play my game.”

Grayson Murray of Raleigh, N.C., finished in second at 5-under-par 211. Kyle Wilshire of Georgetown, Ky., and Motin Yeung of Orlando, Fla., finished in third and fourth respectively at 4-under-par 212 and 3-under-par 213. Ben Fogler of Elgin, S.C., Daniel Berger of Jupiter, Fla., and David Saka of Waipahu, Hawaii, all finished tied for fifth at 2-under-par 214.

Feng's round was steady and included birdies on Nos. 4 and 18.

“I drove the ball okay and putted okay,” Feng said. “I had long putts and not a lot of birdie chances so I just kept making par.”

Looking ahead, Feng aims to stay focused on improving her game.

“I go into each event expecting to beat myself,” Feng said. “I just want to work on being better.”

Finishing in second, five strokes off the lead at 8-over-par 224, was Shannon Aubert of Augusta, Ga. Rounding out the top three were Janie Jackson of Huntsville, Ala., and Linda Luo of Richmond, British Columbia who tied at 14-over-par 230.
