Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Junior All-Star at Lubbock hosted by Randy Smith is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at The Rawls Course at Texas Tech University.

The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 6,817 yards, while the Girls Division is playing the course at 5,859 yards.

Moore carded eight birdies and 26 putts on the day and said his strong short game helped him to surpass a previous personal best score of 67. Moore completed the front nine at 3-under-par 33. He picked up momentum making the turn and had the best hole of his round.

β€œOn No. 10 I hit a 7-iron and it stopped three feet away from the hole,” Moore said. β€œI had just made a birdie on No. 9 and that really got me going.”

In an eight-way tie for second at a 2-under-par 70 are Thomas Lim of Moorpark, Calif., Connor Kurtz of Edmond, Kevin Foley of The Woodlands, Texas, Wyndham Clark of Greenwood Village, Colo., Kraig Mcleod of Pebble Beach, Calif., Corey Hayford of Friendswood, Texas, Ryann Ree of Redondo Beach, Calif., and Jake Katz of Thousand Oaks, Calif.

In the Girls Division, Tiffany Lim recorded seven birdies during the round, including three in a row on Nos. 15, 16 and 17. Lim believed her success around the greens helped her to gain a six-stroke advantage.

β€œI was really confident with my putting,” Lim said. β€œI committed to every line and every shot.”

Following in second is Heather Proctor of Silver Spring, Fla., at 2-over-par 74. Lily Bartell of Cave Creek, Ariz., sits in third at 3-over-par 75.
