AJGA LA PURISIMA JUNIOR
La Purisima Golf Course
Lompoc, Calif.
July 2-5, 2001

LEY COMES FROM FOUR DOWN TO WIN AT LA PURISIMA
Lee cruises to second-career victory in Girls Division

LOMPOC, Calif.- Tyler Ley of Santa Barbara, Calif., fired a 3-under-par 69 to overcome a four stroke deficit and win the Boys Division of AJGA La Purisima Junior. Stella Lee of Irvine, Calif., cruised to a 9-stroke victory in the Girls Division after carding a 1-over-par 73.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, was held at the par-72 La Purisima Golf Course. The field featured 87 players representing five states, England and Scotland, and included five Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

Ley came out firing at the leaders with birdies on Nos. 4, 7, and 9 to put him within striking distance. After a bogey on No. 14, Ley regrouped on the 532-yard, par-5 15th, sticking a wedge close to the hole from 120 yards out and draining the short birdie putt to pull him closer to the leaders. Blake Brown of Atascadero, Calif., had the lead heading into the final round and was able to build on his lead early with birdies on his first two holes, but a triple bogey on the 167-yard, par-3 17th gave Ley the opening he needed.

"I talked to Blake after he finished No. 10 and knew he said he was 2-under on the day," Ley said. "I didn't know if I still had a chance to win, but I just kept grinding. I knew shooting a 33 on the front would at least put me close."

Ley carded an even-par 36 on the back and was able to save par on No. 18 to preserve his one-shot lead over Brown and earn his first career AJGA victory in only his second event.

"The win means a lot to me," the 17-year-old said. "I was finally able to go out and show everyone what I can do."

Brown finished with a 2-over-par 74 to put himself alone in second with a three-day total of 215, just shy of his first AJGA title.

"I just had one bad hole today," Brown said. "I played with Tyler the first two days and I knew he had it in him. If anyone else was going to win, it was going to be Tyler. He was playing some good golf."

Kevin Larsen, also of Santa Barbara, finished third at 216. Andrew Price, of Mission Viejo, Calif., Jon Friedman of Irvine, Calif., and Brandon Christianson of Valencia, Calif., finished in a three-way tie for fourth at 217.

In the Girls Division, Lee entered the final round with a 10-shot lead, but it didn't stop her from playing aggressive. Lee got off to a hot start with a pair of birdies on Nos. 2 and 6 en route to a 1-under 35 on the front nine. On the 365-yard, par-4 2nd hole, Lee put her approach within a foot of the hole and tapped in for birdie. The 17-year-old then sunk a 10-footer for birdie on No. 6 to extend her lead as the wind started to blow.

"I'm very happy to win," Lee said. "I just wanted to shoot as well as yesterday. I hit the ball very consistent today, but the wind picked up on the back which made it hard to hit greens so I just tried to make pars."

Lee shot 2-over on the back to finish the day with a 73 and give her a three-day total of 214. Irene Cho, of La Habra, Calif., fired a 2-under-par 70 to jump into second place at 223. Walailak Satarak of Paramount, Calif., finished third with 76-76-74--226.
