KLUNE ON TOP OF LEADERBOARD AFTER EVEN-PAR PERFORMANCE AT FUTURE LEGENDS
Close race in Girls Division leaves Talley on top at The Legend at Brandybrook

WALES, Wis. — Bradley Klune of Itasca, Ill., stayed consistent Thursday when he recorded an even-par 71 for the second day in a row to claim the lead as his own at the Future Legends. In the Girls Division, Emma Talley of Princeton, Ky., shot a two-day total 8-over-par 150 to take a one-stroke lead.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, Future Legends is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at The Legend at Brandybrook. The 90-player field features players from 14 states and Canada. The Boys Division is playing the par-71 course at 6,794 yards while the Girls Division is playing at 5,955 yards.

Klune, 16, played a consistent round, making par on every hole excluding a birdie on No. 4 and a bogey on No.14. Having never taken the lead into a final round, he finds himself in uncharted territory. His plan for the final round is to stay with what has been working in the first two rounds and work hard to stick to par.

“I felt like I played a flawless round today,” Klune said. “I don't think there is much more that I could have done better. I'm really excited about the way I've played this week.”

After being tied with Klune for the lead after the first round, Michael Sorenson of Hartland, Wis., finds himself two shots back with a 2-over-par 144. In third is Eduardo Chavez of Hillsborough, Calif., with a two-day total of 3-over-par 145. Tied for fourth are Reid Martin of Mukilteo, Wash., Corey Ziedonis of Indianapolis, Ind., and local junior golfer Sam Frank of Oconomowoc, Wis., each having carded a two-day total of 5-over-par 147.

Talley, 14, is no stranger to tough competition, having won her first AJGA event in 2007. Talley's second round was highlighted by a birdie on the par-4 No. 7 when her tee shot fell to within 30 yards of the flagstick. Her second shot hit below the hole and rolled to within four feet, allowing a birdie putt. Birdies have been hard earned during the Future Legends, Talley noted.

“You have to eliminate mistakes on this course,” Talley said. “You need to hit fairways and greens here or you won't play well.”

One stroke behind Talley is Ashley Armstrong of Flossmoor, Ill., who recorded a two-day total of 9-over-par 151. Rounding out the top three are Chessey Thomas of Spokane, Wash., and Simin Feng of Orlando, each having carded a two-day total of 10-over-par 152
