KIM EARNS MEDALIST HONORS WITH 4-UNDER-PAR 68
Chean takes top honors in Girls Division; looks to continue success this week at Coto de Caza

COTO DE CAZA, Calif.  Alex Shi Yup Kim of Fullerton, Calif., earned medalist honors at the Srixon Qualifier for the Family Toyota/Family Honda Junior presented by The First American Corporation Monday by firing a 4-under-par 68, two shots better than the field. In the Girls Division, Jasmine Chean of Irvine, Calif., took the top spot, carding an even-par 72.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Srixon Qualifier for the Family Toyota/Family Honda Junior presented by The First American Corporation was held at Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club — South Course. The Srixon Qualifier featured 100 boys and girls, ages 12-18. Ninety-six players from California and four juniors from Nevada competed in the event. Twelve boys and four girls gained entry into the Family Toyota/Family Honda Junior presented by The First American Corporation, which begins Wednesday.

Kim got off to a fast start, making birdie on the first hole and carding a 33 on the front nine at the South Course at Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club. Kim tallied six birdies on the day while taking medalist honors with a 4-under-par 68.

“I really didn't hit the ball well but I putted well and made some pars when I needed to,” Kim said.

Kim will not be competing in the Family Toyota/Family Honda Junior presented by The First American Corporation, as he opted out and added one tournament exemption to his AJGA Performance Based Entry status. Kim had already competed in his maximum allotment of five AJGA Open tournaments in 2005.

Drew Exon of Irvine, Calif., carded a 1-under-par 71 to qualify for the tournament. John Lim of Torrance, Calif., also qualified, shooting an even-par 72.

Rounding out the qualifiers in the Boys Division are California natives Josh Perez of Villa Park, Christopher K. Lee of Los Angeles, Ronald Alford of La Quinta, Justin Lee of Tarzana, Matthew Cole of Coto de Caza, Andrew Wood of Alameda, Bryant Williams of Orinda, Boz Bascou of Woodbridge, Michael Im of Fullerton and Tim Lo of Los Angeles.

In the Girls Division, Chean, who began her round on No. 18, was consistent throughout the day, recording matching 36s on each side to claim medalist honors by two strokes.

“I found the fairways and greens all day,” Chean said. “Hopefully I can relax and play pretty well in the tournament. If I can play like I did today, I'll be happy.”

Three more California natives gained entry into the Family Toyota/Family Honda Junior presented by The First American Corporation via the Srixon Qualifier, including Mindy Kim of Diamond Bar, Stephanie Yocum of Palos Verdes Estates and Joy Trotter of Chino Hills, all with matching 75s.
