LINCICOME SETS NEW GRAYHAWK RECORD TO SHARE FIRST WITH KNOLL IN GIRLS DIVISION
Lefthanded Harman holds on to lead in Boys Division at Phil Mickelson's home course

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Brittany Lincicome of Seminole, Fla., established a new course record Sunday at Grayhawk Golf Club's Raptor Course to move into a tie for the lead with Ashley Knoll of The Woodlands, Texas, in the Girls Division of the Thunderbird International Junior. Brian Harman of Savannah, Ga., maintained the lead in the Boys Division as he posted a second-round score of even-par 72.

The 54-hole stroke play event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 84 players from 20 states, Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand and Sweden. Sixty-six members of the Polo Golf Junior All-America teams are entered.

The 17-year-old Lincicome shot a round of 5-under-par 67 to bring her 36-hole total to 141. Her day included seven birdies to offset two bogeys. Knoll, 18, fired a second-round 71 to also stand at 3-under-par 141. In third place is Hannah Jun of San Diego, Calif., who carded a second-round 73 and is at 1-under-par 143 with 18 holes remaining. Scottsdale's own Amanda Blumenhurst is in fourth place at even-par 144. Day one leader Sarah Kemp of Melbourne, Australia, shares fifth place with Whitney Myers of East Berlin, Pa., at 1-over-par 145.

"It feels great to break the course record, especially after yesterday's round," Lincicome said. "I was just trying to break par, but I kept knocking it close. I kept putting my wedges and 9-irons within five feet."

The duo leads the field by two strokes and will face off in the final girls' group of Monday's action, beginning play from the No. 1 tee at 8:21 a.m. Lincicome aims for her second straight victory after winning the AJGA Taylor-Made-adidas Golf Junior at Chateau Elan last month, while Knoll looks for her second career victory.

"I'm just going to play the course and try to take it low tomorrow," said Knoll, who has signed a National Letter-of-Intent with Oklahoma State. "I'm not going to worry about what the other players shoot, but just try to beat the course."

A lefty for the new generation continues to lead the Boys Division as Brian Harman moved 18 holes closer to etching his name on the Phil Mickelson Trophy. The 16-year-old from Savannah, Ga., totaled a second-round 72 and is at 6-under-par 138 after 36 holes. Mickelson serves as the honorary tournament chairman for the Thunderbird International Junior, which is being contested at the PGA TOUR professional's home course.

His lone blemish on the day came on the 502 yard, par-5 seventh hole where he made double bogey. Despite taking a seven, Harman still made a masterful shot out of the desert just left of the fairway between trees and cacti.

"I was just trying to hack it out and hit it into the fairway," the second-team Polo Golf Junior All-American said about his second shot on the seventh hole. "I got a couple bad breaks out there today so I'm very happy to walk away with a 72."

Trailing Harman in second place is Song Jeon of Ocala, Fla., who used a 68 to move into second place at 5-under-par 139 for the tournament. Anthony Kim from La Quinta, Calif., occupies third place at 3-under-par 141. Joshua Wooding of Riverside, Calif., and Jon Curran of Hopkinton, Mass., are tied for fourth place at 2-under-par 142.

The final round of the Thunderbird International Junior gets underway Monday at 7 a.m. from the first and 10th tees on the Raptor Course at Grayhawk Golf Club.
