Park cards 67, takes lead at ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior
Lee remains in first at Mission Hills Country Club

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — Kaitlin Park of Tustin Ranch, Calif., endured the extreme heat and fired a bogey-free, 5-under-par 67 to take the 36-hole lead in the Girls Division at Mission Hills Country Club. In the Boys Division, John Lee of Los Alamitos, Calif., birdied five of his final 11 holes, bringing his 36-hole score to 6-under-par 138.

The ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The Tournament field features 54 boys and 24 girls from seven states and two countries. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 7,101 yards and the Girls Division is playing at 6,177 yards.

Park, who has verbally committed to Tulane University, shaved six strokes off her opening-round 73. She pointed to her putting when explaining her second-round success.

“I started out struggling, but my putting really pulled through,” Park said. “I made a lot of long par putts at the beginning and later on I started making my birdie putts.”

Park's 67 is her career low in AJGA play.

“The Kraft Nabisco [Championship] is here,” Park said. “If I ever get the chance to play here later on, I will remember this day.”

First-round leader Angel Yin of Arcadia, Calif., is in sole possession of second place after carding a second-round, 2-over-par 74. Yin, just 12-years-old, stands at 1-under-par 143 for the tournament. Andrea Lee of Hermosa Beach, Calif., and Anna Sophia Bohmer of Cali, Colombia, are tied for third place at 2-over-par 146 for the tournament.

After playing his front nine at 2-over-par, Lee shot a 4-under-par 32 on his final nine holes. He will enter the final round with a five-stroke lead.

“I just want to hit fairways and greens tomorrow,” Lee said. “If the opportunity arises, I'll try to make the putt or go for the pin.”

Connor Campbell of Seal Beach, Calif., shot a 1-under-par 71 and is in sole possession of second place with a 1-under-par 143. Angelo Jose Gandionco of Cebu City, Philippines recorded a 1-over-par 73 and stands alone in third place, at even-par 144.

Andrew Morgan of Long Beach, Calif., Sahith Theegala of Chino Hills, Calif., and Corey Shaun of Rancho Sante Fe, Calif., are tied for fourth place, at 2-over-par 146 for the tournament.
