Lewis, Pisciotta lead Boys Division after first round at the Frederica Junior Open
Clark, Kim have one stroke lead in Girls Division at Frederica Golf Club

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga., — Michael Pisciotta of Alpharetta, Ga., and Joe Lewis of Savannah, Ga., both fired 4-under-par 68 to tie for first and take a one stroke lead into the second round at the Frederica Junior Open. Also tied for first, in the Girls Division, Aliea Clark of Carlsbad, Calif., and Anna Kim of Chandler, Ariz., carded  2-under-par 70 in the first round at Frederica Golf Club.  

The Frederica Junior Open is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Frederica Golf Club. The tournament field includes 72 boys and 24 girls, ages 12-18 from 13 states. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 7,154 yards and the Girls Division is playing at 6,243 yards.

 This is Pisciotta’s third first-round lead this summer, putting him in a familiar place going into Wednesday’s round.

“I’m used to this situation,” Pisciotta said. “Tomorrow I just need to stay focused on my target, and make sure that I’m hitting every shot where I need to.”

In a tie for first with Pisciotta, Lewis put together four birdies throughout the round to keep him one stroke ahead of the field.

“I had solid play all around today,” Lewis said. “As long as I keep the ball in play and don’t go for anything too crazy tomorrow, I should be able to keep going.”  

Michael Monroe of Franklin, Tenn., Meechai Padungsiriseth of Bradenton, Fla., and Joshua Lee of Orange Park, Fla., are all tied for third in the Boys Division, each carding a 3-under-par 69.

In the Girls Division, Clark made two birdies on the front nine to keep her 2-under-par for the day.

“I just need to get going on these greens,” Clark said. “I am excited to make some putts tomorrow.”

Also in first, Kim chipped herself out of a water hazard on No.11, to make par and keep her one-stroke ahead with Clark going into the second round.

“I have a pretty good confidence level right now,” Kim said. “I need to focus on one shot at a time and continue to play well.”

Mary Ellen Shuman of St. Simons Island, Ga., and Christine Lin of Austin, Texas, both shot 1-under-par 71 to tie for third.

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.

Titleist, the AJGA's National Sponsor, has been the catalyst and driving force behind the Association's success since 1989. Rolex, which is in its third decade of AJGA support, became the inaugural AJGA Premier Partner in 2004. 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.
