MILLER LEADS FIELD WITH ONLY ROUND BELOW PAR
AT COMPAQ JUNIOR CLASSIC AT THE PINES

Schmucker and Dahl tied for first in Girls Division

NISSWA, Minn. - Zack Miller of San Rafael, Calif., raced to a 3-shot lead in the Boys Division after carding an opening round 69 Tuesday at the AJGA Compaq Junior Classic at the Pines. Amy Schmucker of Cold Spring, Minn., and Erica Dahl of Fargo, N.D. share the lead in the Girls Division at 5-over-par 77.

In its fifth year, the American Junior Golf Association's Compaq Junior Classic at the Pines features a field of 84 players representing 17 states and Canada. 40 Minnesotans are competing in their home state this week.

"I came out today just trying to put myself in contention because you can't win it on the first day," Miller said of his opening round. "I came out and hoped to be near the top of the leaderboard and go from there the rest of the week."

The 17-year-old Miller used four birdies on the back nine to wrap up the first round at 3-under par. Miller has never finished better than fourth in 14 career AJGA events. Citing the difficulty of the course, he said he plans to continue to employ a conservative strategy while seeking his first-career AJGA win.

"The course can really get you in trouble if you hit bad tee-shots," the Californian said. "I played it safe today and hit irons off the tee. I was able to hit a lot of greens and my putts were dropping."

Kyle Nathan of Winnetka, Ill., sits in second place in the Boys Division with an opening round of even-par 72.

"I figured I had to play conservative and not be too aggressive," Nathan said. "I was able to stick to my game plan pretty well."

David Schultz of Fargo, N.D., is third after shooting 1-over-par 73, while Spencer Hutton of St. Cloud, Minn., and Charlie Ruppert of Minot, N.D., share fourth with scores of 2-over-par 74.

In the Girls Division, Schmucker and Dahl both shot opening rounds of 5-over-par 77 and stand tied for first. Dahl said she will look to focus on her own performance as the tournament continues.

"I'm not going to worry about (the rest of the field)," the 17-year-old Dahl said. "I'm just going to concentrate on my game. Tomorrow is just another day."

Schmucker admitted she was pleasantly surprised with her score Tuesday.

"I had a tough time at the range this morning," Schmucker said. "I was thinking I'd go back to the basics and scrap together something decent. So I am pretty happy with a 77."

Three strokes off the lead in third is Agnes Kim of Woodbury, Minn. Kim fired an opening round of 8-over-par 80.

Second-round action gets underway Wednesday at Grand View Lodge, The Pines with tee-times beginning at 7:30 a.m. For more information on the Compaq Junior Classic at the Pines, contact tournament headquarters at (218) 963-0001.
