CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 13 - June 19, 2003 - 115 Many winners in 2003 Rehoboth Beach Junior Open During the Rehoboth Beach Ju- nior Open on June 9 at Rehoboth Beach Country Club, Tyler Wit- man hit a 6-iron shot that traveled only 15 yards. It was the shortest mid-iron shot I've ever seen him make--but it wasn't for lack of efff ort. Witman's drive on the 17th hole landed in the right side fairway bunker, only a foot or so from the lip. His 6-iron recovery shot hit the bunker lip, took off at a nearly vertical climb, and landed 45 feet closer to the hole. The state's 2003 high school golf champion then tried to make the green from well beyond 215 yards with his 2-iron. He hit it "a little thin" and the ball rolled up to the apron between two greenside bunkers. Witman's subsequent chip shot stopped a foot from the pin, and he made his routine par. Recoveries like that one led to Witman's eventual 74 score for the day, tied with Kyle Hall. The two boys in the 16-18 division then parred the first playoff hole. On the next hole, the par-five 9th, Witman put his second shot on the green, 35 feet below the hole. Hall's great flop shot attempt for a birdie failed, and Witman coolly rolled in his second putt from five feet for his 4 and the win. "This is the third time I've won this tournament since I was 13," Witman grinned, "but it's been a while." Julia Robinson repeated her first victory last year with a great 79, two shots below her handicap at Rehoboth, for a three-shot win over Christine Shimel of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Robinson, a Cape Region resident who will enter the ninth grade next fall at Worcester Prep, said she had a Fritz Schranck steady round, with only one dou- ble bogey on the first hole. "My drive missed the fairway, and the rough was really, really tough. I pulled my second shot left of the green, and couldn't recover. But I also had 2 up-and-downs for pars," she smiled. Max Wyndorf of Wilmington will play for Tatnall School next year, and he should be a b.ig help to the prep school team. He shot a fine 76 to win the 14-15 division, with Cape's John Purple taking runner-up honors. Johnny Mlynarski shot the best score of the day, winning the 11- 13 division with his 73. Jerry Temple took second place with his 84. During the lunch preceding the shotgun start to the golf tourna- ment, the Delaware State Golf As- sociation Scholarship Committee announced their annual award re- cipients of college scholarships, funded with several events throughout the year. Andrew Seagraves of Milford received a $4,000 scholarship, which he'll use to attend the Uni- versity of North Carolina at Karl Chalabala photo Kings Creek hosts Cadillac Invitational King's Creek Country Club hosted the National Kidney Foundation's Cadillac Invitational June 9. Sixty-eight golfers competed in the charity event, which raised approximately $10,000 for the National Kidney Foundation.

Seagraves is a mem- ber of Shawnee Country Club, a good player and a nice kid. David Simmons of Wilmington, who took second place to Witman in this year's state high school championship, earne'd a $3,000 stipend. He plans to enter the Pro- fessional Golf Management Pro- gram at New Mexico State Uni- versity. Laura Ford of Ursuline Acade- my in Wilmington was awarded $2,000. The active junior golfer has not yet selected a college. The Committee awarded Wit- man a $1,000 scholarship, which he'll use in conjunction with other scholarship funds to attend the University of Maryland. Jessica Reno from St. Mark's High School received a special engraved gift from the Commit- tee, in recognition of her many achievements in junior golf in Delaware. She's receiving a full scholarship from Maryland, and was therefore ineligible to receive scholarship proceeds from the DSGA. The scholarships are for one year, but are potentially renewable based on committee resources and the students' academic perform- ance while in college. Junior golfers who reside in the DSGA membership area, which includes all of Delaware and por- tions of Maryland and Pennsylva- nia, can learn more about the scholarship program by contact- ing Ron Barrows, head golf pro- fessional at the Rehoboth County Club at 227-3616.
