Lee takes lead at ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior
Yin battles heat and field for lead at Mission Hills Country Club

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — With temperatures exceeding 110 degrees, John Lee of Los Alamitos, Calif., carded a 4-under-par 68 to take sole possession of the lead at Mission Hills Country Club on day one of the tournament. Twelve-year-old Angel Yin of Arcadia, Calif., shot a 3-under-par 69 to take the lead after day one of the ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior.

The ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The tournament field features 54 boys and 24 girls from seven states and two countries. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 7,101 yards and the Girls Division is playing at 6,177 yards.

Lee started off strong by eagling No. 2. He continued his strong play by birdying Nos. 9, 11 and 18.

“I was solid all day; all my birdies came on par-5s,” Lee said. “I got out from the par-3s one-over, my goal was to just stay even on the par-3s but I just lost a shot on one. It was a good day overall.”

John Davenport of Newport Beach, Calif., shot a 2-under-par 70 and is in second place. Angelo Jose Gandionco of Cebu City, Philippines and Alex Angard of Encino, Calif., are tied for third by carding 1-under-par 71s. Mark Jensma of Aliso Viejo, Calif., Connor Campbell of Seal Beach, Calif., and Shane Wathanasaynee of Cerritos, Calif., are tied for fifth with even-par 72s.

In the Girls Division, the youngest player in the field, Yin tied her career low by carding a 69. Yin also lead after day one of the PING Phoenix Junior with the same score.

She fired five birdies on the day, but also carded two bogeys during the round.

“My ball striking was pretty good today and I hit a lot of greens,” Yin said. “I'm going to change my strategy a little and try and shoot the same score or par. I'm not going to think too much and I'm just going to go out there and play.”

Andrea Lee of Hermosa Beach, Calif., is in second place after shooting 1-under-par 71. Tiffany Yau of Porter Ranch, Calif., Brittany Mai of Poway, Calif., and Lucianne Lee of Torrance, Calif., are tied for third after even-par 72.
