International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) Presents IJGT at Sandpiper Santa Barbara, CA Sunday, December 7, 2008 FRANKLIN FINISHES STRONG FOR FIRST IJGT VICTORY Hummer Charges to the Top

SANTA BARBARA, CA—The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) traveled to Sandpiper in sunny California this weekend, and was welcomed to a challenging track overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Alex Franklin of San Rafael, CA claimed his first ever IJGT victory in the Boys 13-19 Division. Austen Sandoval of Sacramento, CA took home the title in the Boys 12 & Under Division and Kelsey Hummer of San Clemente, CA won an talented Girls 19 & Under Division. Franklin started the final-round two-shots off the lead, but quickly gained momentum carding even-par on the front nine. The turning point in his round came after the par-3 No. 6 where he proceeded to string a pair of back-to-back birdies. Finding his rhythm around the greens, Franklin played the last 12 holes at even-par to edge out Charlie Kern of Mercer Island, WA and Jim Liu of Smithtown, NY for the four-stroke victory. Kern improved on his opening round posting, by 7 strokes on Sunday, carding a 74 for a tournament total 155. Liu’s consistent rounds of 77, 78 respectively were good enough for a two-way-tie for second place with Kern. Consistent play proved to be enough to take home the title this week for Austen Sandoval in the Boys 12 & Under Division. Sandoval fired a first-round 82 and followed up with an 85 on Sunday to gain the victory. JJ Qualkenbush of La Quinta, CA took home the second place trophy with a tournament total 177. Following an opening round 89, Hummer found herself in the middle of the pack in the Girls 19 & Under Division. After a difficult first three holes of the final-round, Hummer battled back and played the next four holes at even-par. Hummer proceeded to play strong the last 11 holes, which included a birdie to finish at 171 for the tournament making her this week’s champion. Hillary Billingsley of Lemoore, CA finished in second place, just four shots behind with a 175 total. Rounding out the top three was Carolina Garza of San Clemente, CA who carded rounds of 95 and 85.
