RALEIGH, N.C., NATIVE IN LEAD AT ALDILA JUNIOR CLASSIC
Thompson and Yun tied for first in Girls Division

DURHAM, N.C. — After the first round of the Aldila Junior Classic, Bo Andrews of Raleigh, N.C., leads the Boys Division with a 2-under-par 70. Hannah Yun of Bradenton, Fla., and Alexis Thompson of Coral Springs, Fla., are tied for first in the Girls Division with 2-over-par 74s.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Aldila Junior Classic is a 36-hole stroke play event being held at Treyburn Country Club. The 84-player field features players from 20 states and Canada. The course is playing at 6,962 yards for the Boys Division and 6,218 for the Girls Division.

Coming into the tournament Andrews said he worked on his short game and wanted to keep his game consistent. His practice showed, as he made par on his first two holes. However on his third hole of the day, No. 12, he double bogeyed.

“After the double I needed to regroup,” Andrews said. “It seemed to help.”

Andrews then birdied back-to-back holes and only bogeyed one other hole the rest of the round for a 1-over-par 37 on the back nine and a 3-under-par 33 on the front nine.

“I just tried to hit the greens, and if it goes it goes,” he said. “Hopefully that can continue into tomorrow.”

Brinson Paolini of Virginia Beach, Va., and Ryan Sullivan of Winston-Salem, N.C., are tied for second with 1-under-par 71s. Anthony Aloi of Plainsboro, N.J., shot even-par 72 for the lone fourth spot while Daniel Meggs of Charlotte, N.C., Jake An of Centreville, Va., Lee Bedford of Cary, N.C., John Welden of Pilot Mountain, N.C., and Parker Houston of Greensboro, N.C., are all tied for fifth with 2-over-par 74s.

In the Girls Division, the rounds for Thompson and Yun were very different. Thompson struggled on the front nine, but her momentum started as she made the turn.

“No. 9 was the start of my birdies,” Thompson said.

After No. 9, Thompson birdied three holes on the back nine for a 2-under-par 34. Yun, on the other hand, started her round strong. She birdied her first two holes and one other hole for a 1-under-par 35 on the front nine.

“Birdies on my first two holes and my parents and I praying helped set the tone for the whole round,” Yun said.

Michelle Shin of Cape Coral, Fla., and Katrina Hegge of Seattle are tied for third with 3-over-par 75s.
