BRACHT'S 1-UNDER-PAR 71 WINS SRIXON QUALIFIER
Moon and Cho tie for Medalist Honors in the Girls Division for opportunity to play at Trophy Lake

UNION, Wash. â€”  School may seem to last longer than usual this year for Jens Bracht of Lake Forest Park, Wash. After shooting a one-under-par 71 to medal at the Srixon Qualifier for the Pacific Northwest International Junior Presented by Jeff Troesch, Bracht opted out of the championship this week to finish finals. Luckily, his counterparts in the Girls Division did not have the same issue to deal with. Seo Hee Moon of Mukilteo, Wash., and Christine Cho of Kent, Wash., both shot 3-over-par 75's to share the medalist honors and will be joining the rest of the girls field at Trophy Lake Golf and Casting.

The Srixon Qualifier Series, presented by the American Junior Golf Association, was conducted at Alderbrook Golf and Yacht Club in Union, Wash. Nine boys and two girls qualified for the 84-player field of the Pacific Northwest International Junior presented by Jeff Troesch, which begins on Tuesday, June 21, 2005 at Trophy Lake Golf and Casting in Port Orchard, Wash.

In the first AJGA event of his career, Bracht missed only one fairway and was 2-under-par after his first eight holes.

“I made a few good birdies,” said Bracht. “I missed two 2-foot putts, otherwise I would have done even better.”

Others who qualified for the Pacific Northwest International Junior presented by Jeff Troesch were Christopher Cho of Kent, Wash., Philip Snow of Woodinville, Wash., James Neill of Bainbridge Island, Wash., Gary Quinn of Anthem, Ariz., Michael Leibfried of Rolling Hills, Calif., Christopher Evans of Grapeview, Wash., Kevin Spooner of West Vancouver, British Columbia, Rennan Joo of Las Vegas, and Andrew Ellis of Fircrest, Wash.

In the Girls Division, 13-year-old Moon and 17-year-old Cho both shot 3-over-par 75's to take medalist honors. Both girls contribute much of their success to their putters.

“I know that my putting saved me out there today,” said Cho. “I was having trouble with the out of bounds, but my putting really helped me out.”

Moon surpassed her initial goal before entering Sunday's qualifier.

“I thought that it would be good to shoot 4-over-par,” said Moon. “Luckily, I came in under my goal.”

Both girls think they will need to play better in the championship starting on Tuesday. This will be the first Open Event for both of them.

In addition to the participant's gaining entry into this week's event, Allen Kelley of Veneta, Ore., Michael Casca of Camarillo, Calif., Austin Uhl of Phoenix, and Cory Mehl of Seattle, earned a tournament exemption in lieu of playing in the Pacific Northwest International Junior presented by Jeff Troesch.
