Smith Takes First-Round Lead At Cleveland Junior Open
Harper at the top of Girls Division at Red Tail Golf Club

AVON, Ohio — Scott Smith of Pepper Pike, Ohio leads the Boys Division after the first round of the Cleveland Junior Open with a 1-under-par 71. In the Girls Division, Allison Harper of Columbus, Ohio delivered the low first-round score with a 1-over-par 73.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Cleveland Junior Open is a 54-hole stroke play event held at Red Tail Golf Club in Avon, Ohio. The field features 88 boys and 29 girls, ages 12-18, from 15 states, Canada, Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador and Colombia. The par-72 course is played from 6,954 yards in the Boys Division and 6,151 yards in the Girls Division.

After starting out the round with some bunker trouble on No. 1, Smith finished Tuesday's round with three birdies. There was no need for highlights in Smith's round, instead he just played consistent golf. Smith is an accomplished Ohio player, holding the title of all-Ohio for two years.

“I haven't been playing well recently and I decided to go into this tournament with a new focus to just have fun and not worry about the score,” said Smith. “My focus tomorrow will be to have fun. It's hard not to have fun when you're on a golf course.”

Following Smith was Francesco Ruffino of Bloomfield Hills, Mich. in a close second with a even-par 72. Andrew Wong of Deerfield Beach, Fla. is third at 1-over-par 73. Tied for fourth are Boo Timko of Girard, Ohio, Sebastian Barnoya of Guatemala, Guatemala and Alec Tahy of Dayton, Ohio at 2-over-par 74.

Harper had an excellent round hitting almost every green and fairway, she said, en route to sweeping five birdies. Harper swiped three birdies on the front nine and two on the back nine and thanked her drives for that.

“My drives were on today,” said Harper. “My goal was to just keep the tempo. I was not concerned with hitting the ball too hard, and instead, just keeping the ball straight.”

Tied for second in the Girls Division are Minjia Luo of San Diego, Calif. and Linda Luo of Lakewood Ranch, Fla. at a 2-over-par 74.
