BARR REMAINS IN LEAD AT HENRY-GRIFFITTS BLUEGRASS JUNIOR INVITATIONAL
Defending champion Wade guides Girls Division into final round


ASHLAND, Ky. - Cale Barr of Versailles, Ky., took sole possession of the lead in the Boys Division with an even par 70 going into the final round of the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational at Bellefonte Country Club. Whitney Wade of Glasgow, Ky., holds a one-stroke lead at 146 over Brittany Lincicome of Seminole, Fla., in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational features 120 players, 93 boys and 27 girls, ages 13-18 from 21 states, including 32 from the state of Kentucky.

Barr, a University of Kentucky signee (68-70—138), carded two birdies on the front and four on the back, including three consecutively on Nos. 10, 11 and 12.

"I would like to win my first AJGA tournament, which hopefully will be tomorrow," the 18-year-old said.
Barr, who entered the second round tied for the lead, has played in the tournament for the previous four years and has finished fourth, third and second.

One shot behind the leader at 139 is Chanin Puntawong of Bradenton, Fla., who carded four birdies including back-to-back birdies on Nos. 17 and 18, and has the low round of the tournament with a 67.

Rounding out the Boys Division leaders are Tarik Can of New York (72-68—140), Will Osborne of Wichita Falls, Texas (69-72—141), Scooter Jefferson of Spring, Texas (73-68—141), Matthew Scytkowski of South Hadley, Mass. (71-70—141), and Jarred Texter of Millersville, Pa. (72-69—141).

Wade, a U.S. Women's Open qualifier and signee for the University of Georgia, said she had a lot of ups and downs through the round, but improved from Wednesday. She shot her second round of 73 on Thursday.

"I hit my driver better today," said the 17-year-old first-team Polo Golf Junior All-American. "Tomorrow I want to shoot under-par and stay focused through the final round."

The remainder of the top three in the Girls Division include Lincicome at 7-over-par 147, and Megan Grehan of Mamaroneck, N.Y., at 8-over-par 148.

Final-round action of the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational will begin on Friday at 7 a.m. For more information on the tournament, contact tournament headquarters at (606) 326-1741.
