WOOD SECURES TOURNAMENT WIN IN FINAL ROUND
Puntawong seals second AJGA victory in Boys Division

ROME, Ga.-May Wood of Signal Mountain, Tenn., birdied the 364-yard, par-4 No. 16 to card a final round 75 for a tournament total 227, one stroke ahead of Tampa, Fla., native, Mallory Code. In the Boys Division, Chanin Puntawong of Bradenton, Fla., tallied a 1-over-par 73 for a 7-under-par 209.

The Henry-Griffitts Rome Junior Classic, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 99 players from 17 states, including 37 competitors from Georgia.

Wood entered Thursday's action tied with Code at 8-over-par 152. Wood and Code, who played all three rounds together, played even until No. 16 where Wood's 15-foot birdie putt gave her a one-shot lead heading into the final two holes where she held on for the win.

"That hole was the turning point in the round," Wood said. "I got chills down my back as I watched that putt fall."

Wood had three birdies and six bogeys to help her win her first ever AJGA victory.

"I'm ecstatic to win this tournament," the 17-year-old said. "It is a great tournament to put on my resume and it will be one that I will remember for a long time."

Code carded a final round 76 to take runner-up position. Whitney Sylvan of Columbia, S.C., was third with rounds of 79-79-72. Her 72 was the day's low and it catapulted her from seventh to third place.

In the Boys Division, Puntawong carded three birdies en route to his final round 73, four strokes ahead of his nearest competitor.

"I didn't knock down the putts that I had earlier in the week," the 14-year-old said. "But I really wanted to keep things simple and not make a lot of mistakes."

Puntawong has won two of the three AJGA events that he has played. His first victory came at the AJGA Compaq Junior All-Star Series at Cimarron in June.

"This win means so much more because I'm playing in a bigger and better field," Puntawong said. "This is going to help me get into more tournaments which is only going to make me a better player."

Four strokes back in second place was Will Dottley of Greenville, Miss., who carded a final round even-par 72 for a tournament total 213. Bryan Jones of Atlanta also carded a 72 for 2-under-par 214, which was good for third place. Ryan Blaum of Coral Gables, Fla., and Chris Rogers of Franklin, Tenn., tied for fourth place at 1-under-par 215. Blaum had a final round 2-under-par 70 and Rogers shot an even-par 70.
