Jacobs maintains lead in Girls Division by four strokes

NISSWA, Minn. - Minnesota native Patrick Herzog of Red Wing shot an identical second-round score to that of his opening round 72 Wednesday to move into the lead in the Boys Division of the hp Junior Classic at The Pines. Mary Ellen Jacobs of Godfrey, Ill., carded a 4-over-par 76 to remain the Girls Division leader with a two-round total of 148.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the hp Junior Classic at The Pines features 84 players, both boys and girls, representing 21 states with 32 participants hailing from Minnesota.

The 17-year-old Herzog played a second solid round carding two birdies and two bogeys.

"I came in today with the goal of shooting low and staying in contention," Herzog said. "I hit the ball well but it could have been better."

Herzog plans to keep it simple as he heads into the final round as the boys leader.

"The key is to keep the ball in the fairways," Herzog said. "You have to hold every shot together because there's no room for error on this course."

First-round leader Eric Deutsch of Rochester, Minn., shot a 5-over-par 77 to stand in second place while Derrick Whiting of Carlos, Minn., fired the lone-round under par (69) on the day to move into third place. Michael Haverfield of Louisville, Ky., stands alone in fourth with a 74-75-149 total. Robbie Kelley of Minnetonka, Minn., and Chris Baker of Brownstown, Ind., are tied for fifth with a two-round total of 150.

Pacing the Girls Division with a four-stroke lead, Jacobs struggled on the back nine after starting off the No. 10 tee. The 18-year-old Jacobs carded a birdie, a double bogey and three bogeys on the day.

"I lost confidence in my swing," Jacobs said. "I think I played too aggressive on some of the holes, which resulted in a lot of stupid mistakes."

The Illinois native got her game back together to finish under par on the front nine and maintain her lead.

"It's always a confidence boost to be in the lead," Jacobs said. "But there's some added pressure to it. I plan to continue playing the same way hitting fairways and greens."

Rounding out the top three girls are Kelly Weisgarber of Fargo, N.D., and Angela Gauck of Greensburg, Ind., who stand in a tie for second with a two-round total of 159.
Final-round action will run from 7:30 - 9:27 a.m. Thursday off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees at The Pines Course.
