HARGRAY JUNIOR CLASSIC AT INDIGO RUN
Golden Bear Golf Club
Hilton Head Island, S.C.
June 26-29, 2001

DEFENDING CHAMP GIBBONS TAKES LEAD AFTER SECOND-ROUND
Hage continues to hold lead in Girls Division

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.-Defending champion Joel Gibbons of Ocala, Fla., made his move after a three-hour weather delay and holds a one-shot lead after 36 holes of the AJGA Hargray Junior Classic at Indigo Run held at the Golden Bear Golf Club. Gibbons fired a 2-under-par 70 to follow his 3-under-par 69 and leads Luke List of Ringgold, Ga., and Bill Roach, Jr. of Knoxville, Tenn., by one shot. In the Girls Division, Nicole Hage of Coral Springs, Fla., leads with a two-day total of 1-under-par 143.

The Hargray Junior Classic at Indigo Run, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 84 players from 19 states and includes four Polo Junior Golf All-Americans.

Gibbons used two birdies on his last four holes to grab the second-round lead.

"I finished strong on my last four holes," Gibbons said. "The long delay broke my rhythm, but fortunately, I was able to respond and play well in the rain down the stretch."

The 18-year-old Gibbons was very consistent in his round, carding four birdies, two bogeys and 12 pars. His bogeys came virtue of a three-putt and a missed three-footer for par.

Winning here last year will help Gibbons in his final round tomorrow. Gibbons was the 2000 champ with a score of 3-under-par 213.

"It gives me the confidence to know that I can play well on this course," Gibbons, a Colorado State signee, said. "I'm really looking forward to tomorrow and hope that I can play to my potential, and keep doing what I'm doing."

List and Roach, Jr., who were tied for second after the first-round, shot identical 71s to trail by one shot at 4-under-par 140. Chris Robinson (69-73) of Memphis, Tenn., Brian Duncan (69-73) of Greenville, S.C., and Rhett Lewis (67-75) of Douglas, Ga., are all tied for fourth at 2-under-par 142.

In the Girls Division, Hage holds a three-shot lead over Ashley Hoagland of Palmetto, Fla., and Lisa Tyler of Lighthouse Point, Fla., who are at 2-over-par 146.

Hage shot a 4-over-par 76 Thursday after firing a career-best 67 yesterday.

"I wasn't hitting the ball great today," said the 15-year-old Hage. "I was going for the holes instead of shooting at the center of the green and two-putting. I had only one birdie today."

Hage double-bogeyed her second hole of the day (No. 11). She got back to 1-over-par with a birdie at No. 2, but bogeys on Nos. 4, 7 and 9 dropped her to 4-over-par on the day.

Hage will have a different approach for tomorrow's round.

"I won't be as aggressive tomorrow," Hage said. "I'll probably shoot to the center of the green and two-putt for my par. I'm going to play it safe tomorrow."

Hage, who was runner-up last year in this event, thinks last year's experience will help her in the final round.

"The experience will really help me tomorrow," Hage added. "Just being in the situation and on this course is a big benefit for me. I'm very excited to be in the final pairing tomorrow."

Hoagland shot a 2-over-par 74 after an even-par 72 in the first round. Tyler carded a 3-over-par 75 to follow her 1-under-par 71.
