Knoll, Lang and Lee share course record and top spot in Girls Division

TRINITY, Texas - Jonathan Moore of Portland, Ore., carded a 4-under-par 68 to garner the first-round lead at the AJGA TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Whispering Pines. Hwanhee Lee of Cerritos, Calif., Brittany Lang of McKinney, Texas, and Ashley Knoll of The Woodlands, Texas, fired 2-under 70s to share the lead in the Girls Division.

The annual 36-hole Easter Weekend event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, makes its debut at the par-72 Whispering Pines Golf Club. The tournament features a total of 156 boys and girls from 19 states and Canada. Past winners of this event include Bob May, Emilee Klein, Kellee Booth and Grace Park.

The 15-year-old Moore carded five birdies and a bogey to lead a star-studded field that includes four Polo Golf Junior All-Americans.

"I didn't miss a shot on the front nine," Moore said. "I scrambled on the back but I was able to stay focused and make some key putts."

Chasing Moore in second place is Dallas native Tyler Leon. Leon finished the day two shots back after carding a 34-36-70. Honorable mention Polo Golf Junior All-American Ryan Baca of Richmond, Texas, Matthew Ellis of Ponca City, Okla., Rand Arbuckle of College Station, Texas, and Will Dodson of Tulsa, Okla., are tied for third at 1-under 71.

In the Girls Division, Polo Golf Junior All-Americans Lee and Lang joined 15-year-old Knoll with 2-under-70's and a share of the women's course record and the first round lead.

Lee, an honorable mention Polo Golf Junior All-American and winner of two AJGA events, tallied three birdies on the front nine en route to a 3-under 33. Lee hit 14 greens on the day and attributed her performance to consistency off the tee and precise iron play.

"The course was very challenging but rewarding if you kept it in the fairway," Lee said. "I did a good job of hitting greens in regulation. Hopefully tomorrow I can get a few more putts to fall."

Lang, who carded a bogey-free round, is looking for her second career AJGA win, after teaming with Cindy Shin of McKinney, Texas, to win the 2000 AJGA Justin Leonard/Deloitte & Touche Junior Team Championship.

"My key to the round was hitting fairways and greens," said the 15-year-old Lang. "I was playing with confidence coming into this event and hopefully I can put together another solid round tomorrow."

Knoll, who finished fourth in this event last year, played conservative early on in her round turning in a 1-over-par 37 on the front nine. The 15-year-old finished strong on the back nine posting three birdies on her way to a 3-under 33.

"I have worked hard on my game of late and it paid off today," Knoll said. "My goal was to finish in the top five and post two rounds in the 70s. So far I'm off to a good start."

Action will continue on Easter Sunday with tee times running from 7:30-9:18 a.m. in the first wave and 12:00-1:48 p.m. in the second wave.
