BREHM RALLIES TO CLAIM LEAD AT GREENHILLS
Bickerton holds five-stroke edge in Girls Division

LONDON, Ont. - Ryan Brehm of Mt. Pleasant, Mich., stormed back from an opening-round 74 with a 5-under-par 66 to move atop the Boys Division leaderboard at the AJGA Bank of Montreal Future Links Junior at Greenhills. In the Girls Division, Ashley Bickerton of Ottawa, Ont. shot a 2-over-par 73 to establish a five-stroke lead.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Bank of Montreal Future Links Junior at Greenhills features 100 players with boys and girls representing 11 states and three Canadian provinces. Seventy-one Canadians, including 67 juniors from Ontario, are competing in the event.

Brehm, who started the day tied for 19th, recovered from a bogey on No. 1 with birdies on Nos. 2 and 3 and a chip-in for birdie on No. 4 to get to 2-under on the day.

"I putted well and hit fairways today, which gave me a lot of chances," said Brehm, who hit 16 of 18 greens on the day. "I knew I could get that shot back from No. 1 on the par-5 second with a birdie."

Brehm kept it going on No. 8, draining a 50-footer for birdie before adding another on No. 9 to make the turn at 4-under.

The 16-year-old set up two more birdie chances on the back nine, sticking a pitching wedge from 150 yards out to within 15 feet on No. 16 and another pitching wedge on No. 18 to within eight feet of the hole.

"I didn't think I made the putt on No. 18 and started walking towards it, but then it fell in," Brehm said. "I had a lot of fun out there today. I feel pretty good about where I stand. Hopefully tomorrow I can shoot a reasonable number and see how it does."

Brehm enters the final round with a one-stroke advantage over first-round leader Kyle Williamson of Midland, Mich. Williamson carded three birdies on the day en route to a 2-over 73 to move to 141 for the tournament.

Jeff Corner of Corunna, Ont., holds sole possession of third place at 72-70-142. Six players are tied for fourth, six shots off the pace.

After starting her round with a string of pars, Bickerton made her first bogey of the tournament on No. 4 after finding the trees twice, but was able to connect on an 8-footer for bogey to salvage the hole.

"I got into some trouble on a couple of holes today," Bickerton said. "I was able to keep it in play most of the day and just got a couple of bad breaks. I was still pretty solid. I kept the ball in position and used the same gameplan as yesterday."

Bickerton added a birdie on No. 17 with another strong approach to add to her cushion heading into the final round.

Bickerton holds a five-stroke advantage over Joanna Periversoff of London, Ont., who posted the low round in the Girls Division with an even-par 71. Seema Sadekar of Bradenton, Fla., matched Bickerton with a 73 to sit at 148 for the tournament.

Final-round tee times will begin on Friday, August 30 at 7:30 a.m. off the No.1 tee at Greenhills Golf Club.
