Powell leads AJGA Florida Junior into final round
Newell new Girls Division leader

WESTON, Fla. — Austin Powell of Jupiter, Fla., took the lead at the AJGA Florida Junior after shooting a 6-under-par 66 for a two-day tournament total 8-under-par 136. A.J. Newell of Tampa, Fla., carded even-par 72 to become the Girls Division leader by one stroke heading into the final round.

The AJGA Florida Junior is a 54-hole tournament conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Weston Hills Country Club — Tour Course. The event features 54 boys and 24 girls, ages 12-18, from nine states and 10 countries. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 6,987 yards while the Girls Division is playing the course at 6,095 yards.

Powell carded six birdies and no bogeys during the second round at Weston Hills Country Club — Tour Course, thanks to a 25-foot putt on No. 18 to save par. He had a clear mindset heading into Wednesday and will carry the momentum into the final round.

“My mentality was to just play one shot at a time and try and make as many birdies as possible,” Powell said. “I knew going in I wasn't in the lead and I also had 36 holes to go, so I just tried to chip away and hopefully shoot a round like I did today. Tomorrow, I'm going to try and not really think about what is at stake. It's hard, but I'm going to really focus on keeping in the moment and try to go as low as I can.”

Kristian Caparros of Miami Lakes, Fla., is in second place with a 5-under-par 139 and Edward Figueroa of Naples, Fla., is in third with a 4-under-par 140. Tied for fourth at 2-under-par 142 are Ramsey Touchberry of Bradenton, Fla., and Jared Carver of Weston, Fla.

Newell birdied her last hole, No. 9, to finish the second round in first place. She feels optimistic about Thursday's round, believing there is potential to score lower.

“I am going to try and stay confident,” Newell said. “I think the score is out there and I think I'm capable of going a handful under par here. I'm just going to go with that and see how it goes tomorrow. I'm going to play confident and try to do my best.”

Natalia Forero of Cali, Colombia, carded a two-day tournament total of even-par 144 to sit in second place. Kailey Walsh of Boca Raton, Fla., moved up eight spots on the leaderboard with the help of a hole-in-one on No. 17. She is now in third place with 3-over-par 147.
