BARR, PRESSEL HOLD LEADS HEADING INTO FINAL ROUND AT AJGA KROGER JUNIOR INVITATIONAL
Bowen ties course record with 4-under 67

BATAVIA, Ohio--Cale Barr of Versailles, Ky., fired a 3-under-par 68 Wednesday to grab the Boys Division lead heading into the final round of the AJGA Kroger Junior Invitational. Morgan Pressel of Boca Raton, Fla., jumped to the top of the leaderboard in the Girls Division after carding a 1-over-par 72, putting her two strokes ahead of Moah Chang of Los Angeles, Calif.

The 54-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being held at the par-71 Elks Run Golf Club. The field features 99 players, representing 16 states and Canada, including 41 juniors from Ohio.

Barr got things going with his first birdie of the tournament on No. 5 by rolling in a 10-foot putt. The 16-year-old then connected on another birdie on the 400 yard, par-4 ninth to get back to even-par for the tournament and make the turn at 2-under 34. After a bogey on No. 10, Barr got hot with his irons, sticking two consecutive approaches to within two feet of the hole and tapping in for back-to-back birdies.

"I hit a lot of greens today and played solid," said Barr, who hit 17 of 18 greens in regulation. "The biggest turning points of my round were the birdies on Nos. 11 and 12. That got everything started."

Barr holds a two-stroke lead heading into the final round and is seeking his first career AJGA title after a second-place finish at the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational earlier this year.

Dublin, Ohio, natives Chris Wilson and Joel Kraner are tied for second at 143 while Brad Marek of Arlington Heights, Ill., and Blake Moore of Monrovia, Calif., sit in a tie for fourth at 144, three shots back of Barr.

Drew Bowen of Monroe, Ga., tied the course record with a 4-under-par 67 and sits in a tie for eighth. Bowen started early with an eagle on the 513 yard, par-5 third hole and added birdies on Nos. 7, 12, 13, 17, and 18 to complete his record-tying performance.

In the Girls Division, Pressel used a strong front nine to post the low round of the day. The 13-year-old carded two birdies on the front nine with a short birdie putt on No. 3 and a 20-footer for birdie on No. 9 for a 1-under 35.

"I started well today and played the front a lot better than I did yesterday," Pressel said. "I'm happy with my round today and it's good to have the lead going into the final round."

Pressel carded a 2-over-par 37 on the back nine to finish with a two-day total of 145, two strokes ahead of Chang, who shot a 2-over 73. Carling Coffing of Middleton, Ohio, sits in third place at 74-74--148.

"I need another good, solid round tomorrow," Pressel said. "It would be nice to get my first AJGA win here this week."

Final-round action begins Thursday morning at 8 a.m. off the No. 1 and 10 tees. For more information regarding the AJGA Kroger Junior Invitational or other AJGA events, please contact tournament headquarters at (513) 735-6600 ext. 12.
