CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — Jordan Spieth of Dallas, carded a 3-under-par 69 in the first round of the Junior All-Star at Jacksonville to lead the Boys Division. In the Girls Division, Shannon Pak of Kenner, La., leads after recording a 3-over-par 75.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Junior All-Star at Jacksonville is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at Paradise Point — Gold Course. The 82-player field features players from 20 states and Canada. The course is being played at 6,885 yards in the Boys Division and 6,021 yards in the Girls Division.

In April, thirteen-year-old Spieth won his first-ever AJGA event — the Junior All-Star at Walnut Creek in Mansfield, Texas — and leads this, his second AJGA event, after five birdies on day one.

“Whenever I made a bogey, I turned it around and got a few 20-footers to fall,” Spieth said. “My goal is three rounds in the 60s, which is a pretty hard goal to accomplish.”

John Varol of Weddington, N.C., and Austin Cody of North Charleston, S.C., shot 2-under-par 70s to finish the day tied for second place. Michael Cromie of Cary, N.C., Davis Womble of High Point, N.C., and Julien Goulet of St-Roch de L'Achigan, Quebec, are tied for fourth place with 1-under-par 71s.

In the Girls Division, 14-year-old Pak made her AJGA debut as the one to catch Tuesday. She chipped in a 30-yard birdie on No. 4 and chipped in another birdie on No. 10.

“I was thinking, ‘Get close and putt once, and I'll get par,'” Pak said. “But it sat on the lip of the hole and dropped in. My competitor had to tell me that it went in.”

Pak said she can stay on top tomorrow by honing her putting and straightening out her iron shots.

Kendall Martindale of Jefferson City, Tenn., shot 6-over-par 78 to finish the day in second place. In third place, Mariana Sims of Bethesda, Md., is four shots back at 7-over-par 79.
