ANDREWS AND BARRETT LEAD AT GOLF PRIDE JUNIOR CLASSIC
Wagstaff jumps ahead in the Girls Division at National Golf Club

VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, N.C. — Bo Andrews of Raleigh, N.C., and Patrick Barrett of Pinehurst, N.C., are knotted atop the leaderboard after shooting 3-under-par 69s Tuesday. Stephanie Wagstaff of Asheville, N.C., shot an even-par 72 to lead the Girls Division after the first round.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Golf Pride Junior Classic is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at National Golf Club. The 95-player field features juniors from 13 states and Canada. The course is being played at 7,068 yards in the Boys Division and 6,209 yards in the Girls Division.

Andrews, who began on the back nine, won the Burgett H. Mooney, Jr. Rome Classic earlier this summer. He started his round off with a bogey on No. 10, but wouldn't card another for the rest of the round.

“I struggled early but got up and down a couple times to get it going,” Andrews said.

He went on to notch four birdies and says he hopes to do the same tomorrow.

“I just want to hit fairways and greens tomorrow,” Andrews added. “If a few putts drop for birdie, great!”

Barrett, a Pinehurst native, said he's played here numerous times, an experience that paid off today in the way of five birdies. He gave credit to his putter and the greens for his low score today.

“The greens got a lot better today, and I made a lot of putts,” Barrett said. “Tomorrow I'm just going to make as many birdies as I can and go from there.”

There is a collection of players tied for third in the Boys Division. Mark McMillen, Jr., of Smithfield, N.C., Aaron Sherry of Fort Myers, Fla., Daniel Meggs of Charlotte, N.C., Will Almand of Cary, N.C., and Christopher Biuso of Tampa, Fla., shot 2-under-par 70s to sit one shot back.

In the Girls Division, Wagstaff got up and down for par on Nos. 1 and 2 before making birdie on the 3rd hole when she hit a hybrid to within two feet. This is Wagstaff's 17th AJGA event, and heading into tomorrow she says she just wants to come out and play another good round.

“The course is set up tough, and the greens are hard,” she said. “Tomorrow I'm going to try and hit to my targets and putt well.”

Melissa Edmonson of Coral Gables, Fla., shot 2-over-par 74 and is in second place. In third place and one shot behind her is Courtney McKim of Raleigh.
