HU STAYS ATOP LEADERBOARD AT HP BOYS JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Four tied for second place as field remains tight

ORLANDO, Fla. — Mu Hu of Shen Zhen, China, fired a 2-under-par 70 Wednesday to stay atop the leaderboard of the HP Boys Junior Championship with a two-day total of 4-under-par 140. Four players are two strokes back of Hu tied for second place, while 10 other players remain within four strokes of the lead after the second round.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the HP Boys Junior Championship is a 72-hole stroke play event being held at Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Club & Lodge. The 76-player field features players from 24 states, Taiwan, China and South Korea. The par-72 course is being played at 7,189 yards for the tournament. The field was cut to the low 40 players and ties after Wednesday's second round.

Hu maintained his lead despite not feeling as confident as he did Tuesday.

“I don't know, I was a little bit nervous out there today,” Hu said. “I was definitely not feeling it as well today.”

Hu contributed some of that feeling to tweaking his injured wrist after hitting a shot on No. 4 early in his round.

“It bothered me a little bit but I was putting better than yesterday, so that helped me out since I was being conservative with my wrist on the other shots,” Hu said. “I just need to rest the wrist this afternoon. I'll be fine tomorrow.”

Tied for second place behind Hu are Wesley Graham of Port Orange, Fla., Patrick Reed of Baton Rouge, La., Joseph Barr of Versailles, Ky., and Scott Langley of St. Louis, who all ended up with two-day totals of 2-under-par 142.

Graham, who has two top-10 finishes in 2007, fired a 5-under-par 67 Wednesday, the low of the tournament through two rounds.

“I've been at or near the top of the leaderboard through a lot of tournaments,” Graham said. “I knew I would break through eventually at a big one.”

Graham contributed his score to putting well and keeping his other shots consistent.

“I hit the ball the same as yesterday but I putted much better, I really didn't hit any bad shots today,” Graham said. “Whenever I putt good I score well. Every time I have putted well in a round I've ended up with a great score.”

Jae Han Chun of Ansung-City, South Korea, Sang Yi of Carrollton, Texas, and Bo Andrews of Raleigh, N.C., are all tied for sixth with two-day totals of 1-under-par 143.
