Lederhausen holds onto one-stroke lead at Lockton/Capitol Federal Kansas City Junior

KANSAS CITY, Mo. β€” Ryan Zech of Kearney, Mo., carded an even-par 72 to pull ahead by two strokes at the Lockton/Capitol Federal Kansas City Junior. In the Girls Division, Alexandra Lederhausen of Hinsdale, Ill., sits alone in the top spot after a second-round 7-over-par 79.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Lockton/Capitol Federal Kansas City Junior is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at Oakwood Country Club. The tournament field features 74 boys and 24 girls, ages 12-18, from 21 states and Canada. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 6,522 yards, while the Girls Division is playing the course at 6,038 yards.

Zech played another consistent round in Wednesday's soggy conditions, recording four birdies to post a 6-under-par 138 and maintain his position on the leaderboard. Zech will carry a two-stroke lead into the final round and says he hopes to continue his solid play without being too aggressive.

β€œI had a couple of rough holes but that is always going to happen on a course like this,” Zech said. β€œIf you keep your mistakes minimal you can shoot low.”

Ryan Marks of Warrensburg, Mo., and Harry Higgs of Overland Park, Kan., are tied for second place at 4-under-par 140. In fourth is Kevin Gillick of Scottsdale, Ariz., at 3-under-par 141, followed by Ryan Blair of Center Valley, Pa., in fifth at 2-under-par 142.

Lederhausen posted 11 pars and one birdie to finish at a two-day total 6-over-par 150. While not ecstatic about her play, she was happy with her position playing in the rough conditions. Leaderhausen enters the final round of her AJGA career with a one-shot lead.

β€œI want to make birdies,” Lederhausen said. β€œThat is my number one goal.”

Kristina Nhim of Buena Park, Calif., sits one-stroke behind in second at 7-over-par 151. Katie Sylvan of San Diego holds third at 8-over-par 152.
