SHAW FIRES 67 ON HOME COURSE TO LEAD OSSO JUNIOR AT OAK TREE
Reeves leads Girls Division after first round

EDMOND, Okla. β€” Edmond native Geoffrey Shaw carded a 3-under-par 67 to sit atop the Boys Division leaderboard Tuesday after the first round of the OSSO Junior at Oak Tree. In the Girls Division, Crystal Reeves of Broken Arrow, Okla., shot an opening-round 3-over-par 73 for the lead.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the OSSO Junior at Oak Tree is a 54-hole, stroke play event being held at the Oak Tree Country Club β€” East Course. The 144-player field features juniors from 16 states and Canada. The course is being played at 7,036 yards for the Boys Division and 5,751 yards for the Girls Division.

Shaw, who finished second at the Rand Graphics-Wildcat Golf Wichita Junior Championship two weeks ago and fourth at this event last year, was under-par on both sides of the course, shooting 33 and 34, respectively.

β€œMy putting was working well for me today,” Shaw said. β€œI'm glad I could get out and get a good start early.”

Shaw was on track for an even better day, being 5-under after chipping in for birdie on No. 15, but ran into trouble with bogeys on Nos. 16 and 17. He fought back to finish with a solid par on No. 18 to end the day on a positive note.

β€œI had a couple bad shots there and I don't care who you are, No. 17 is just tough,” Shaw said. β€œIf I can putt as well as I did today that would be great for the rest of the week.”

Behind Shaw in second place is Nathan Chambers of Purcell, Okla., with an 2-under-par 68. William Kropp of Edmond, Okla., and Talor Gooch of Midwest City, Okla., are tied for third after carding 1-under-par 69s. Scott Willman of Prairie Village, Kan., is in fifth with an even-par 70.

Reeves sits on top of the Girls Division after finishing the day with three birdies, four bogeys and a double bogey. She is looking for her first top finish in an AJGA event.

β€œToday was a little rough, I wasn't hitting the ball like I was all week,” Reeves said. β€œI was missing greens like crazy.”

She said she will look for some improvement in her short game as she continues on through the next two rounds.

β€œIt was an up and down kind of day,” Reeves said. β€œI just want to come out of [a round] and feel like I played well.”

Emma Lavy of Fayetteville, Ark., and Gina Bortoletto of The Woodlands, Texas, are tied for second behind Reeves with 4-over-par 74s.
