Jutanugarn sisters dominate the leaderboard at Rolex Girls Junior Championship

Ariya Jutanugarn battles wind gusts to lead at
Somerby Golf Club

Byron, Minn. — Ariya Jutanugarn of Bangkok, Thailand fired a low first-round score of 5-under-par 67 at the Rolex Girls Junior Championship, while her sister Moriya sits one stroke back in second.

The Rolex Girls Junior Championship is a 72-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the Somerby Golf Club in Byron, Minn. The tournament field includes 95 girls, ages 12-18, from 17 states, Puerto Rico, and seven foreign countries (Japan, Colombia, Mexico, Argentina, the Philippines, Thailand and China). The Girls Division is playing the course at 6,122 yards.

Jutanugarn credited her successful round to her approach shots and short putts. She made a total of six birdies, two of which were back to back on Nos. 7 and 8.

“It feels good to be the leader today. Last year I was the leader for the first and second round, but the third round I didn't perform too well,” Jutanugarn said. I am going to have the same plan for tomorrow. "I am going to continue to try and make short putts. Tomorrow is going to be better than today.”

Moriya sits in second place with a score of 4-under-par 68. Kyung Kim of Chandler, Ariz., Yu Liu of Beijing, China, Victoria Tanco of Argentina, and Samantha Wagner of Windermere, Fla., are tied for third place each with a score of 3-under-par 69.

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.

The second round of the Rolex Girls Junior Championship tee times will begin at 7 a.m. off the No.1 tee. For more information about the Rolex Girls Junior Championship, please contact AJGA Tournament Headquarters at (507) 775-3750.
