Frasier leads at 3-under-par 69at Oak Valley Golf Club

BEAUMONT, Calif.— Chan Kim of Honolulu carded eight birdies during the first round of the TomatoBank Southern California Classic to lead the tournament at 7-under-par 65. Danielle Frasier of Encinitas, Calif., leads the Girls Division after Tuesday's round at 3-under-par 69 at the Oak Valley Golf Club.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the TomatoBank Southern California Classic is a 54-hole stroke play event featuring 101 boys and 42 girls ages 12-18. Nine states and four foreign countries are represented, with 117 juniors from California. The event is being staged on the par-72 Oak Valley Golf Club course with boys tees set at 6,894 yards and girls tees at 6,079 yards.

Kim, who had only one bogey on his 10th hole, says he developed his momentum early in the round by trusting his instinct and learning from his mistakes.

“I worked on a couple of swing changes with my coach before the tournament,” Kim said. “I just decided to trust my adjustments today and it really worked out great.”

In the Boys Division, Diwen Chen of Coto De Caza, Calif., holds second place at 5-under-par 67. Nick Lerner of Playa del Rey, Calif., is in third place at 3-under-par 69, and tied for fourth are Nicholas Losole III of Scottsdale, Ariz., and Jordan Epstein of Carlsbad, Calif., at 2-under-par 70.

Frasier, who said she scrambled during Tuesday's round, fired four birdies and one bogey on the day to lead the Girls Division at 3-under-par 69. She said she got her momentum on No. 12 after sinking a 20 foot putt for par followed by three birdies to finish the round.

“My goal is to shoot under par through the tournament,” said Frasier. “Tomorrow my strategy is to hit more accurate approach shots so I don't have to rely so much on my putting.”

Tzu-Chi Lin of Hacienda Heights, Calif., is in second place at 2-under-par 70 and Victoria Sungmin Park of Irvine, Calif., holds third place at even-par 72.
