MAGUIRE'S 5-UNDER-PAR 65 GIVES HIM FIRST ROUND LEAD AT FOOTJOY INVITATIONAL
Four players tied at 4-under-par 66

GREENSBORO, N.C. — M.J. Maguire, a rising high-school junior from St. Petersburg, Fla., carded a 5-under-par 65 to take the lead after the first round of the eighth-annual FootJoy Invitational. There are also four players tied for second at 4-under-par heading into Wednesday's second round.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the FootJoy Invitational is a 72-hole stroke play event being held at Sedgefield Country Club. The 99-player field features golfers from 25 states and 10 foreign countries. The field includes 28 players who have already signed National Letters of Intent to play in college as well as 25 Rolex Junior All-Americans. Home of the PGA's Wyndham Championship, the par-70 course is being played at 7,118 yards. Past champions of this event include Brian Harman, Daniel Woltman, Andrew Yun, Peter Uihlein and Cameron Peck.

While his only bogey came on the first hole, Maguire finished his front nine four birdies and carded two more back-nine birdies on Nos. 15 and 18.

“I got off to a shaky start, but I knew I could come back,” Maguire said. “I got up and down when I needed to, made all the putts I had to, and in the end played well.”

Maguire is currently ranked No. 51 in the Polo Golf Rankings and has had an exceptional start to his 2009 season. He has finished in the top five at his two previous AJGA events this year - the AJGA Cliffs Championship and the Mizuno Junior at Innisbrook.

“Having a couple good rounds under par or around par has helped give me the confidence that I can do it,” Maguire said.

Right behind Maguire is a four-way tie between of Rak Cho of Brea, Calif., Jordan Spieth of Dallas, Mario Clemens of Beverly Hills, Calif., and Ian McConnell of Riverview, Fla., who each carded a 4-under-par 66. In all, 23 players finished their first round under par.
