TPC Craig Ranch
McKinney, Texas • April 7 - 9
 

UIHLEIN SHOOTS 7-UNDER TO TAKE LEAD AT CRAIG RANCH
Karle leads Girls Division by 10 strokes

MCKINNEY, Texas — Amidst a wild Texas wind, Peter Uihlein of Bradenton, Fla., shot 67 in the morning and 70 in the afternoon to lead after the first day at the AJGA Craig Ranch Junior. In the Girls Division Taylore Karle of Scottsdale, Ariz., led with a 71 after the first round, then came back with a 67 to end the day 10 strokes ahead of the pack.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association the Craig Ranch Junior is being held at the Tournament Players Club at Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas. The tournament field consists of 51 boys and 21 girls from 17 states, Canada, Chile and China. There are 28 residents from the state of Texas. The field also includes 17 Rolex Junior All-Americans, including four first-team All-American boys.

Uihlein eagled his ninth hole of the second round, the par-5, 550-yard No. 18. He then drained two birdie putts in the next seven holes to roll to a 34-36 — 70 second round.

“I played a smart round,” said Uihlein. “I made a lot of putts and drove the ball well.

“Tomorrow I just can't overpower it,” said Uihlein. “There are so many birdie holes, I just have to play smart again.”

Philip Francis of Scottsdale, Ariz., shot a first-round 70, followed by a 4-under-par 68 to finish in second. Kyle Stanley of Gig Harbor, Wash., trails Francis by two strokes with a 71-69 — 140. Jordan Cook of Edmond, Okla., was tied for the lead with a first-round 67, but shot a 75 in the second round, to wind up tied for fourth. San Antonio, Texas, native Will Griffin also shot a 142 to put him in fourth with Cook, following the first two rounds of play.

Karle shot a first-round 71, then came back after the break to shoot a 5-under-par 67. Karle eagled No. 9, hitting a driver off the tee, followed by a 6-iron to 12 feet on the 472-yard, par-5.

“I'm confident following my first two rounds,” said Karle. “I felt like I played the same on both rounds, but due to the weather, the only difference was the score.”

Lila Barton of Dallas, Texas, shot a second-round 73 to finish in second with a 148 and Calle Nielson of Nashville, Tenn., is just two behind Barton with 150. Barton had three birdies for the day and Nielson shot an even 36 on the back nine of the second round.
