AJGA COMPAQ JUNIOR ALL-STAR CLASSIC AT KINGWOOD
Kingwood Country Club - Island Course
Kingwood, Texas
June 25-27, 2001

LOWRY CLAIMS SECOND TITLE OF SUMMER AT KINGWOOD WITH FINAL-ROUND 71
Niederkohr holds off competition to claim Girls Division title

KINGWOOD, Texas-Randy Lowry of Spring, Texas, claimed his second AJGA tournament championship of the month Wednesday at the AJGA Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Kingwood after posting a tournament total of 142. Holly Niederkohr of Marysville, Ohio, won the Girls Division title with a two-day total of 17-over-par 163.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Compaq/David Leadbetter Junior All-Star Series was created in 1998 to give 13-to-15-year-old members more opportunities to play at the national level. The field at the Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Kingwood featured 91 golfers from 23 states, Canada and Guam.

Lowry, who last month won the Boys Division at the Golfweek Chicago Junior, hit 16 greens in regulation en route to carding his second round of 1-under-par 71 of the tournament. The 14-year-old used a conservative approach in order to tame Kingwood Country Club's difficult Island Course.

"I knew the course was tough," Lowry commented. "So I never got too aggressive on my shots. I just played to the center of the fairways to set up birdie putts."

The Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Kingwood marks the second championship of Lowry's young career. He used Kingwood's lengthy par 5s to shave strokes off his score.

"The par 5s were where I got most of my shots and made up ground," said Lowry, who was 4-under on par 5 holes this week.

Jake Creel of Dothan, Ala., Martin Piller of Duncanville, Texas, and Kenny Palmer of Scottsdale, Ariz., shared second after finishing at 4-over-par 148. Brent Pickrell of Austin, Texas, took fifth at 6-over-par 150.

Fourteen-year-old Holly Niederkohr claimed her first career AJGA title after carding a final-round 80 to finish with a two-day total of 17-over-par 163. Niederkohr cited the difficulty of the course in preventing her from posting a lower score.

"I don't feel like I played my best," Niederkohr said. "But I was glad to hold on and win today. The AJGA is a big deal, any type of trophy here is very nice."

Vanessa Brockett of Los Angeles won the Nabisco Oreo Cookie Low Final Round award with a 4-over-par 77 Wednesday to bring her tournament total to 166 and finish in second. Natalia Godoy of Cypress, Texas, closed the tournament in third with a score of 87-88--175.
