Shin breaks par at Heather Farr Classic presented by Longbow Golf Club

MESA, Ariz. — Jeff Wibawa of Encino, Calif., fired a 3-under-par 68 Friday at the Heather Farr Classic presented by Longbow Golf Club to claim the first-round lead. In the Girls Division, Jenny Shin of Torrance, Calif., was the only contender to shoot under par, thus claiming the lead with a 1-under-par 70.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Heather Farr Classic presented by Longbow Golf Club is a 54-hole stroke play event held at Longbow Golf Club. The tournament field represents 96 boys and 48 girls, ages 12-18, from 14 states and three foreign countries. Twenty Rolex Junior All-Americans are featured in the field. The Boys Division is playing the par-71 course at 7,001 yards, while the Girls Division is playing the course at 6,150 yards.

An inauspicious beginning to Wibawa's day, a double bogey on his first hole, did not hinder the 16-year-old for long. A birdie on No. 2 was the first of five for Wibawa and he did not record anything above par for the rest of his round. Making the turn at even-par 35, Wibawa went under par with a birdie on No. 10 and never looked back.

“Other than my first hole, I played it safe and didn't make unnecessary mistakes,” the high school junior said. “My driver has really been working well for me today and tomorrow I just want to put it in the fairway.”

Wibawa's driver wasn't the only thing working well for him, as evidenced by a 30-foot putt for birdie on the par-4 No. 14.

Following Wibawa in a four-way tie for second, each carding a 2-under-par 69, are Alberto Sanchez of Nogales, Ariz., Chien Yao Hung of Taipei City, Taiwan, Mario Clemens of Beverly Hills, Calif., and James Back of Cerritos, Calif.

Also of note in the Boys Division was a 179-yard hole-in one by Scottsdale native Austin Quick on the par-3 No.3.

Shin's round was the picture of consistency, as she carded 7 pars on the front nine, trading bogey for birdie once. Her birdies on Nos. 10 and 14 kept her under par, and despite her a bogey on the par-5 No. 15 she maintained the lead through the round.

“I knew I was going to have a good day on No. 10,” Shin said. “I hit my shot well, but the wind picked up and it went to the back of the green and then I made my putt.”

Behind Shin in a three-way tie for second, each with an 1-over-par 72 are Kimberly Kim of Hilo, Hawaii, Alison Lee of Valencia, Calif., and defending champion Kyung Kim of Chandler, Ariz.
