WALLACE NOTCHES SEVEN BIRDIES TO TAKE LEAD AT ABACOA
Fourteen-year-old Hetzel grabs lead in Girls Division

JUPITER, Fla. -- Adam Wallace of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., carded seven birdies en route to a second-round, 5-under-par 67 and a two-shot lead heading into the final round of the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Junior at Abacoa. Mallory Hetzel of Summerville, S.C., shot a 73 to take the lead in the Girls Division.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 84 players representing 12 states and Japan. The 10th annual event is making its debut at Abacoa Golf Club.

Wallace, who started on the back nine, got off to a fast start with birdies on two of his first three holes. After another birdie on the par-3, 159-yard 15th hole, Wallace made the turn at 3-under-par 33 with another birdie on No. 17. Wallace wasted no time on the front nine, making up for a bogey on No. 18 with two more birdies on Nos. 1 and 2. Wallace birdied No. 7 to move to 3-under-par before a bogey on No. 8 gave him a 34 on the front nine and a two-day total of 72-67-139.

"My birdies on Nos. 1 and 2 really brought back the momentum I had earlier in my round," the 17-year-old Wallace said. "They really gave me the confidence I needed down the stretch.

"I felt I got robbed on the greens yesterday," said Wallace, who has hit 32 of 36 greens the last two days. "I couldn't make any putts, but today I was able to convert. Tomorrow, I just need to go out and not make any mistakes. I want to try and hit every green, just like I've been doing."

Wallace, who finished sixth at the Joe Durant Southern Junior, will be looking to bring home his first AJGA title.

Joseph Sykora of Daphne, Ala., trails Wallace by two-shots after carding a 2-under-par 70 to sit at 141. First-round co-leader Robert Gates of Gainesville, Fla., is in third at 70-72-142 while Chris Anderson of Lake Mary, Fla., and Joshua Flamm of Jacksonville, Fla., round out the top five at 144 and 145 respectively.

In the Girls Division, the 14-year-old Hetzel, who had 13 pars and two birdies in her round, played her first five holes on the back nine in even-par fashion. After a bogey on No. 15, she recovered with a birdie on No. 17 to make the turn at even-par. After another birdie on No. 2, Hetzel played her final seven holes at 2-over-par to finish at 76-73-149 and stake claim to a two-shot lead.

"I'm really starting to hit the ball well," Hetzel said. "It's been a while since I've hit it this well. I didn't catch too many breaks out there today, so hopefully tomorrow I can get some putts to drop.

"I just need to go out there and play a normal round of golf, not force things and be patient."

Hetzel, who is playing in only her second AJGA event, will look for her second win in three weeks after winning the South Carolina state tournament "The Blade" two weeks ago.

First-round leader Yunny Cho of Bradenton, Fla., is second at 73-78-151 while Theresa Paik of Silver Springs, Md., sits in third at 74-78-152.


Final round tee times will run tomorrow from 7-9 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees.
