Leffew leads Boys Division after first round at the Aspen Junior Golf Classic
Ko leads Girls Division heading into the second round

ASPEN, Colo. — Jake Leffew of Vero Beach, Fla., leads the Boys Division after carding a 2-under-par 69 in the first round of the Aspen Junior Golf Classic. In the Girls Division, Naomi Ko of Victoria, British Columbia also shot a 2-under-par 69 to lead by six strokes.

The Aspen Junior Golf Classic is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the Aspen Golf Club in Aspen, Colo. The tournament field consists of 24 girls and 72 boys, ages 12-18, from Canada and 11 states, including 24 from Colorado. The Boys Division played the par-71 course 7,046 yards and the Girls Division played at 5,955 yards.

Playing in his first open event with the AJGA, Leffew started hot by sinking three birdies in the first six holes.

“Getting off to a quick start is a huge asset when playing a golf course such as this,” Leffew said. “On the first hole I had a solid drive down the middle, a decent wedge shot to about 15 feet away from the pin, and made the putt.”

Harrison Murphy of McKinney, Texas is alone in second place with an even-par 71. Rounding out the top five in a four-way tie for third is Max Alcorn of Poway, Calif., Michael Hodson of Amarillo, Texas, Cole Cunningham of Centennial, Colo., and Josh Gardella of Littleton, Colo., at 1-over-par 72.

In the Girls Division, Ko has a commanding lead heading into the second round. After finishing the front nine 1-over-par, she countered on the back nine with three birdies and six pars. At 14-years-old, she is one of the youngest players in the event and hopes to keep composed throughout the rest of the championship.

“Whatever happens, I want to stay calm throughout the entire round,” said Ko, “even if I get a bogey.”

Kathleen Scavo of Benicia, Calif., sits in second place at 4-over-par 75. In a three-way tie for third at 5-over-par 76 is Hanna Lee of Chandler, Ariz., Kelly McGovern of The Woodlands, Texas, and Claudia Davis of Greenwood Village, Colo.
