TWO FIRST-TIME CHAMPS CROWNED
Olson and Mackenzie Take Two Different Routes to Claim Victory

AURORA, Ore. - Erik Olson of Renton, Wash., and Paige Mackenzie of Yakima, Wash., were crowned champion in their respective divisions at the PING Langdon Farms Junior Classic. Olson's final-round 2-over-par 73 was just enough to grind-out a first place finish in the tightly contested Boys Division. In the Girls Division, Mackenzie strolled to victory with a final-round 3-over-par 74 to win by five strokes.

The PING Langdon Farms Junior Classic, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 84 of the nation's top junior golfers ages 13-18. Hosted by Langdon Farms Golf Club, this week's field included players from nine states and Canada, five of whom are Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

While both Olson and Mackenzie led at the end of the two previous rounds, the path they took to the championship was quite different.

Olson did not take sole possession of first place until the back nine during the final round. He began the day tied for the lead, and then trailed Sean Packer of Sumner, Wash., by two at the turn before coming back to secure victory with a tap-in par on the final hole of the tournament to win by one stroke.

"That was the longest 8-inch putt of my life," Olson said of his final putt. "I didn't want to think about what was going on. I just kept playing golf and let everything work itself out."

Everything worked itself out great for Olson, especially on the back nine. Packer's front-side 31 was followed by a back-nine 44, opening the door for Olson. Olson also fought off Michael Putnam of University Place, Wash., and David Fern of Spokane, Wash., with tournament totals of 214, defending champion Reid Rader of Kenmore, Wash., at 215, and Joseph Kim of Laguna Niguel, Calif., and Packer at 216.

"I knew that I just needed to keep it going and finish the round doing what I was doing," Olson continued. "This gives me the confidence to know that I can play with the best players in the nation."

Mackenzie's road to victory was a lot less stressful. She led wire-to-wire with no serious challenge from behind. Her 221 tournament total placed her five shots ahead of Sung Lee of Tacoma, Wash. Defending champion Hwanhee Lee of Cerritos, Calif., placed third with a tournament total of 230.

Although she had a sizeable lead since the end of the first round, Mackenzie, who will attend the University of Washington in the fall, was put in the precarious position of keeping it that way.

"I was holding my breath all day," Mackenzie said. "I just kept telling myself to keep attacking. This was a huge stepping stone for the rest of my summer and as I go off to college."

Mackenzie was happy to get an AJGA victory under her belt just as her junior career winds to an end.
"I've had leads before, but I always seem to throw it away," she said. "But now, it feels like all of my hard work has finally paid off. It's just a mental relief that I was able to get through it."
