3-WAY TIE ATOP BOYS DIVISION LEADERBOARD IN QUAD CITIES

Woods takes a 1-stroke lead after firing opening-round 71

 

LONG GROVE, Iowa – Three players are jammed atop the boys division leaderboard at the Nike Golf Junior at Quad Cities. Scott Pinckney of Anthem, Ariz., Michael Amato of Highland Mills, N.Y., and Morgan Hoffmann of Wyckoff, N.J., each shot rounds of 4-under-par 68.

Cheyenne Woods of Phoenix, Ariz., fired a 1-under-par 71 and holds a 1-stroke lead in the girls division. Brianna Do of Lakewood, Calif., and Tia Gannon of Hilton Head Island, S.C., shot even-par 72 and are tied for second.

The Nike Golf Junior at Quad Cities is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Glynns Creek Golf Course.  The tournament features 84 of the nation’s premier junior golfers, ages 12-15, from 24 states and Canada.

“I played really solid,” said Hoffmann, the who is making just his third AJGA appearance. “I wasn’t driving the ball that well but my irons were perfect.”

The 14-year-old Hoffmann had five birdies and one bogey while hitting 15-of-18 greens in regulation, but couldn’t wrestle away sole possession of first place. After starting on hole No. 10, Amato had six one-putt greens and fired a 3-under-par 33 on the front-nine. Pinckney matched a front nine 34 with a 34 on the back to complete the three-way tie at 68.

“I had a lesson with my coach before coming here and he got me thinking the right way to make putts,” Amato said. “Now I have to forget about today and stay in the present.”

            Woods, the niece of former AJGA Player of the Year and current PGA Tour star Tiger Woods, said consistency was the reason she was able to post the day’s low round.

            “I had a birdie at No. 4 but three-putted No. 8 to drop me to even,” said Woods, who is playing in just her second AJGA tournament. “I was really consistent on the back-nine.”

            All players battled a course made difficult by thick rough and gusty winds, which put a premium on accuracy from tee to green.

            “The wind was really a factor today,” Hoffmann said. “But some people do play better in this kind of weather.”

The American Junior Golf Association is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf.  The AJGA has a membership (boys and girls ages 12-18) of approximately 5,000 junior golfers from 50 states and 30 foreign countries. 

Titleist, the AJGA’s National Sponsor, has been the catalyst and driving force behind the Association’s success since 1989. Rolex Watch USA, a supporter of the AJGA since 1983, became the inaugural AJGA Premier Partner in 2004.
