HENRIQUES TAKES FIRST-ROUND LEAD IN BOYS DIVISION AT HOT SPRINGS

Ingram Leading Girls Division

 

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Nuno Henriques of Bradenton, Fla., fired six birdies in the first round of the Ashworth Junior at Hot Springs to lead the Boy’s Division of the tournament with a 2-under-par 70.  Leading the Girls Division at 2-over-par 74 is

17-year-old Kristin Ingram of Pasadena, Calif. 


The second-annual Ashworth Junior at Hot Springs is a 36-hole stroke-play event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Hot Springs Country Club’s Majestic Course.  The tournament includes 96 boy and girl junior golfers, ages 12-18, from 21 states and Canada. It is the first Ashworth Preseason event to feature both male and female juniors. 

               
The AJGA’s Ashworth Junior Series is a series designed specifically for first-time AJGA members or those members who have not yet participated in an AJGA Open event, AJGA Invitational or Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series event in the current calendar year and/or the previous calendar year.


Henriques began his round with a bogey on No. 1, but quickly reversed his fortune with a birdie on No. 2.  The 16-year-old played the next three holes even and sunk a 12-foot putt for birdie on No. 6.  Henriques then birdied No. 9 to finish out the front nine at 1-under-par 35.


The junior later carded back-to-back birdies on Nos. 12 and 13 which led to a 1-under-par 35 on the back nine as well.


“I two-putted both par-5s on the back nine for birdies,” said Henriques.  “The greens are a little fast, but I putted pretty well today.”


One stroke behind Henriques after the first round with a 1-under-par 71 is Kevin Kring of Springfield, Mo.  The 14-year-old parred every hole on the front nine, but mixed it up on the back nine with two bogies and three birdies.  Kring credited his short game as the key to his success in the first round. 


“I hit my approach shots within 15 or 20 feet of every hole and was able to read the breaks,” said Kring.  “Usually my putts burn the edge, but they went in today.”   


In third place after the first round with an even par 72 is Alex Martin of Middletown, Ohio, and sitting in fourth place at 1-over-par 73 is Todd Heinz of Collierville, Tenn.  Sean Madgett of Sammamish, Wash., Neil Phelps of Benton, Ark., Andrew Yun of University Place, Wash., and Alex Wagner of Saint Charles, Ill., are tied for fifth place at 2-over-par 74.


In the Girls Division, Kristin Ingram carded a 39 on the front nine and a 35 on the back to finish the first round at 2-over-par 74.  Ingram hit her drive on No. 12 into the water, but after taking relief she was able to hit a 3-wood near the green enabling her to get up and down for par.  Ingram also made a notable 40-foot downhill putt on No. 17 for birdie.


“I am impressed with how I played today.  I kept focused when I got into trouble and then put it behind me, and moved on,” said Ingram. 


Tiffany Lua of Rowland Heights, Calif., sits one stroke behind Ingram at 3-over-par 75.  The 13-year-old carded a 40 on the front nine and a 1-under-par 35 on the back nine.  Lua birdied No. 12 and then hit a shot out of the trees on to the green and made a 30-foot putt to birdie the par-4 16th hole.


Rounding out the top three for the Girls Division is Rachel Ingram of Jonesborough, Tenn.  Ingram is in third place three strokes behind the leader with a 5-over-par 77.


The final round of the Ashworth Junior at Hot Springs will begin with an 8 a.m. shotgun start Sunday morning.
