Hossler and Seramin Tied After First Round of Trader Joe's Junior Championship
Nhim sits atop the Girls Division at Castlewood Country Club

Pleasanton, Calif. — Beau Hossler of Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., and Matthew Seramin of San Geronimo, Calif., each fired a 3-under-par 67 to tie for the first place position in the first round of the Trader Joe's Junior Championship hosted by Pat Hurst. Kristina Nhim of Buena Park, Calif., carded an even-par 70 to grab the top spot in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Trader Joe's Junior Championship hosted by Pat Hurst is a 54-hole stroke-play event held at Castlewood Country Club on the Hill Course. The 99-player field features 72 boys and 27 girls, ages 12-18, from ten states, Canada, China, Mexico and the Philippines. The Boys Division is playing the par-70 course from 6,197 yards and the Girls Division is playing from 5,529 yards.

Hossler played a steady round, making pars where he needed, and taking advantage of the less difficult holes. He tallied four birdies for the round and only one bogey.

“My round wasn't too exciting; but I was consistent throughout the day and able to make easy pars,” Hossler said. “I need to work on hitting the ball closer when I have birdie opportunities in the fairway.”

Seramin is excited to being leading in what is one of his last junior golf events, as he will be attending UC Davis in the fall. For the second year in a row, Seramin is leading after the first round of the Trader Joe's Junior Championship hosted by Pat Hurst. He came off the front nine at 4-under-par, but bogeyed Nos. 13, 15 and 17 to finish in a tie with Hossler.

“I started the day strong with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 2 and 3 and again on Nos. 7 and 8,” Seramin said. “I lost my momentum on the back nine, but I know if stay patient tomorrow I can shoot low again.”

Three players are tied for third in the Boys Division. Matt Crawford of Redwood City, Calif., Alex Angard of Encino, Calif., and Justin Pagila of Dublin, Calif., all carded a 2-under-par 68.

In the Girls Division, Nhim leads by one stroke heading into the second round. Finishing the first nine at 2-over-par, Nhim quickly turned things around with a birdie on No. 10. She also carded birdies on Nos. 13 and 18.

“I didn't start well today but I was able to hit more greens on the back nine so I made up some strokes,” Nhim said. “Tomorrow I want to remain steady and keep playing my irons well.”

In a tie for second place in the Girls Division are Marika Liu of Beverly Hills, Calif., and Somin Lee of Denver at 1-over-par 71.
