SMITH CARDS 2-UNDER-PAR 70 TO LEAD JUNIOR ALL-STAR AT GRAND NATIONAL
Chow, Martindale share Girls Division lead

OPELIKA, Ala. — Tyler Smith of Brentwood, Tenn., took the lead in the Boys Division at the Junior All-Star at Grand National Tuesday after firing a 2-under-par 70. Marissa Chow of Honolulu and Kendall Martindale of Jefferson City, Tenn., carded 1-over-par 73s to lead the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, Junior All-Star at Grand National is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at the Grand National Golf Course — Lake Course. The 97-player field features players from 25 states and Canada. The course is being played at 6,759 yards for the Boys Division and 5,792 yards for the Girls Division.

Smith, who is playing in his second Junior All-Star event, had six birdies for the round and said he took advantage of his accuracy throughout the day.

“I just kept the ball in play and out of the trees,” he said. “I hit the greens and kept making 10-foot putts.”

Justin Cho of Norcross, Ga., Chris Contreras of San Antonio, Landon Lyons of Baton Rouge, La., and Eric Broadfoot of Muscle Shoals, Ala., are all tied for second after shooting 1-under-par 71s.

In the Girls Division, Chow said she shook off early problems on the putting green before today's round.

“Before I went out, I couldn't putt at all,” she said. “I stayed confident, didn't think about it and made them when I needed to.”

Martindale said she was happy with today's round, but knew she could shoot better.

“Tomorrow, I will just try to beat my own score,” she said. “If I do that, the rest will take care of itself.”

Emma Talley of Princeton, Ky., is in sole possession of third place after shooting a 5-over-par 77.
