Inclement weather forces delays, second round to be finished Friday

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — In just her second AJGA tournament, Hsiao-Ching Lu of Taipei, Taiwan, leads during the second round of the Rolex Girls Junior Championship with a two-round score of 70-69-139. Inclement weather forced the committee to suspend play, leaving 35 rounds to be completed Friday morning.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Rolex Girls Junior Championship is one of 11 Invitationals on the AJGA schedule, highlighting 76 of the nation's best junior girl golfers, 14 of which are Rolex Junior All-Americans. The 54-hole event is being played on the LPGA International — Legends Course and features junior golfers from 21 states and four foreign countries—Canada, Mexico, Taiwan and Japan.

With a sixth-place finish at the Thunderbird International Junior in her first AJGA event, Lu earned her spot in this week's field. After playing junior tournaments in Asia, Lu came to the United States looking for a higher level of competition.

“There are so many great players that come from the AJGA,” Lu said. “I see this as an opportunity to gauge my level of skill.”

Her skill shined brightly in the hot and humid Florida morning, as Lu hit her first 11 greens and eight of her first nine fairways. A front-nine 33 propelled her to a second consecutive sub-par round, the only player in the field to accomplish this feat thus far.

Lu enters the final round with a slim one-shot lead over four-time Rolex Junior All-American Morgan Pressel of Boca Raton, Fla. Pressel, the first-round leader, shot a 73 that included 15 pars and one birdie.

“I got a little anxious today when things didn't go well,” Pressel said. “I got too far ahead of myself today. I need to stay calmer and keep firing.”

Of the 41 players who completed the second round, only five posted 36-hole scores under par. Megan Grehan of Mamaroneck, N.Y., sits in third at 72-69-141, In-Bee Park of Las Vegas is in fourth at 70-72-142, and Catherina Wang of Orlando is in fifth after posting 72-71-143.

The American Junior Golf Association is a 501c(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 largest Association of its kind, the AJGA has a junior membership (boys and girls ages 12-18) of approximately 5,000 junior golfers from 50 states and 30 foreign countries.

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

AJGA alumni have risen to the top of amateur, collegiate and professional golf. More than 200 former AJGA juniors currently play on the PGA and LPGA Tours and have compiled more than 280 wins. AJGA alumni include Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Davis Love III, Mike Weir, Charles Howell III, Jim Furyk, Dottie Pepper, Grace Park, Cristie Kerr and Beth Bauer.

Players will complete the second round at 7:30 a.m. with a shotgun start, while the final round also will be a shotgun start beginning at 10 a.m. at the LPGA International — Legends Course.
