HONECK MAINTAINS FOUR-SHOT ADVANTAGE
Rollins six-shot lead cut in half by charging Underwood

AUSTIN, TEXAS - Unlike Tuesday, Creighton Honeck of Austin, Texas, woke up in plenty of time this morning to hit practice balls before he fired an even-par 72 and maintained a four-shot lead at the PING Harvey Penick Junior.

In the Girls Division, Ashley Rollins, also of Austin, Texas, saw her lead split in half after carding a 3-over-par 74. Mallorie Underwood of Montgomery, Texas, shot a solid round of 2-under-par 69 to close to within three shots at the end of moving day.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the PING Harvey Penick Junior consists of 120 players from 16 states, including 98 from Texas, and Mexico. The tournament is being contested at The Hills Country Club, Flintrock Falls Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus. The course plays to a par-72 for the boys and par-71 for the girls

After carding the only sub-70 round in the Boys Division in the first round, Honeck came out firing again, recording three consecutive birdies on Nos. 5,6 and 7. At that point, it appeared that Honeck might run away with the tournament. However, bogeys on the final two holes dropped him to even-par for the round, and in the meantime, closer to the rest of the field.

"I was hitting the ball really close (to the flag), hitting the ball really good, and putting really well on the front nine," Honeck said.

Honeck holds a four-shot lead over Jeffrey Frye of Palestine, Texas, who matched Honeck second-round score of even-par 72. Honeck said he believes that it will take another solid round to claim victory at the Flintrock Falls Course.

"I want to try to get under-par (Thursday), but if I shoot even par I think I'll be sitting pretty good," Honeck said.

Three players are locked in a tie for third place, five shots behind Honeck, including Lance Lopez of Fresno, Texas, Michael Randle and Brian Noonan of Austin, Texas, all of who carded rounds of 1-over-par 73.

Although the margin separating first and second place in the Boys Division remained consistent, the same cannot be said for the Girls Division. Underwood, who recently teamed up with Ashley Knoll to win the Justin Leonard/Deloitte & Touche Junior Team Championship, fired a 2-under-par 69 to close to within three shots of Rollins. Rollins followed up a first-round 69 with a three-over par 74 on the second day.

"The driver was definitely getting me into trouble (Wednesday), that was the main cause of the problem," Rollins said. "My putting was not as solid today as it was (Tuesday), unfortunately. But, that's the way it goes, you can't always make (the putts)."

Another competitor making a solid push toward the top of the Girls Division leaderboard was Lauren Espinosa of Irving, Texas, who carded an even-par 71 in the second round. Espinosa, who trails Rollins by five shots, was the runner-up last week at the Randall Parker San Antonio Shootout presented by Parker's Express.

Final-round tee times will begin at 7 a.m. on Thursday and continue until 12:51 p.m. For more information on the PING Harvey Penick Junior, contact AJGA tournament headquarters at (512) 263-6090.
