Future Cowboy takes lead at The PING Invitational
Hahn finishes strong for one-shot lead in Girls Division at Karsten Creek

STILLWATER, Okla. — Wyndham Clark of Greenwood Village, Colo., came to the site of his future home course and posted the only under-par round after 18 holes of competition at The PING Invitational. Jenny Hahn of Henderson, Nev., holds a one-stroke lead in the Girls Division after a birdie on her final hole put her at 2-over-par 74 going into second-round play.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, The PING Invitational is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at Karsten Creek in Stillwater, Okla. The 72-player field features players from 21 states, Colombia, France, Thailand, China, South Korea, Sweden, Hong Kong and Mexico. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 layout at 7,388 yards, while the Girls Division is playing at 6,291 yards.

Clark, who has verbally committed to Oklahoma State, came out strong in the first round by carding a 3-under-par 69 despite winds that clocked close to 30 mph.

“I got off to a great start with a birdie on No. 1 but then had an unfortunate bogey on the second hole,” Clark said. “I hit a great shot on No. 3 for another birdie and then just found my rhythm and hit a lot of greens.”

Turning at 3-under, Clark left a birdie putt on the lip of the 10th hole to make par. Birdies on Nos. 12 and 13 gave him a temporary six-stroke lead but bogeys on Nos. 14 and 16 set him back down the stretch, still providing a comfortable four-shot lead heading into a predicted wet second round.

Vincent Martino of Southlake, Texas, sits tied for second with North Augusta, S.C., resident and No. 9-ranked Matthew NeSmith who each shot a 1-over-par 73. Taylor Moore of Edmond, Okla., Motin Yeung of Orlando, Fla., and AJ McInerney of Henderson, Nev., all share a tie for fourth with 2-over-par 74.

Hahn, who began the summer with her first AJGA victory at the PING Phoenix Junior, is looking to end a solid year with the same result.

“It would be amazing to sweep the PING events this year,” Hahn, currently ranked No. 21 in the Polo Golf Rankings, said. “This is my first time at Karsten Creek and the last year I can play this event.”

The Vanderbilt-committed high school senior began her day with a double bogey on No. 10 but ended on a high note with a birdie on No. 9.

“I hit an awful shot on No. 10 and I thought it was going to be a long day from there,” Hahn said. “I've had a lot of moments like that where I had a bad hole and just have to brush it off and just move on, which is what I did. I just made my birdies when I had my opportunities.”

Three sit one stroke shy of Hahn, including three-time Rolex Junior All-American Kyung Kim of Chandler, Ariz., Shannon Aubert of France, and Allisen Corpuz of Honolulu. PING Junior Solheim Cup members Karen Chung of Livingston, N.J., and Jaye Marie Green of Boca Raton, Fla., share a tie for fifth, two strokes off Hahn's pace.

Second-round tee times run 8-9:50 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at Karsten Creek. For more information on The PING Invitational, please contact AJGA Tournament Headquarters at (405) 533-8181.
