KOPSICK FIRES 67 TO TAKE LEAD AT REDSTONE GOLF CLUB
Gribble, Hoffmann one stroke back at three-under par

HUMBLE, Texas β€” Kyle Kopsick of Lake Bluff, Ill., fired a second-round 5-under-par 67, the low round of the tournament, to take a one-shot lead heading into Monday's final round at the Houston Boys Invitational at Redstone presented by HP and Administaff. Cody Gribble of Dallas, and Morgan Hoffmann of Saddlebrook, N.J., sit one shot back at 3-under-par.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Houston Boys Invitational at Redstone presented by HP and Administaff is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at Redstone Golf Club's Tournament Course, home of the PGA TOUR's Shell Houston Open. The 78-player field features 15 players from Texas and 20 Rolex Junior All-Americans. In all, 19 states and eight foreign countries are represented. The par-72 layout is being played at 7,376 yards.

Kopsick stands alone at the top of the leaderboard, but his second round almost didn't happen. On his way to the course, a flat tire delayed his trip and he arrived just 25 minutes prior to his tee time. Despite the frantic morning, Kopsick carded six birdies on the day and posted a 73-67-140 two-day total.

β€œI got off to a good start and made a lot of solid pars,” said Kopsick, who has signed a National Letter of Intent to play at Auburn in the fall. β€œI made a lot of putts coming in and made birdies when I had the opportunity.”

Hoffmann and Gribble had leads during the second round, but each player hit their approach shots in the water on No. 18, leading to double bogeys. Gribble finished the round at 2-under-par 70, while Hoffmann, the first-round leader, recorded an even-par 72.

β€œI'm disappointed in my finish, but it's in the past already so you can't really think about it or get mad,” Hoffmann said of his double-bogey finish. β€œIt wasn't that bad of a swing, so I just need to play well tomorrow.”

Two-time Rolex Junior Player of the Year Peter Uihlein of Bradenton, Fla., and Sean Einhaus of Borken, Germany, are tied for fourth at even-par 144, four shots behind Kopsick. Alex Kang of Oak Park Calif., and Cory Whitsett of Houston, are tied for sixth at 1-over-par 145.
