Lagodich, Toste tied atop Boys Division leaderboard at AJGA Stonehenge Junior Open Weaver leads Girls Division by two strokes at Stonehenge Golf & Country Club
WINONA LAKE, Ind. — Logan Lagodich of Canton, Ohio, and Zachary Toste of Pembroke Pines, Fla., share the lead in the Boys Division at the AJGA Stonehenge Junior Open after each player fired an opening-round 5-under-par 66. In the Girls Division, Lindsey Weaver of Scottsdale, Ariz., sits atop the leader board with a 4-under-par 67.
Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Stonehenge Junior Open is a 54-hole stroke play event with a 36-hole cut at Stonehenge Golf & Country Club. The tournament field consists of 111 boys and 34 girls from 14 states and three countries, Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia. The Boys Division plays the par-71 course at 6,801 yards while the Girls Division plays at 6,044 yards.
Lagodich, who hit 10 fairways and had seven birdies Tuesday en route to a first-round 66, said the Stonehenge Golf & Country Club suited his game nicely.
“I'm comfortable because it's really wide open,” Lagodich said. “You look out there and, to me, it just looks like a lot of fairways to hit at. Anytime you're in a fairway, it's going to set you up with an easier shot.”
Toste, whose round featured an eagle on the par-4 No. 4, also said he felt comfortable in the opening round, but for an entirely different reason.
“I think having my coaches from Notre Dame come out to watch me really helped a lot,” said Toste, who verbally committed to the Fighting Irish in early spring. “They helped me keep my head level.”
Adam Wood of Zionsville, Ind., sits alone in third at 4-under-par 67. Tied for fourth at 3-under-par 68 are: Colin Proctor of Anderson, Ind., Bobby Jacobs of Valparaiso, Ind., Sebastian Barnoya of Guatemala, Guatemala, Doug Ghim of Arlington Heights, Ill., and Tyler Ostrom of Warsaw, Ind.
Coming off a successful Wyndham Cup, in which she won 3 of 4 matches, Weaver continued her solid play Tuesday and said she is already preparing for her next major AJGA event.
“This is my last tournament of the summer actually because I start school next week. I'm kind of using this to build confidence so I'll feel better about my game heading into the (PING Junior) Solheim Cup, even though it's kind of far away,” Weaver said. “I'll take whatever happens this week and improve my game for Ireland.”
Catherina Li of Kent, Wash., is two strokes back in second after carding a 2-under-par 69 and Alexandra Harkins of Crystal Lake, Ill., sits in third at 2-over-par 73.
