Champs! (Again)
Team USA defends title, Flores takes home individual honor

TOYOTA CITY, Japan ? Well it?s a clean sweep. Just as I predicted way back when I was a little bitty boy, Team USA picked up some hardware on Friday, defending their Toyota World Junior Golf Cup title. Not only that, but Erik Flores - thanks to a 20-under tournament - won the individual competition by six stokes. It was a joyous day in Japan for the group of Americans, who ended up winning the tournament by an astounding 12 shots over Columbia. (more)

Day Three Round-Up
Flores, Team USA smoke field at Toyota World Junior Golf Cup

TOYOTA CITY, Japan ? If you ask them, most golf-people will tell you that ?moving day? in a tournament is the day prior to the last day of the competition. That?s exactly what the Americans had heard and apparently they decided to take full advantage. A tournament best round of 18-under is what they had for the rest of the field on "moving day." Erik Flores heard before closing his round that Columbian Andres Echavarria had broken his two-day-old course-record of 65 with a 64. Erik decided he didn?t like that idea, so he birdied two of the last four holes, turning in his own 64 to tie the new 10-minute-old record. (more)

TOYOTA CITY, Japan ? A wild day of golf left the American team sitting in second place, just a single stroke behind leader England. Erik Flores followed up his course-record 65 with a 71, leaving him at the number one slot in the individual competition, three strokes ahead of four golfer tied for second. The stars of the day for the U.S. team were Matt Swan and Nick Smith, both of whom shot a 3-under 69. Michael Green followed those scores up by carding an even 72; two shots better than his score from round one. (more)

Pre-Tourney Talk
Team USA Ready to Take on the World in Junior World Golf Cup Beginning Tuesday

TOYOTA CITY, Japan ? Last Thursday, the American team began a journey halfway around the world. Five days later they are finally just a single day away from the reason we all came. Erik Flores competed in the long drive competition on Sunday, smoking a 322-yard drive - a mere eight yards shorter than the eventual winner - showing the Americans? readiness for the challenge that lies in front of them.
