Yu Liu takes control at
Rolex Girls Junior Championship

Liu makes eight birdies, leads by three at
Somerby Golf Club

Byron, Minn. — Yu Liu of Beijing, China, claimed the third-round lead at the Rolex Girls Junior Championship by firing a 7-under-par 65. She sits two shots ahead of first- and second-round leader Ariya Jutanugarn of Bangkok, Thailand.

The Rolex Girls Junior Championship is a 72-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Somerby Golf Club in Byron, Minn. The tournament field includes 95 girls, ages 12-18, from 17 states, Puerto Rico, and seven foreign countries (Japan, Colombia, Mexico, Argentina, Philippines, Thailand and China). The course is being played at 6,288 yards.

Liu's confidence level continued to rise as birdie putts began to drop. She made a total of eight birdies, including a four-hole stretch on Nos. 4 through 7.

“I think everything is in good shape for me right now, especially my putting. I just need to keep my pace and confidence,” Lui said. “This has definitely increased my confidence. There are so many great players out here, especially Ariya. I know she has finished top-ten in a LPGA event. I feel very happy to be where I am today.”

Jutanugarn sits in second place with a three-day total of 12-under-par 204. Jaye Marie Green of Boca Raton, Fla., holds on to third place with a score of 9-under-par 207. Kyung Kim of Chandler, Ariz., carded a 7-under-par 209 to sit in fourth place. Rounding out the top five is Alison Lee of Valencia, Calif., with a tournament total of 6-under-par 210.

The American Junior Golf Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf. The AJGA provides valuable exposure for college golf scholarships, and has an annual junior membership (boys and girls ages 12-18) of approximately 5,000 junior golfers from 49 states and more than 40 countries. To ensure scholarship opportunities for all junior golfers who have the skill, the AJGA created the Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) Grant program to provide financial assistance to young players in need.

Rolex, which is in its third decade of support, became the inaugural AJGA Premier Partner in 2004. Along with sponsoring the Rolex Girls Junior Championship, Rolex is also the title partner of the Rolex Tournament of Champions and the proprietor of the Rolex Junior All-America Teams.

Titleist, the AJGA's National Sponsor, has been the catalyst and driving force behind the Association's success since 1989. In 2007, after 12 years of support, Polo Ralph Lauren became the AJGA's second Premier Partner.

AJGA alumni have risen to the top of amateur, collegiate and professional golf. Former AJGA juniors have compiled more than 500 victories on the PGA and LPGA Tours. AJGA alumni include Stewart Cink, Matt Kuchar, Hunter Mahan, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr, Inbee Park and Morgan Pressel.

The final round tee time of the Rolex Girls Junior Championship will begin at 7 a.m on Nos. 1 and 10. For more information about the Rolex Girls Junior Championship, please contact AJGA Tournament Headquarters at (507) 775-3750.
