GROTE HOLDS SECOND-ROUND LEAD IN AJGA DEBUT
Turner leads Girls Division at 4-over-par

RINGGOLD, Ga. - Travis Grote, of Birmingham, Ala., posted a 4-under-par 66 to take the second-round lead of the Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic. Marci Turner of Tompkinsville, Ky., shot a 71 to take the top spot in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic features 101 players, 78 boys and 13 girls, ages 13-18, from 22 states, including 24 from the state of Georgia.

"I wasn't expecting to shoot this well today," said 17-year-old Grote. "I played good and stayed patient throughout the round."

This week is the first time Grote has fired back-to-back rounds under 70 in tournament play. He finished with six birdies on the day, including a 10-footer on No. 16, to put him at 6-under-par 134.

Mu Hu of Bradenton, Fla., Greg Forest of Palm City Fla., and Ben Spickard, of Roswell, Ga., are tied for second at 136 going into the final round of play. Rounding out the top five in the Boys Division is Kaylor Thomas of Fort Payne, Ala., at 67-72—139.

In the Girls Division, Turner leads with a 2-over-par 142 and sits two strokes ahead of Jennifer Davis of Seymour, Tenn.

"Today I was trying to bounce back from the front nine, and I finished really solid on the back," the 17-year-old Turner said.

For the final round, her goal is to make 18 pars, stay focused and be aggressive.

Rounding out the top three in the Girls Division is Liebelei Lawrence of Bradenton, Fla. (73-74—147).

The Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic will conclude on Thursday with the first tee time set for 7 a.m. For more information on the Ringgold Telephone Company Junior Classic, contact tournament headquarters at (706) 935-4355.
