Smith shoots 2-under-par 69 to lead at Château Élan
Sojo leads Girls Division at TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior All-Star at Château Élan

BRASELTON, Ga. — Connor Smith of Hoover, Ala., fired a 2-under-par 69 in the first round of the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior All-Star at Château Élan to lead the Boys Division by one stroke. In the Girls Division, Laura Sojo of Barranquilla, Colombia, recorded a 1-over-par 72 to claim the first-round lead.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior All-Star at Château Élan is a 54-hole stroke play competition held on the par-71 Château Course at Château Élan. The course is playing to 6,654 yards for the boys and 5,745 for the girls. The 132-player field features players from 25 states and 10 foreign countries.

The TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior All-Star at Château Élan is one of 10 events in the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy Junior All-Star Series. Specifically designed for boys and girls ages 12-15, the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy Junior All-Star Series presents opportunities for younger players to develop their skills and earn entry into AJGA Open tournaments.

Smith credits his strong play to his consistency, only missing one fairway and hitting 13 greens. His round featured four birdies, two of which were made back to back on Nos. 3 and 4. Smith will take home the Bridgestone Pole Position award, given to the player with the lowest first-round score.

“It means a lot to me to get the Bridgestone Pole Position Award,” Smith said. “I've never gotten an award for a low round and it would give me some confidence for tomorrow.”

Sitting in second behind Smith is Ross Robison of Wilmington, N.C., with a 1-under-par 70. Tied for third are Alejandro Lopez of Boca Del Rio, Mexico, and David Kocher of Charlotte, N.C., each posting even-par 71.

Sojo, playing in her first AJGA tournament, found her groove on the Château Course's par-3 holes, going three under par on the four holes.

“This is my first AJGA tournament, so I am happy and honored to be leading after the first round, “ Sojo said. “I putted really well and made three birdies in a row on Nos. 6-8.”

Tied for second one stroke behind Sojo are Jessica Hoang of North Augusta, S.C., and Taylor Tomlinson of Gainesville, Fla.
