BELDEN TAKES ONE STROKE LEAD IN BOYS DIVISION WITH 5-UNDER-PAR 67
Grehan leads Girls Division after first round with even-par 72 at Hawk Pointe

WASHINGTON, N.J. - Brian Belden of Emmaus, Pa., made four birdies and an eagle on his way to taking the lead in the Boys Division after the first round of the AJGA Marsh Junior at Hawk Pointe. Megan Grehan carded an even-par 72 to emerge as the leader in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 54-hole tournament features 100 boys and girls, ages 13-18, representing 16 states. The 14th annual event is being played at the Hawk Point Golf Club for the second straight year.

"I hit the ball well today. My wedges weren't as good but I was rolling the 15-footers well," Belden said.

The 16-year-old is coming off of his first AJGA win at the AJGA Steel City Junior Classic in Greensburg, Pa., July 21-24.

"I was feeling pretty good after No. 2," Belden said. "I pulled my drive in the fescue and hit a great shot for an easy birdie."

Belden finished with birdies on Nos. 2, 10, 17 and 18, and an eagle on No. 7. His only bogey of the day was on No. 16.

Grehan enters the week after competing at the AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship last week where she finished in a tie for 22nd.

"I'm playing well but I should have played better," Grehan said. I missed three of four birdie putts within eight feet, but I was hitting my irons and chipping really well."

The 14-year-old Grehan had birdies on Nos. 15 and 17.

"I just need to come back tomorrow and play the same way I did today and hit a few more putts," Grehan said.

One stroke behind Belden with a 4-under-par is Brent Herlihy of Glens Falls, N.Y. Herlihy, who will be playing at Princeton in the fall, who picked up an early double-bogey but followed it up with five birdies and an eagle to finish the round with a 68.

"I was hitting the ball great. The course is short and soft so I was able to use my short irons a lot today," Herlihy said.

Minou Pak of Princeton, N.J., and Kyle Bilodeau of Manchester, Conn., finished in a tie for third with 3-under-par 69s while Jarrod Page of Pylesville, Md., Nick Feinberg of Cooperstown, N.Y., and Greg Rodgers of Phoenix, Md., finished in a tie for fifth with 2-under-par 70s.

Tiffany Tavee of Gilbert, Ariz., and Kelly Louth of Victoria, Texas round out the top-three in the Girls Division with 73s.

The second round will begin with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the Hawk Pointe Golf Club.
