SUMMIT, N.J. — College visits will have to wait for Brian Bartow of Rye, N.Y., who earned the right to play in The Lincoln Mercury Junior at Canoe Brook after qualifying for the tournament Monday with a 2-under-par 70. Monique Kim of Harrington Park, N.J., and Mary Mattson of Ijamsville, Md., were co-medalists in the Girls Division of the Srixon Qualifier Series at 6-over-par 78.

The Srixon Qualifier Series, an 18-hole event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, was conducted at Canoe Brook Country Club's South Course. Ninety-five junior golfers — 81 boys and 14 girls — from 13 states competed in the event.

Bartow had planned a series of visits to college campuses in Ohio this week, but postponed those plans after qualifying with medalist honors at Canoe Brook. Bartow said he has been playing well the past month and carried the momentum into the qualifier.

“I've been playing really solid lately,” he said. “I birdied three out of five par-5s today; I didn't have any three-putts.”

Twelve other boys advanced from the Srixon Qualifier to compete in the tournament: Charlie Niland of Burlington, Conn.; and Paul Park of Wayne, N.J.; each of whom shot even-par 72. Michael Corbo of Mendham, N.J., David Gilberg of Scarsdale, N.Y., Nick Gliozzo of Colts Neck, N.J., Jason Ochroch of Ambler, Pa., and Ryan Phelan of Princeton Junction, N.J., tied at 1-over-par 73. Rounding out the qualifier field in the Boys Division were Anthony Aloi of Plainsboro, N.J., Robert Cronheim of Watchung, N.J., Chris Dejohn of Rocky Hill, Conn., Eric Feather of Bethlehem, Pa., and Alex Luxenburg of River Vale, N.J. at 74.

Both medalists in the Girls Division said they felt they could have done better. Kim had two double bogeys on Nos. 4 and 8, and a triple on No. 18. The Lincoln Mercury Junior at Canoe Brook will be her second AJGA tournament of the summer after taking the winter off.

“I didn't play in the winter at all — I was burned out,” Kim said. “Now, my mental game is a lot better, I'm playing smarter and hitting straighter.”

Beginning on the 16th hole in the shotgun start, Kim posted a birdie despite a tee shot into the woods, thanks to a 25-foot putt from the fringe. Her second birdie of the day came on the par-4 No. 9 after making a 10-foot putt.

“I came out, played my game and it worked out,” she said. “I try not to pay attention to anyone around. I block everything out.”

Mattson said the strongest part of her round was her short game.

“I hit the ball poorly, but my short game saved me,” she said. “The greens were in good shape. They rolled well.”

Four bogeys and two double bogeys were countered by a pair of birdies on Nos. 4 and 15 to leave Mattson with a 6-over-par-78.

Also qualifying for the girls' tournament field is Marisa Kamelgarn of Mahopac, N.Y., who carded an 80.
