BECK LEADS GOLF PRIDE JUNIOR CLASSIC AT 4-UNDER-PAR 138
Kiser leads Girls Division at 4-over-par 146 at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club

 SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. — Evan Beck of Virginia Beach, Va., leads the Boys Division at 4-under-par 138 at the Golf Pride Junior Classic. Victoria Kiser of Orlando, Fla., grabbed the lead at 4-over-par 146 in the Girls Division at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Golf Pride Junior Classic is a 54-hole stroke-play event being held at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club, the host to three U.S. Women’s Opens in the past 12 years. The tournament field consists of 75 boys and 24 girls, ages 12-18, from 15 states. The Boys Division is playing the par-71 course at 6,902 yards, while the Girls Division is being played at 6,002 yards.

Beck’s second round of 2-under-par 69 in continuous rain featured three birdies and only one bogey that included a tight approach on the par-3 No. 13 to eight feet for birdie.

“The course conditions were not the best today,” Beck said. “But I really could not have played any better. I want to win and am just going to keep playing as I have been tomorrow.”

Zachary Blair of Ogden, Utah, and Chase Parker of Augusta, Ga., sits in second at 3-under-par 139. In a tie for fourth at 2-under-par 140 are Will Jones of Rome, Ga., and Grayson Murray of Raleigh, N.C.

Kiser leads the Girls Division after a 2-over-par 73 second round that included two birdies, one on the tight par-5 15th.

“On No. 15 I hit in from about 60 yards to five feet for birdie,” Kiser said. “I hope the conditions will be better tomorrow so I can shoot even lower.”

In a three-way tie for second at 7-over-par 149 are Sarah Bae of Raleigh, N.C., Katie Kirk of Davidson, N.C., and Courtney Gunter of Matthews, N.C.
