Otte III Leads After First Round of Laredo Energy Junior at Traditions
Erynne Lee jumps out to a three-shot lead at Traditions Golf Club at Texas A&M

BRYAN, Texas — Paul Otte III of Austin, Texas, shot an opening-round 2-under-par 70 Friday to take the lead by one stroke in the Boys Division at the Laredo Energy Junior at Traditions. Erynne Lee of Silverdale, Wash., fired a 3-under-par 69, giving her a three-stroke lead in the Girls Division.

The Laredo Energy Junior at Traditions is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the Traditions Golf Club at Texas A&M in Bryan, Texas. The tournament field boasts 89 boys and 42 girls, ages 12-18, from 21 states, Canada, Guatemala, South Africa and Mexico. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 7,000 yards and the Girls Division is playing at 6,159 yards. Following the second round, the tournament field will be cut to 45 boys and 21 girls, including ties.

Otte III, 18, had only one blemish on his card all day, finishing with three birdies and one bogey. Having played the Traditions Club at Texas A&M several times, he was familiar with the terrain. Otte III credited his impressive round to his ability to block out the distractions on the course.

“I didn't think too much out there,” Otte III said. “I didn't try to take anything the course didn't give me. I really liked the way I played today, but I've still got two more rounds to go.”

David Lee of Houston, and Dylan Siebenaler of Sugar Land, Texas, are one shot behind Otte III at 1-under-par 71. Sam Fidone of Lufkin, Texas, Jordan Karam of Lake Charles, La., and Nicholas Torrance of Bradenton, Fla., are tied for fourth at even-par 72.

In the Girls Division, Erynne Lee is no stranger to the Laredo Energy Junior at Traditions. She has finished second the last two years and enters the tournament as one of the top-ranked girls in the field. Great iron play vaulted her to a three shot lead, as she hit 16 greens.

“My iron shots were really accurate, which helped me a lot through the day,” said Erynne, a two-time Rolex Junior All-American. “I also sank a couple birdie putts which helped as well. It would mean a lot to win this tournament.”

Tanaporn Kongkiatkrai of Bradenton, Fla., is three shots behind Erynne in second place. Tied for third are Portland Rosen of Sugar Land, Texas, and Karen Chung of Livingston, N.J., at 1-over-par 73.
