Kelly cards a 2-under-par 69 to claim lead at the Columbus Junior presented by the Memorial Tournament
Grogan leads the Girls Division by 4 strokes on the Scarlet Course

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Tee-k Kelly of Wheaton, Ill., posted a 2-under-par 69 on Tuesday at the Columbus Junior presented by the Memorial Tournament. In the Girls Division, Lauren Grogan of Columbus, Ohio, carded a 1-under-par 70 early in the day at The Ohio State University Golf Club — Scarlet Course.

The Columbus Junior presented by the Memorial Tournament is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at The Ohio State University Golf Club — Scarlet Course. The tournament field includes 72 boys and 24 girls, ages 12-18 from 17 states, Canada and Colombia. The Boys Division is playing the par-71 course at 6,992 yards and the Girls Division is playing at 6,062 yards.

Kelly started his day with a birdie on No. 1 and didn't look back. He made the turn following an even par 36 on the front nine and put together a pair of birdies and seven pars en route to his 2-under-par 69. Kelly feels confident in the way he's navigating the Scarlet Course and looks to stay on track over the next two days with his 2-shot lead.

“I never really was behind after birdying the first hole,” Kelly said. “I'm going to make sure I go through my same routine throughout the whole week so I don't get lost with where I'm at after the first round.”

Mert Selamet of Dublin, Ohio, Matthew Gerard of Rocky River, Ohio, Beau Titsworth of Avon Lake, Ohio, and Ben Cooley of Rydal, Pa., entered the clubhouse in a four-way tie for second after rounds of even par 71.

After an even par 36 on the front nine, Grogan was also able to card two birdies on the back nine and finish the day at 1-under-par 70. She looks to continue playing aggressive on a course that she considers to be challenging. Grogan will take a four shot lead into Wednesday's second round.

“I can't sit back and expect to coast through the next two days,” Grogan said. “People are going to post low scores and I need to play my own game and play it one shot at a time.”

Kendall Prince of Lake Oswego, Ore., finished the day in second place in the Girls Division following a 3-over-par 74. Elyse Smidinger of Crofton, Md., and Silvia Garces of Cali, Colombia, sit in a tie for third after posting rounds of 5-over-par 76.
