NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Holding his position at the top of the Boys Division, Alex Green of Fairhope, Ala., finished the second round with a 2-under-par 70 for a 3-under-par 141. Anna Sofia Bohmer of Cali, Colombia, finished the second round to move to 4-over-par 148.
Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Music City Junior presented by Toyota is a 54-hole stroke play competition played on the par-72 course at Richland Country Club. The event features 72 boys and 24 girls, ages 12-18, from 20 states and two countries. The Boys Division played the course at 6,848 yards while the Girls Division played the course at 5,972 yards.
Alex Green began the second round firing three birdies on the front nine, finishing 2-under-par 70 to retain his lead atop the leaderboard.
“I hit the ball fairly well once again and putting was more on today,” Green said. “Everything was just a little better than yesterday…I'm going to come out, have fun tomorrow, and hopefully try to win this thing.”
Following Green, Brooks Thomas of Chattanooga, Tenn., sits in second at 2-under-par 142. Jack Story of Dickson, Tenn., is in third at even-par 144. Garrison Hogan of Brentwood, Tenn., David Mackey of Bogart, Ga., Ben Wolcott of Burns, Tenn., Connor Nelson of Roscoe, Ill., and Ben Reeves of Knoxville, Tenn., are tied for fourth at 1-over-par 145.
Anna Sofia Bohmer of Cali, Colombia, shot a 1-under-par 71 today taking the Girls Division lead at 4-over-par 148. She attributes her success today to her patience and being able to hit the greens.
“I had two birdies on No. 1 and No. 10,” Bohmer said, “so I had birdie starts on both nines. I only bogeyed two holes so that was nice. My putting was not great but my birdies were very close, only about 4 feet away.”
Sophia Schubert of Oak Ridge, Tenn., finished with a 2-over-par 74 today falling a stroke behind Bohmer at 5-over-par 149. Aliea Clark of Carlsbad, Calif., carded a 1-over-par 73 to stand in third with an 8-over-par 152 heading into the final round.
