HEAVY TRAFFIC ATOP LEADERBOARD AT SUBARU OPEN

Freeman maintains lead in Girls Division

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Marc Gladson of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, carded his second consecutive round of 70 to claim the lead at the Subaru Open at Andover.  Gladson, who entered the day tied for second, now sits alone with a tournament total of 140.  Ashley Freeman of Belleville, Ill., remained the leader in the Girls Division, firing a 71 for the second straight day.

               
The Subaru Open at Andover is a 54-hole stroke-play event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Andover Golf & Country Club.  The tournament includes 99 boy and girl junior golfers, ages 12-18, from 18 states, Canada, and Japan.  Four Rolex Junior All-Americans and 29 Kentucky natives highlight the field.

               
Gladson’s day was highlighted by five birdies, including three straight on Nos. 7, 8 and 9.  He credited his driving and iron play for his solid round.  “I was driving the ball extremely well and it set up my irons nicely,” the seventeen-year old Gladson said.  “I was able to keep myself close to the hole and give myself good birdie opportunities.”

               
Gladson jump started his round on No. 7, when he sank a 15-foot putt for birdie and got back to even par on the day.  “Those three consecutive birdies were really big for me,” Gladson explained.  “Tomorrow will be fun.  We’ll all be playing against the course and being in the lead really won’t be a big issue for me,” he commented. 

               
Trailing Gladson by one-stroke is Justin Perry of Franklin, Ky., who posted the low round with a 66.  Perry, 18, who on Monday shot a 64 during the Junior-Am, finished his second round especially strong.  Perry birdied his last three holes of the day, including a long putt on No. 18. 

               
“I changed a few things after the round yesterday and today I hit it like I did during the Junior-Am,” Perry said.  “I bogeyed the first hole, but I was able to keep it in play the rest of the day and had no penalty strokes,” he explained.  “I had my best drive on No. 16 and then finished well on the last three.  It was a very good way to end my day and I feel good about my chances of pulling it off tomorrow.”

               
Sitting in third with a tournament total of 143 is Kyle Hodges of Hamilton, Ohio, who fired a second-round 69.  Thomas Buran of Scottsdale, Ariz., is alone in fourth, four shots off the lead.  Matthew Coles of Franklin, Tenn., Noah Goldman of Longwood, Fla., and first round leader Alex Martin of Middletown, Ohio, are tied for fifth place.  The three players shot 68, 71, 77, respectively, placing themselves five shots back.

               
Freeman, 16, continues to lead the Girls Division, in what promises to be a closely contested final round.  Freeman carded her second consecutive 71, firing a 36 on the front nine and 35 on the back.  Although she said it was not her best round, Freeman was able to keep it play all day long.

             

“I had all pars on the front, and birdies on Nos. 10, 14 and 15,” Freeman said.  “I hit my approach on No. 16 in the water, but was able to recover and complete my round.”  Freeman credited the group of girls she played with as being a key reason for her success.  “It was nice playing with players who are very close to me in length.  We try to out-do each other and both of them are phenomenal players,” Freeman said.

               
The players Freeman was speaking of are Jennifer Hong of Windemere, Fla., and Yuki Sakurai of Kyoto, Japan.  Hong and Sakurai sit three-strokes back at 145.  Sakurai carded a second round 70, followed closely by Hong’s 71. 


The final round of the Subaru Open at Andover will begin Thursday morning at 7 a.m. off the No. 1 tee.
