SCHOVEE TAKES BOYS DIVISION LEAD AFTER SECOND ROUND AT FUTURE LEGENDS

Katahira leads Girls Division at 8-over-par 150 at The Legend at Brandybrook

WALES, Wisc. —  Matthew Schovee of Cherry Hills Village, Colo., carded an even-par 71 Thursday for a two-day total of 5-over-par 147 to lead the Boys Division after the second round of the Future Legends at The Legend at Brandybrook. Mitsuki Katahira of Wheaton, Ill., recorded a 4-over-par 75 for the round and a two-day total of 8-over-par 150 to lead the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Future Legends is being held at The Legend at Brandybrook. The tournament field consists of 63 boys and 27 girls from 20 states and one foreign country. The Boys Division is playing the course at 6,836 yards, while the Girls Division is playing at 5,983 yards.

Schovee struggled on the front nine in Wednesday's first round with a 7-over-par 42, but came back Thursday with a 2-over-par 37. With a sense of momentum, Schovee went on to record back-to-back birdies on Nos. 10 and 11 to boost his confidence and continued to play well the remainder of the round. Schovee said his short game was working, landing him near the flagstick multiple times for five-foot-par putts. He commented that the greens are very tough, but knowing the right spots to land the ball helped his game. Playing in the leader boys group will be a first for Schovee as he enters Friday's final round.

“I am excited and nervous,” Schovee said. “I feel a lot of pressure because I've never been in this position before. I just want to concentrate on my game and play tomorrow like it's any other day.”

Vincent India of Deerfield, Ill., is in second after a round of 2-over-par 73 for a two-day total of 6-over-par 148. Alex Moen of Wheaton, Ill., and Cabe Prieskorn of Texarkana, Texas, tied for third at 9-over-par 151 for two days. Tied for fifth are Stewart Hagestad of Newport Beach, Calif., Joseph Rice, IV of Dunkirk, Md., and Troy Anderson of Paradise Valley, Ariz., at 10-over-par 152.

In the Girls Division, Katahira has played consistently, carding 4-over-par 75s for each round. Having learned a lot from yesterday, she was able to control her distances better even with the strong winds. She knows her chipping isn't strong, but her putting is saving her around the greens. Katahira has not recorded a three-putt through the first two rounds and hopes to keep the streak going.

“The course is hard and you need to hit the greens,” Katahira said. “I have kept it below the hole and have had great putts. If I hit the greens, my putter works well for me.”

After two rounds, Ani Gulugian of Irvine, Calif., sits in second for the Girls Division after a 9-over-par 80 for a two-day 11-over-par 153. Julie Yang of Phoenix, is in third at 16-over-par 158 after a 10-over-par 81 Thursday.
