Lavin Still Leads Through Second Round at AJGA Apawamis Junior
Vongphoumy holds eleven-shot lead at The Apawamis Club

RYE, N.Y. — Bennett Lavin of Deerfield, Ill., maintained his lead in the Boys Division after carding an even-par 72 in the second round of the AJGA Apawamis Junior. Juliet Vongphoumy of Providence, R.I., fired a 1-under-par 71 to increase her lead to eleven strokes in the Girls Division.

The AJGA Apawamis Junior is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at The Apawamis Club. The tournament field features 72 boys and 27 girls, ages 12-18, from 17 states, the United Kingdom, China and Canada. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 6,525 yards, while the Girls Division is playing at 5,837 yards.

Lavin carded another solid round at The Apawamis Club with an even-par 72 for a second round total of 2-under-par 142. Lavin only had one bogey on the day and said his score was due to keeping the ball in play.

“I hit a lot of fairways and greens,” Lavin said. “Hitting the fairway is just a must out here.”

Lavin said he has been enjoying the course at Apawamis. He has been hitting 3-wood and hybrid off the tee to keep the ball where he wants it.

“I'm not that long off the tee,” Lavin said. “I'm good at hitting fairways, so tighter courses are my favorite.”

Close behind Lavin in second is Benjamin DeForest of Cottekill, N.Y., with a 1-under-par 143. In a tie for third are Anthony Alex of Wayne, N.J., and Brian Starker of Purchase, N.Y., with a 1-over-par 145. In a tie for fifth place are Dylan Murray of Westport, Conn., and Colin McDade of Rye, N.Y., with a 2-over-par 146.

Vongphoumy continued to play steady golf, posting a second-consecutive sub-par round in the Girls Division bringing her two-day total to 4-under-par 140. Although she was the only girl under par, she said her round could have been lower.

“Today was a little upsetting,” Vongphoumy said. “I had a steady round, but I could have played better. I was driving well, but not putting well.”

Relying on her driver and her accurate tee shots, Vongphoumy was able to keep her score low. Tough greens kept her from playing her best, but she said the course is set-up to play to her strengths.

“The course is not long, so that helps me because I don't hit long,” Vongphoumy said. “The course is also narrow, but I like that because I can control my shots.”

Carding four birdies and three bogeys on the day, Vongphoumy said she is happy with the position she is in heading into the final round.

“It feels pretty good to have a big lead,” Vongphoumy said. “It takes a lot of pressure off of me.”

In second place is Cindy Ha of Demarest, N.J., with a 7-over-par 151. In third place with a 11-over-par 155 is Haley Haught of Austin, Texas.
