LARSEN HOLDS ON TO GARNER VICTORY AT ENGLISH TURN
Qualifier Pandolfi grabs Girls Division title

NEW ORLEANS - Kevin Larsen of Santa Barbara, Calif., shot a final-round 72, edging out Chris Wheeler of Allen, Texas, by one stroke to win the Boys Division at the 24th annual AJGA Compaq Junior Classic at English Turn. Jennifer Pandolfi of Navarre, Fla., who qualified for the tournament via the Pepsi Qualifier Series, fired a 69 to claim a one-stroke victory in the Girls Division and her first AJGA title.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association for the 13th year on English Turn Golf & Country Club's par-72 layout, the field included 86 players representing 19 states and Germany. Past participants include Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Justin Leonard, David Duval, and Grace Park.

Larsen entered Friday's final round of the 54-hole event with a four-shot lead over Robert Stone of Dallas and first-round leader Nathan Smith of Soquel, Calif. After making the turn at 1-over-par, Larsen played the back nine in 1-under-par fashion with birdies on Nos. 12 and 15 to finish at 70-66-72--208.

Wheeler, who sat five shots back heading into Friday, carded two birdies on the front nine to make the turn at 2-under-par. After two more birdies on Nos. 10 and 11, Wheeler carded his fifth birdie of the day on the par-5, 505-yard 15th hole to move to 7-under-par, one shot back of Larsen. But the 16-year-old Larsen proved to be too much, carding a birdie on No. 15 to move to 9-under-par. On No. 18, Larson played it safe with a two-shot lead, laying up out of a fairway bunker for bogey to hold on for his second AJGA title.

"I was scrambling all day, but I was able to scramble well," said Larsen who won the AJGA Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Maumee Bay last year. "I was able to get up and down a lot and I was striking the ball fairly well.

"When I heard (Chris) Wheeler was 7-under-par (for the tournament), I knew I needed to play well the last four holes and not have any bogeys. I definitely was able to make some clutch putts at clutch times."

Wheeler finished second at 72-69-68--209, while Smith was third with rounds of 65-75-72--212. Stone finished in fourth at 215, and Jason Woyak of Pace, Fla., and Tarik Can of New York City tied for fifth at 218.

In the Girls Division, Pandolfi carded five birdies en route to her final-round 69. Pandolfi entered the day trailing the leaders by five shots. After three birdies on the front nine, the 15-year-old Pandolfi finished with an even-par 36 on the back nine.

"I was able to hit it straight today and make a couple of clutch putts," Pandolfi said. "I really just went out and tried to play against the course and not worry about what Sara (Jones) was doing.

Sara Jones of Valencia, Calif., who was 10-under-par on the front nine this week, finished one-shot back at 75-72-75--222. Alexis Rather of Tupelo, Miss., finished third at 72-77-76--225.
