WALLACE LEADS TIGHT FIELD AFTER FIRST ROUND AT BOLTON

Anai takes control of Girls Division

  

BOLTON, Mass. – Jeff Wallace of Franklin, Mass., opened a one shot lead in the Boys Division after firing a 2-under-par 70 in the first round of the Fidelity Investments Junior Classic.

               

Lala Anai of Lexington, Mass., shot a 1-over-par 73 to take command of the Girls Division over Catherina Wang of Orlando, Fla.

               

The Fidelity Investments Junior Classic is a 54-hole event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at The International – Pines Course. The event features 98 of the nation’s premier junior golfers, ages 12-18, from 14 states and Canada.

               

Aside from a double-bogey on hole No. 15, Wallace played bogey-free golf and fired a 1-under-par 35 on both sides of the course.

               

“I love this course,” Wallace said. “I pretty much ripped driver all day.

               

“I hit a snag on No. 15, but other than that I played well.  It’s fun being out here with some of the best juniors in America.”

               

Cornelius Carroll of Windermere, Fla., and Cody Paladino of Kensington, Conn., are tied for second after firing rounds of 1-under par 71. Matt Giftos of Nashua, N.H., is in fourth at even-par.  Seven others are tied for fifth at 1-over-par, including Warren West of Chestertown, Md., who used a 4-iron on the 202-yard, par-3 No. 16, to record a hole-in-one.

               

Anai enjoyed the luxury of three birdies scattered throughout her round to also take a one shot lead into Wednesday’s second round.

               

“My short irons were good,” Anai said. “My long putts were also good, but my short putts were terrible. I need to putt better overall and finish strong on No. 18.”

               

Behind Anai and Wang, Seung-Hyun Lee of Kennett Square, Pa., shot a 3-over-par 75 and is in third place.
