RECORDS FALL AS ROSENFELD CRUISES TO VICTORY AT AJGA LUCENT TECHNOLOGIES BOYS JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
2000 Polo Golf Junior Player of the Year sets AJGA 72-hole scoring record at 268

DALLAS - Matthew Rosenfeld of Plano, Texas, showed why he is the reigning Polo Golf Junior Player of the Year Friday, firing a final-round, 3-under-par 68 to win the AJGA Lucent Technologies Boys Junior Championship by four strokes while scorching the course for a record-setting 72-hole total of 16-under-par 268.

The 72-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, was held at the par-71 Lakewood Country Club. The field featured 132 players representing 28 states, Canada, Germany and Japan. Past champions include Tiger Woods, David Duval, Jim Furyk and Ty Tryon. Sixty-six players survived the 36-hole cut and played in the final two rounds.

Rosenfeld, who tied the AJGA 18-hole record with an 8-under-par 63 in Thursday's third round, added another chapter to the record book on Friday, breaking the all-time AJGA 72-hole scoring record which was previously set at 272.

Rosenfeld entered the day with a six-shot lead over Benjamin Spitz of Norwell, Mass., Kevin Larsen of Santa Barbara, Calif., and Anthony Kim of La Quinta, Calif. He quickly picked up where he left off with birdies on Nos. 4 and 5 to further distance himself from the pack before carding his third eagle of the tournament on the par-5, 523-yard ninth hole to extend his lead to 10 strokes.

"I still had nine holes to play, but my eagle on No. 9 definitely gave me a pretty big comfort zone," Rosenfeld said.

After playing the front nine in 4-under-par fashion, the 17-year-old carded a birdie on No. 17 to make up for a double bogey on No. 16 en route to a 3-under-par 68 and a 72-hole total of 71-66-63-68-268.

Rosenfeld finished the week at 6-under-par on the par-5, 491-yard 17th hole, which included a pair of both eagles and birdies.

"Everything went as planned today," Rosenfeld said. "I wanted to come in and play conservatively and I felt like I played solid all day.

"This means a lot to me," Rosenfeld said about winning his first major championship. "I've come so close the last few years, and to finally win Lucent feels great. And being so close to my home town really makes this even more special."

Rosenfeld tied for fourth at this event last year at Dallas Athletic Club and took second in 1999 on his home course of Gleneagles Country Club. The win marked his first AJGA victory of the year and sixth of his career.

Kim, who closed Rosenfeld's lead to four strokes with two holes to play, fired a final-round, 4-under-par 67 that included four birdies on the back nine to finish in second at 69-68-69-67-273. Jeff Bell of Plano, Texas, was third at 69-69-71-67-277, while Ryan Cochran of Paducah, Ky., finished fourth at 277. Robert Stone of Dallas, Kevin Silva of New Bedford, Mass., and Spitz finished in a three-way tie for fifth at 6-under-par 278.
