BRIDGESTONE GOLF JUNIOR CLASSIC
Treyburn Country Club
Durham, N.C. • April 21 - 23
 

FIELDS WINS THE BOYS DIVISION BY ONE STROKE
Park edges out Wong by one stroke for the Girls Division title

DURHAM, N.C — The final round at The Bridgestone Golf Junior Classic at Treyburn Country Club brought clear weather and tough competition. Jack Fields of Southern Pines, N.C., shot a tournament total 142 to win his first AJGA title. In the Girls Division, So-Hyun Park of Bradenton, Fla., carded two birdies, 13 pars and three bogeys in her final round to edge the rest of the pack.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Bridgestone Golf Junior Classic was held at Treyburn Country Club in Durham, N.C. The tournament was a 36-hole stroke play event and consisted of 63 boys and 21 girls, ages 12-18, from 18 states. The par-72 golf course played 7,044 yards for the boys and 6,095 yards for the girls.

Due to first-round weather delays, the final-round shotgun began after the first round was completed Sunday morning.

Fields was not affected by the weather delays and found a way to put together two solid rounds of 70 and 72. Even though he did not feel that he was hitting the ball well throughout the tournament, he found ways to get up and down from all over the course.

“I was scrambling today,” Fields said. “I did not feel very comfortable with my ball striking but I made a lot of putts and was able to find my way around the course.”

Park's win marked her second AJGA victory. In her final round she hit 12 fairways and 14 greens in regulation, which set her up for numerous birdie opportunities.

“This win feels great and I am proud to be a two-time AJGA winner,” Park said. “But nothing is as sweet as your first victory.”

In the Boys Division, Amory Davis of Winston-Salem, N.C., Lion Kim of Lake Mary, Fla., and Minghao Wang of Reunion, Fla., tied for second place at 143. Corey Nagy of Charlotte, N.C., and James White of Acworth, Ga., tied for fourth place at 144.

In the Girls Division, Kristina Wong of Vestal, N.Y., finished in second place with a tournament total 147. Rebecca Durham of St. Simons Island, Ga., finished in third place at 148.
