AURORA, Ore. — After one round of play at the AJGA Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series Championship, three Californians, Sihwan Kim of La Mirada, Daniel Miller of Santa Maria, and Alex Resurreccion of Long Beach, fired 69s to lead the Boys Division. Ami Nakagawa of Osaka, Japan, controls the Girls Division by one-stroke.

The 54-hole national golf tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 77 boys and girls (13-15 year olds) representing 26 states, Canada and Japan. To qualify for this season-ending championship, the participants needed to garner top finishes in 2003 Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series events.

Coming off a win at the AJGA PING Phoenix Junior Championship, Kim recorded four birdies to finish with a 2-under-par 69 in the opening round. Kim found success on both nines, finishing 1-under-par on both the front and back nines.

“My shots were good, but the greens were fast and I struggled with my putting,” Kim said. “I didn’t have any really good shots, but I didn’t have any really bad shots either.”

After making a 40-foot birdie putt on No. 1, Miller kept up the charge with a birdie on No. 3 and an eagle on the 516-yard, par-5 seventh hole.

Miller hit driver off the tee, and an 8-iron left him 90-yards shy of the hole.

“I hit my sand wedge well,” Miller said. “The ball hit the green, took a high hop and dropped right in the hole.”

Adding his name to the list of contenders in the Boys Division, Resurreccion carded seven birdies to finish the first round. The 2006 high school graduate fired an impressive 4-under-par 31 on the front nine.

Rounding out the top five in the Boys Division are Jonathan Khan of Tucson, Ariz., and Kevin O’Connell of Raleigh, N.C. The two are tied for fourth after finishing with opening round 70s.

In other highlights in the Boys Division, Jared Shepherd of Kingwood, Texas, provided the Championship’s first hole-in-one on the 122-yard par-3 No. 6.

Nakagawa finished the day with two birdies to lead the Girls Division heading into the second round. After a 4-over-par performance on her first nine, she got in a groove after the turn. With only one bogey on her last nine holes, Nakagawa captured the lead by garnering two birdies on her the last three holes.

Alina Lee of Bradenton, Fla., trails Nakagawa by one stroke with a 75, while fellow Japan native Yuki Sakurai of Kyoto, sits at third with a 77.

Tied for fourth with 78s, Kathryn Detlefsen of Eagan, Minn., and Ashley Lance of Franklin, Tenn., round out the top-five in the Girls Division.

Second-round action begins Sunday at 8 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees. The tournament concludes Monday with final-round tee times beginning at 7:30 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees.
