Providence Forge, Va. • August 18 - 21

Park leads by one stroke at The Tradition Golf Club at Royal New Kent

PROVIDENCE FORGE, Va. β€” Bo Andrews, 18, of Raleigh, N.C., and Daniel Walker, 17, of Earlysville, Va., posted 2-under-par 70s to tie for the Boys Division lead after Tuesday's opening round of play at the CNL Lifestyle Company Junior Championship. Annie Park, 13, of Levittown, N.Y., shot a 1-under-par 71 to top the Girls Division leaderboard.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the CNL Lifestyle Company Junior Championship features 99 players from 16 states and two foreign countries. The field consists of 75 boys and 24 girls, ages 12-18. The Boys Division is playing The Tradition Golf Club at Royal New Kent as a par-72 at 6,983 yards while the Girls Division is playing the course at 6,058 yards.

Andrews played a solid round of golf, carding three birdies and only one bogey on the par-4 eighth hole. Andrews credited his play to positive mentality while playing the very demanding Tradition Golf Club at Royal New Kent.

β€œYou need to not be negative out there,” Andrews said. β€œI kept a positive attitude. I thought about where I wanted my shot to go rather than worried about where I didn't want it to go.”

Walker managed his game well, keeping his tee shots out of the long grass that plagued many players. His round was highlighted by a near hole-out for eagle on the par-5 fifth hole.

β€œI limited my mistakes today,” Walker said. β€œWhenever I hit a squirrely shot I rebounded well on the next one.”

Ben Heisey of New Bern, N.C., and Allan Day of Midlothian, Va., are tied for third after carding rounds of 1-under-par 71. Rounding out the top five is Jeremy Wells of Hopewell, Va., at even-par 72.

In the Girls Division, Park set herself up well by hitting 13 fairways. After a chip-in birdie on No. 6, Park's approach shot on No. 8 led to a tap-in birdie.

β€œI had a blind second shot on No. 8,” Park said. β€œI just hit it around the hill and hoped that I would get it on the green and it wound up lipping out for eagle.”

Jennifer Kirby of Paris, Ontario, and Casey Ann Kennedy of Venice, Fla., are tied for second, just one stroke back, after shooting even-par 72s.
