FOOTJOY BOYS INVITATIONAL
Forest Oaks Country Club
Greensboro, N.C. • June 13 - 17
 

WOLTMAN CATCHES GALLETTI, JR. TO SHARE LEAD
Cox jumps from 21st to fourth with round-low 7-under-par 65 at FootJoy Boys Invitational

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Roberto Galletti, Jr. of Clayton, Calif., appeared to be running away with the lead at the FootJoy Boys Invitational this week, but went 3-over-par in the third round to finish tied for the lead with Daniel Woltman of Beaver Dam, Wis., at 10-under-par 206.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the FootJoy Boys Invitational is being held at the Forest Oaks Country Club, home to the PGA TOUR's Chrysler Classic of Greensboro. For the championship, the course plays to 7,187 yards, just 53 yards less than the PGA TOUR distance. Ninety-nine junior golfers from 23 states and three countries, including China, Peru and Australia, are competing in the 72-hole event. Thirty-nine Rolex Junior All-Americans are in the field.

Galletti, Jr. said a triple bogey on No. 6 and a strong breeze made play more difficult.

“I'm kind of disappointed. I was playing well, but had a bad lie in the bunker,” he said. “Tomorrow, I'll just try not to make stupid mistakes and try to stay focused.”

Turning in a scorecard absent of bogeys, Woltman said the wind was tough, but was able to put himself in contention for the title.

“I'm excited about tomorrow. I've been too close too many times,” he said.

After bogeys on Nos. 4 and 10, Drew Younts of Stokesdale, N.C., sent his tee shot on No. 13 into the water, but was able to save par on the hole and finish the round at 1-over-par 73 and at 9-under-par 207 for the tournament.

“The wind blew constantly. It was a struggle all the way in,” he said. “I'm ready and if it's there tomorrow, it is; if not, I hope for a good, solid finish.”

Jordan Cox of Redwood City, Calif., said he did “nothing special” Thursday as he went 7-under-par for the third round of tournament to jump from 21st to fourth place scoring 73-70-65—208.

“The first round, I fired at every pin; the second round I played smarter and more conservative. Today, I played the same as the second round, except I hit more fairways and made more putts,” Cox said.

At the end of the third round, Marc Gladson of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is fifth with a 68-68-73—209. Tied for sixth are David Yujin Chung of Fayetteville, N.C., with a 73-70-68—211 and Brian Locke of Los Angeles, at 70-73-68—211. In eighth place are Lion Kim of Lake Mary, Fla., at 72-71-69—212, Daniel Lim of Cupertino, Calif., at 72-70-70—212 and Tom Glissmeyer of Colorado Springs, Colo., at 65-69-78—212.
