MALVERN, Pa. — Kristina Wong of Bradenton, Fla., and Erynne Lee of Silverdale, Wash., sit in a tie for first by one stroke at the McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls Championship. Wong and Lee each posted first round scores of 1-under-par 70 Tuesday.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls Championship is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at White Manor Country Club. The tournament field consists of 71 Girls, ages 12-18, from 16 states, Mexico and Canada. The par-71 course is being played at 6,292 yards.

Wong a 2008 first-team Rolex Junior All-American carded two birdies and only one bogey in the first round to enter the second round with a share of the lead.

“I played pretty solid and consistent the entire round,” Wong said. “On No. 10 I hit a good drive then hit my pitching wedge to the green to about eight feet to make a putt for birdie.”

Wong, who will be playing at Stanford in the fall, is competing in her last AJGA event.

“I am really sad but excited to go to Stanford, it has been great playing AJGA the past six years,” Wong said. “Words can't describe what a win for my last AJGA event would mean to me.”

Lee, also a 2008 first-team Rolex Junior All-American started out strong with a birdie on her first hole of the day, the 384 yard par-4 No. 1. She also posted a birdie on No. 5 to finish 2-under-par 33 on the front nine.

The Washington native also finished strong after dropping two birdies on her last two holes of the day.

“My putting was working for me,” Lee said. “On Nos. 17 and 18 I made 16-foot putts for birdies, which helped a lot. My iron shots were also accurate.”

This is Lee's first time at White Manor Country Club, which has been the host for the McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls Championship for the past five years.

“The venue is nice and the greens are really challenging,” Lee said. “I really like it here.”

Victoria Tanco of Bradenton, posted a first-round even-par 71 to enter the second round in third. Tied in fourth are Nicole Zhang of Calgary, Alberta, Maria Piccio of Bradenton, Alison Lee of Valencia, Calif., Ani Gulugian of Irvine, Calif., Rachel Morris of Carlsbad, Calif., and Kelly Shon of Port Washington, N.Y., with first round scores of 1-over-par 72.
