Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the John Deere Classic Junior Open at Glynns Creek Golf Course is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at Glynns Creek Golf Course. The tournament field consists of 117 boys and 27 girls, ages 12-18, from 24 states,
“My driving was the best part of my game. I missed my first fairway on No. 10 but I hit every fairway after that,” said Ellis.
Ellis took advantage of every par-5 by making birdies on all four.
Derek Baade of St. Joseph, Mo., Stephen Powers of Naperville, Ill., Bennett Lavin of Deerfield, Ill., and Alexander Burge of Bloomington, Ill., all enter the second round in a tie for second place after posting first-round scores of one-under-par 71s.
In the Girls Division, Talley is in the lead after making birdies on Nos. 5, 6, 8, and 9 en route to a front of 4-under-par 32 for a first round score of 3-under-par 69.
