GREENSBORO, N.C. — After three rounds of play at Forest Oaks Country Club, Drew Kittleson of Scottsdale, Ariz., leads the FootJoy Boys Invitational by one stroke. Kittleson carded a 70, making him 8-under-par for the tournament.

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. After Thursday's round the field was cut down to 62 players with the cut line at 8-over-par, 224.

Kittleson, winner of the 2005 Heather Farr Classic and a second-team Rolex Junior All-American, made five birdies, three of which were on hole Nos. 9, 10 and 11.

“I putted really well,” said Kittleson. “The key for Friday will be hitting fairways if I can hit those I can make birdies.”

One shot behind Kittleson is Peter Uihlein of Bradenton, Fla. Uihlein shot a 5-under-par 67 to move to 7-under-par for the tournament. Uihlein started his round strong chipping in on hole No. 3 and following it up with birdies on hole Nos. 5 and 6.

“The first nine I just had momentum,” said Uihlein. “This tournament has a good field so you definitely have to step up your game, be patient and let things happen. You can't force it.”

Just behind Uihlein, holding third place is Wes Roach of Knoxville, Tenn., who shot 1-under-par 71 to have a total score of 210. In fourth place is Andrew Yun of Tacoma, Wash., at 5-under-par for the tournament.

Tied for fifth at 4-under-par are Chesson Hadley of Raleigh, N.C., Rickie Fowler of Murrieta, Calif., and Thomas Buran of Scottsdale, Ariz. Tied for eighth at 3-under-par are Cody Gribble of Dallas, Mu Hu of Shen Zhen, China, Christopher DeForest of Cottekill, N.Y., Hunter Slatton of Tuscaloosa, Ala., Bud Cauley of Jacksonville, Fla., and Spencer Cole of Greer, S.C.
