RAYMOND DRIVES HIS WAY INTO SECOND-ROUND LEAD
Cullen leads Girls Division after second-round play

LUBBOCK, Texas — Broc Raymond of The Woodlands, Texas, came out firing at the Randy Smith Classic presented by the Lubbock Sports Authority. Raymond went 3-under-par to lead the Boys Division going into Thursday's final round. Lindsay Cullen of Allen, Texas, sits atop the Girls Division leaderboard after carding a 2-under-par 70, going into the final round at The Rawls Course at Texas Tech University.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Randy Smith Classic presented by the Lubbock Sports Authority is a 54-hole stroke play event held at the Rawls Course at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. The tournament features 90 boys and 30 girls — ages 12-18 — from 12 states including 80 from Texas. Past Champions include Cody Wimberly of Lubbock, Texas and Taylore Karle of Scottsdale, Ariz.

Raymond finished second-round play at 7-under-par 137 and said his driving couldn't have been better.

“I hit my driver perfectly today,” Raymond said. “I hit the shots I needed to hit and didn't get into any trouble.”

Raymond birdied his first two holes and went on to birdie four more. With the windy conditions, the par 72 course has proven more difficult on some holes than others said Raymond.

“I knew I had to get off on a good start because the back nine is tougher with the wind,” Cullen said. “Tomorrow, I have to keep my ball striking at what it was today and get my putting up to par.”

Two strokes behind Raymond in second place is Devin Miertschin from El Paso, Texas, with a 3-under-par 139. Michael Milliken of Richmond, Texas and Drew Evans from Dallas, are tied for third place with 2-under-par 140s. And rounding out the top five are Brandon Putnam of Albuquerque, N.M., and Michael Whitehead of Sugar Land, Texas, both with 141s.

Cullen carded five birdies for the day and said the front nine is where her game got started.

“I like No.2, it's an easy hole to reach the green in two,” Cullen said. “That hole got me going and I just kept going and made all my putts.”

Heading into the final round, Cullen is taking one thing at a time and hopes the final round plays as well as the first and second.

“I'm going to play one hole at a time, make some pars and hopefully win,” Cullen said.

Rounding out the Girls Division are Allyson Ferguson of Houston, carding a 1-over-par 145 and Whitney Wenglasz of Oldsmar, Fla., following close behind with a 2-over-par 146.
