LESLIE LEADS BY ONE AT EDS BOYS JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Score of 149 and fewer make the cut, 76 players remain

CORINTH, Texas - Craig Leslie of Spokane, Wash., benefited from an early morning tee time and calm weather conditions en route to carding a 1-under-par 71 during the second round of the EDS Boys Junior Championship. He leads the field, which was cut from 152 players to 76, by one stroke entering the third round.

The 72-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 152 players representing 23 states, Singapore, New Zealand and Canada, and includes 41 Texas natives. It is being held at the par-72 Oakmont Country Club. Past champions of the event include Jim Furyk (1987), David Duval (1989), Tiger Woods (1992), Ty Tryon (1999) and Matthew Rosenfeld (2001).

Leslie, who was in a three-way tie for the lead after the opening round, maintained his position with steady play and a level head. The 17-year-old got off to a rough start with bogeys on his first two holes but did not panic and quickly got things rolling his way.

"I just wanted to make the cut," Leslie said. "It took me a few holes to warm up, but then I started hitting greens and making pars."

Leslie, who started his round on No. 10, did more than make pars. On the 432-yard, par-4 18th, he landed his second shot, a 220-yard 6-iron on the green and then drained the birdie putt to put an end to back-to-back bogeys.

"That hole set the tone for the back side," Leslie said, who didn't card a score worse than par for the remainder of the round.

Leslie (67-71-138) reached the uphill par-5 No. 3 in two setting him up for a 17-foot eagle putt. He slammed it home and then parred out his remaining holes to remain in the lead.

One stroke behind Leslie, with two-day totals of 139, are Seung Su Han of Chino Hills, Calif., Adam Cohan of Wayne, Pa., and Zack Miller of San Rafael, Calif.

Han, who won the AJGA Chrysler Boys Invitational earlier this year, had four birdies but said he was disappointed with his putting.

"The greens were better today, but I couldn't putt," Han said. "I didn't make anything long."

Cohan said he too was disappointed in missing some par putts, but was pleased overall with his score and position.

"The greens firmed up today," Cohan said. "Fortunately I made enough birdies out there to make up for my mistakes."

Miller was tied with Leslie for the lead after the first round but fell one back after an even-par round of 72.

"Today was just different," Miller said. "I used a lot of 3-woods off the tee to keep the ball in the fairway and out of the rough. On this course you can get away with a lot of 3-woods off the tee."

Third-round action begins off the No. 1 and 10 tees with tee times from 8-9:45 a.m.
