Beers fires 72 for lead after second-round

GREENSBORO, N.C.-- Roberto Castro fired a 1-under-par 69 and beat a one-hour, 16-minute weather delay to grab a three-shot lead in the Boys Division after the second round of the AJGA Greater Greensboro Chrysler Junior at The Cardinal Golf & Country Club. Jackie Beers leads the Girls Division at 8-over-par 148.

The 54-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 102 players representing 18 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada, including 36 North Carolina natives.

Castro, a native of Alpharetta, Ga., was 1-over-par on the front nine. After a birdie on No. 1, Castro ran into trouble on No. 2, hitting his drive out-of-bounds, but he managed to salvage a bogey. He then bogeyed No. 9, but birdied Nos. 10 and 11 to get to 1-under for his round. He is 1-over-par (141) for the tournament after shooting a 72 on Tuesday.

"I hit it pretty well today," Castro said. "I only missed two greens. The pins were a little more accessible.

"My short game saved me today. I only missed one up-and-down."

The 15-year-old Castro, an Honorable Mention Polo Golf Junior All-American last season, said the course provides a stern test for the players.

"This is the hardest course I've ever played," Castro said of the par-70 layout. "The greens are small, and the hazards are placed where you are going to miss your shots."

Andrew Medley (72-72) of Athens, Ala., and Kyle Metzler (70-74) of Rancho Murieta, Calif., are three shots back at 144 (+4). Webb Simpson (75-70) of Raleigh, N.C., and Brett Stegmaier of Madison, Conn., are in fourth at 145.

Beers, a native of Midlothian, Va., carded a 2-over-par 72 today en route to a four-shot lead after the second round.

Beers was even-par through seven holes, but a double-bogey on No. 8 put her at 2-over through the front nine. She got back to even-par with a birdie on No. 13, but another double-bogey on No. 14 dropped her to 2-over. She managed to play even the rest of the round for a 72.

"I didn't hit too many greens," Beers said. "I hit a couple of long birdie putts, but I need to eliminate the double-bogeys."

Beers played three holes before the weather delay.

"It didn't really have an effect on me. It was just like starting over," said Beers.

Andrea Vander Lende of Longwood, Fla., and Kelly Froelich of Wesley Chapel, Fla., are tied for second at 152.

Final-round action begins Thursday morning at 7:30 a.m. For more information about the AJGA Greater Greensboro Chrysler Junior, please contact tournament headquarters at (336) 668-2746 ext. AJGA.
