ALLENSPACH GETS PUTTER ROLLING, FIRES 4-UNDER-PAR 68 AT FIDELITY INVESTMENTS JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Burlison leads Girls Division with a 1-under-par 71 at Redstone Golf Club

HUMBLE, Texas — After the first round of the Fidelity Investments Junior Championship at Redstone Golf Club, Drew Allenspach of Sugar Land, Texas, leads the Boys Division with a 4-under-par 68. Leading the Girls Division with a 1-under-par 71 is Sydney Burlison of Salinas, Calif. This is the first time both players have led an American Junior Golf Association event.

The Fidelity Investments Junior Championship, conducted by the AJGA, features 64 boys and 21 girls — ages 12-18 — from 11 states (66 from the state of Texas). The event is being staged on the par-72, 7,309-yard Jacobsen Hardy Course at Redstone Golf Club (Girls Division played at 6,080 yards).

Starting on the back nine, Allenspach began his day with nine consecutive pars. After a bogey on his tenth hole, the 561-yard, par-5 first, he birdied Nos. 2-6.

“I had everything rolling today, especially the putter,” said the 18-year-old Allenspach. “I had a lot of looks and the putter did the rest.”

This is the first AJGA event that Allenspach has led after three years as a member of the organization. A second-place finish at The PING Junior at The Woodlands was his best finish this season. Allenspach will continue his golf career at Indiana University in the fall.

Dustin Morris of Crosby, Texas, is sitting in second with a round of 70. In a tie for third, Cody Vincent of Sulphur, La., and Riley Pumphrey of Georgetown, Texas, finished their rounds at 71. Rounding out the top five of the Boys Division is Bryant Lach of The Woodlands, Texas, and Robert Mayo of Austin, Texas, in a tie at 72.

A steady pace helped Burlison lead the way for the girls, with a round consisting of 17 pars and one birdie. The 15-year-old sophomore is leading her first individual event.

“Although I was spraying my driver, I was playing my bunker shots really well,” said Burlison. “I was three out of three (making par) from the bunkers.”

In a tie for second in the Girls Division are Lila Barton of Dallas, and Sara Hemingway of Kingwood, Texas. They both shot opening rounds of 1-over-par 73.

Titleist, the AJGA's National Sponsor, has been the catalyst and driving force behind the Association's success since 1989. Rolex Watch USA, which enters its third decade of support, became the inaugural AJGA Premier Partner in 2004.
