CLARK LEADS HEADING INTO FINAL ROUND AT JUNIOR ALL-STAR AT ASPEN
Alonso ahead by 12 strokes at Aspen Golf Club

ASPEN, Colo. — Wyndham Clark of Greenwood Village, Colo., sits alone atop of the leaderboard in the Boys Division at the Junior All-Star at Aspen. Moving him out of a first-round tie for the lead at 4-under-par with Charlie Saxon of Tulsa, Okla. Regina Alonso of Huixquilucan, Mexico, has a commanding lead after Wednesday's second round with a 3-over-par 147.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Junior All-Star at Aspen is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at Aspen Golf Club. The tournament field consists of 57 boys and 17 girls, ages 12 to 15, from 15 states, Canada and Mexico. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 6,836 yards, while the Girls Division is playing the course at 6,042 yards.

With wind gusting to 30 mph Wednesday at Aspen Golf Club it was difficult for players to make a club selection. Clark was confident from the start, knowing he belonged at the top of the field after the first round. With two rounds in the books, Clark is at 4-under-par with scores of 68-72—140. He knew club selection would be the key to low scores today.

“I just had to adapt to my surroundings, a lot of holes where I would normally hit driver I chose a different club today,” Clark said. “That's where I should be [in first place].”

Marcel Puyat of Bradenton, Fla., is in second at even-par 144. Tied for third are Christopher Ingham of Pinecrest, Fla., and Saxon at 1-over-par 145. Patrick Grimes of Palo Alto, Calif., rounds out the top five, at 2-over-par 146.

Alonso was all business in the Girls Division extending her lead by five strokes from the first round. She began the day off the 10th tee carding a 3-over-par 39 that included a birdie on the par-5 fifteenth. Alonso finished the round sharp at even-par 36 on the front nine including two birdies.

“You play to improve everyday.” Alonso said. “Today I improved on hitting the greens, tomorrow I'll improve on my putting. My goal is to break par.”

Moving into second place in the Girls Division is Michelle Butler of Dunedin, Fla., at a 15-over-par 159 for the tournament. Janie Jackson of Huntsville, Ala., Michele Chun of Chino Hills, Calif., Sara Detlefsen of Eagan, Minn., and Catherine Herrera of Houston are tied for third at 18-over-par 162.
