Schall fires 2-under to sit atop leaderboard in Girls Division at even-par 144

PENSACOLA, Fla. — Pete Kellermann of Jacksonville, Fla., came out firing on the second day of the Jerry Pate/Andrews Institute Southern Junior Wednesday, carding a 3-under-par 69 to claim the Boys Division lead with a two-day total of 5-under-par 139. In the Girls Division, Jessica Schall of Lake Mary, Fla., fired a 2-under-par 70 to finish the day three strokes ahead of the field with a second-round total of even-par 144.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Jerry Pate/Andrews Institute Southern Junior is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at the Pensacola County Club. The 83-player field features players from 15 states. The par-72 course is being played at 6,762 yards for the Boys Division and 6,043 yards for the Girls Division.

Kellermann, playing in his first AJGA event, said his irons were a strong point during his round and contributed to birdies on Nos. 5, 6 and 7.

“I tried to do everything the same today and it worked out for me,” he said. “I feel good going into tomorrow. As long as I keep hitting irons and make solid drives I should be okay.”

Behind Kellermann in second place is Shang Zhi of Bradenton, Fla., with a two-day total of 4-under-par 140. In a three-way tie for third place, all shooting 3-under-par 141s, are Zeyu He of Bradenton, Fla., David Zickler of Florence, Ala., and Minghao Wang of Reunion, Fla.

In the Girls Division, Schall improved her score by four strokes from the previous round and carded consecutive birdied on Nos. 16, 17 and 18 to add to a total of six on the day. Despite her solid play, Schall said she became intimidated and had to work on her mental game to stay strong.

“I realized I was three under and I got caught up in it,” Schall said. “I told myself to just focus on every shot then.”

Schall said playing an extra round in the Srixon Qualifier helped prepare her for the tournament.

“It's gotten easier every round,” she said. “If anything, I know where to miss it now and my putts are just falling more.”

Three strokes behind Schall, in a tie for second place, are Maria Castellanos of Stuart, Fla., and Haley Millsap of Pace, Fla., with two-day totals of 3-over-par 147.
