CAULEY AND FIELDS SHARE ONE-STROKE LEAD AT FOOTJOY BOYS INVITATIONAL
Twenty-seven players under-par at Forest Oaks Country Club

GREENSBORO, N.C. -After one round of play at the FootJoy Boys Invitational, Jack Fields of Southern Pines, N.C., and Bud Cauley of Jacksonville, Fla., are tied for the lead after carding 6-under-par 66s. They hold a one-shot lead going into Wednesday's second round.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the FootJoy Boys Invitational is a 72-hole tournament being held at Forest Oaks Country Club. Twenty-five states, Australia, Canada, Japan, Slovenia and Taiwan are represented in the 99-player field. Included in the field are 32 Rolex Junior All-Americans. Forest Oaks Country Club, playing to 7,280 yards is home to the PGA TOUR's Chrysler Classic of Greensboro.

Fields made seven birdies to close the day tied for the lead including a three-hole stretch on hole Nos. 8, 9 and 10. Fields, who won the Bridgestone Golf Junior Classic in May, solidified his round by hitting every green.

Cauley finished strong making three of his seven birdies in the last six holes. Cauley, who won the 2006 Mizuno Junior at Chateau Elan and was a 2005 honorable mention Rolex Junior All-American, took advantage of the par-5s and birdied all four of them.

Cauley said that his iron shots were the key to his round.

“Iron shots are something I've been working on,” said Cauley. “With this course you've got to put the ball in play and just stay in the fairway.”

The competition is close with Rickie Fowler of Murrieta, Calif., Mu Hu of Shen Zhen, China, Thomas Buran of Scottsdale, Ariz., Major Forbess of Jacksonville, Fla., Wes Roach of Knoxville, Tenn., and Jonathan Khan of Tucson, Ariz., all one shot back at 67. Just behind them in ninth place is Andrew Yun of Tacoma, Wash., who carded a 4-under-par 68. Tied for 10th are Chesson Hadley of Raleigh, N.C., Hunter Slatton of Tuscaloosa, Ala., Gregor Main of Danville, Calif., Gregor Slabe of Ljubljana, Slovenia, Cody Gribble of Dallas, and Rolex Junior Player of the Year Peter Uihlein of Bradenton, Fla., at 69.

“This is a strong playing field but the solid competition makes it more fun,” said Fields. “I just need to be consistent with the putter and hit the ball solid.”
