TRAVIS GRABS LEAD WITH OPENING-ROUND 74
Carr and James Share First in Girls Division

MENDON, N.Y.- Rick Travis of Dublin, Ohio, recorded a 3-over-par 74 Saturday to take the opening-round lead at the Medicus Preseason Junior at Rochester presented by Wegmans LPGA and Xerox Classic. Darlea Carr of Pinehurst, N.C., and Augusta James of Tamworth, Ontario, each carded opening-rounds of 7-over-par 78 to lead the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Medicus Preseason Junior at Rochester presented by Wegmans LPGA and Xerox Classic is a 36-hole stroke play event being held at The Country Club of Mendon. The 84-player field features players from 17 states and Canada. The course is playing at 6,541 yards for the Boys Division and 5,838 yards for the Girls Division.

Travis pointed to his birdie on the par-3 seventh as the pivotal point of his round.

“I made a good putt coming off of a bogey, that helped stop the bleeding,” Travis said.

He carried that momentum over to the back nine where he shot even-par 36 to finish his round at 3-over-par 74.

“I just need to stay focused on my game and not worry about what I can't control,” said Travis.

Kramer Hickok of Plano, Texas, is alone in second place after a round of 5-over-par 76. Jamison Sindelar of Horseheads, N.Y., Jake Lebowitz of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., Kurt Voss of Rochester, N.Y., David Hutchinson of Beaver, Pa., Mills Rendell of Winnetka, Ill., and Chip Culp of Philadelphia, Pa., are tied for third at 6-over-par 77.

In the Girls Division, Darlea Carr and Augusta James are tied for the lead following rounds of 7-over-par 78. Carr got off to a great start, making birdie on No. 3 to shoot 1-over-par on the front nine. However she stuggled on the back nine, opening with a double bogey on No. 10.

“The greens are a bit bigger on the back, which led to some three-putts. I need to work on my lag putting,” she said.

Augusta James thrived on the back nine, shooting 1-over par 37. She looked back to her first birdie of the day on No. 11 as the boost that she needed to finish her round strong. James stressed the need to work on her short game heading into the final round.

“I wasn't really hitting many chips close, so I wasn't able to get those up and downs, but hopefully I'll be able to capitalize on that tomorrow,” she said.

Annie Park of Elmhurst, N.Y., Brittany Rendell of Winnetka, Ill., and Brittany Weddell of Buzzards Bay, Mass., are tied for third after opening-rounds of 12-over-par 83.
