Vatananugulkit leads Girls Division at 3-over-par after second round in Junior All-Star at Marshallia Ranch

VANDENBERG AFB, Calif.— Macgregor Hoobery of Santa Maria, Calif., fired six birdies for five-under-par 67 in the second round at Marshallia Ranch Golf Course for a two-day total of 10-under-par 134. In the Girls Division, Beverly Vatananugulkit of Cerritos, Calif., carded a two-over-par 74 in Wednesday's round of the Junior All-Star at Marshallia Ranch giving her the lead with a two-day total of 147.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Assocation, the Junior All-Star at Marshallia Ranch is a 54-hole stroke play event featuring 89 boys and 28 girls, ranging in age from 12-15. Thirteen states and one foreign country are represented with 84 players from California. The event is being staged on the par-72 Marshallia Ranch Golf Course with boys tees set at 6,536 yards and girls tees set at 5,651 yards.

Hoobery's patience on the course Wednesday led to his consistent play, carding three birdies on the front nine and three on the back nine. He enters the final round of the tournament with a seven-stroke cushion.

“I played well because I was patient,” Hoobery said. “I was able to sink my putts and make my birdies, staying steady all the way through.”

A tie for second place at 141 is held by Raymond Gerow of Santa Barbara, Calif., and Shun Yat Hak of Lake Mary, Fla. Tied for fourth are Justin Thomas of Goshen, Ky., Tyler Kato of Seattle, Wash., and Jay Burlison of Salinas, Calif., at 142.

Practicing her putting before Wednesday's round helped Vatananugulkit take the lead by two strokes, but she says her plan is to slow things down for the final round and have more opportunities for birdie.

“I'd like to improve my approach shots for tomorrow,” Vatananugulkit said. “I hit fewer fairways today and had to play a lot out of the rough.”

Tied for second place in the Girls Division are Demi Frances Runas of Torrance, Calif., Victoria Fallgren of Lakewood, Calif., and Katia Joo of Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., with 5-over-par 149.
