TWO TIE FOR THE TITLE AT KINGWOOD
Braden and Fiegelman finish at 152

KINGWOOD, Texas - Travis Braden of Magnolia, Texas, shot a 74 at Kingwood Country Club's Island Course Sunday to tie David Fiegelman for medalist honors at the AJGA Preseason Junior at Kingwood. With the win, the two earn three exemptions into AJGA events this summer.

The 36-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 84 boys ages 13-18 from 20 states, including 50 Texans. The tournament, the last of three AJGA preseason events, was open to AJGA members who did not compete in any AJGA tournaments in 2000.

Braden fired rounds of 78-74-152 to tie for top honors.

"I wasn't swinging well yesterday," said Braden, 17. "Today I stuck it out and played every shot the best I could. It did not matter if it was for par or double bogey, I just stuck it out and tried to make all my putts."

Fiegelman carded rounds of 75-77-152 to tie for first-place. After laying up to the island green on the par-5 18th, he found his ball against the bridge and had to punch out to secure the tie.

"Today I was hitting the ball everywhere," said Fiegelman, 16, who was one-stroke off the lead after the first round. "I had to rely on my short game and putting. I don't think I missed anything under five feet. I didn't hit many greens, I just got up and down."

Philip Sanchez of The Woodlands, Texas, placed third with a two-day total 153, while Martin Piller of Duncanville, Texas, was fourth with a 154. Rounding out the top five were Kyle Allen of Timpson, Texas, and Ben Fuqua of South Pasadena, Calif., at 157.

The top-five finishers earned two exemptions into the next two AJGA events they properly apply for, while the top 15 earned one exemption.
