COLVIN FIRES 68 TO LEAD BOYS DIVISION AT FOX HILLS

Meier leads Girls Division by one stroke

 

Mishicot, Wis. – Andrew Colvin of Longwood, Fla., fired a 4-under-par 68 to lead the Boys Division by one stroke at the Nike Golf Junior at Fox Hills on Tuesday.  Christine Meier of Rochester Hills, Mich., took control of the Girls Division with a 3-over-par 75.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Nike Golf Junior at Fox Hills is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at Fox Hills Resort – The National course. The tournament features 68 boys and 19 girls from 22 states and Mexico. The Nike Golf Junior All-Star series allows players ages 12-15 to develop their skills and earn entry into other AJGA tournaments.

Colvin’s round featured 34s on both the front and back sides with one eagle, four birdies and only two bogeys.  The 15-year-old felt he played consistently and was especially pleased with his short game and putting.

“I felt pretty confident on the greens and my irons were working,” Colvin said.  “Overall I did not make many mistakes and felt really good out there.”

Colvin’s strong short game was particularly evident on the par-5s.  On No. 15 he hit his approach shot from 190 yards out to just off the green and drained the putt for eagle.  It was his sixth hole of the day and boosted his confidence for the rest of the round.  Colvin dominated the three remaining par-5s, carding birdies on each.

In second place, one stroke off the lead, is Juan Pablo Hernandez of Mexico City, Mexico, with a 3-under-par 69.  Anthony Aicher of Wausau, Wis., stands alone in third place with a 2-under-par 70 and Cory Whitsett of Houston is in fourth place after carding a 1-under par 71.  Jordan McLaurin of Ironton, Mo., and Cale Atteberry of Forsyth, Ill., are tied for fifth place with rounds of even-par 72.

In the Girls Division, Meier’s 75 consisted of a 40 on the front nine and a 35 on the back side.  The 13-year-old was satisfied with her performance on the course, particularly on and around the greens.

“My putting and irons were really strong,” Meier said.  “I feel like I played solidly overall, but those were really working.”

Meier had some difficulty off the tee on the front nine, but was able to settle herself as she made the turn to the back side.  On No. 15, she drained a putt from 20 feet for her first birdie of the day.  She carded pars on every other hole on the back nine and made two solid shots on the par-5 No. 18 to make par after a wild tee shot.  Meier said making the par ended her round on a good note and gives her confidence heading into Wednesday’s second round.

Tied for second place are Shannon Warner of Livonia, Mich., and Kaira Martin of Paradise Valley, Ariz., with 4-over-par 76s.
