Johnson and Jonas Tied After First Round at AJGA Junior at Savannah Quarters
Yin leads Girls Division in AJGA debut at Savannah Quarters Country Club

POOLER, Ga. — Stanhope Johnson, Jr. of Greensboro, N.C., and John Jonas of Jacksonville, Fla., each fired a 2-under-par 70 to lead the Boys Division after the first round of play. Angel Yin, of Arcadia, Calif., leads the Girls Division by one stroke with her score of 2-over-par 74 the AJGA Junior at Savannah Quarters.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Junior at Savannah Quarters is a 36-hole stroke play competition held on the par-72 Savannah Quarters Country Club course. The course plays to 6,872 yards for the boys and 6,065 for the girls. The 78-player field features players from 23 states and 11 foreign countries.

A veteran to AJGA events, Johnson was aware of the level of competition surrounding him but was able to focus and meet his personal goal of five birdies.

“I knew I had to keep my putting and driving consistent, and I was definitely pleased with the results,” Johnson said. “My plan for tomorrow is to make even more birdies than I did today.”

Playing strong early in his round, Jonas was able to follow pars on Nos. 1 and 2 with a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 3.

“My birdie putt on No. 3 really kicked off my putting and started my game,” Jonas said. “My putting throughout the entire round was incredible after that.”

In a three-way tie for third in the Boys Division is Joshua Martin of Pinehurst, N.C., Cristobal Del Solar of Viña Del Mar, Chile, and Sean Bozuk of Burlington, Ontario, who all finished even-par 72.

In her first AJGA event, Yin fought through the nerves, wind and fast greens to come out on top in the Girls Division.

“I was really nervous at the level of competition I was going to face,” Yin said. “But I utilized all the clubs in my bag and had some great drives.”

In second place in the Girls Division is Rinko Mitsunaga of Roswell, Ga., who finished the first round with a 3-over-par 75. Rounding out the top three girls is Momo Sakuragi of Irvine, Calif., with a 4-over-par 76.
