HAK USES SHORT GAME TO MAINTAIN LEAD AT THE MIZUNO JUNIOR AT INNISBROOK
Watson holds onto lead after the second round in the Girls Division

PALM HARBOR, Fla. — Shun Yat Hak of Lake Mary, Fla., took the outright lead after shooting an even-par 71 in the second round of the Mizuno Junior at Innisbrook. His 142 tournament total puts him 2 shots ahead of the field. Sally Watson of Bradenton, Fla., remains atop the leaderboard in the Girls Division by one shot after a second-round 2-over-par 72 at Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 16th annual Mizuno Junior at Innisbrook is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club. The tournament field consists of 138 boys and 77 girls, ages 12-18, from 27 states and seven foreign countries. The Boys Division, which was cut to the low-60 players and ties after Saturday's second round, is playing the par-71 Copperhead Course at 7,305 yards, while the Girls Division is competing on the par-70 Osprey North Course, which is playing at 5,911 yards.

Hak, who was tied for the lead after a 1-under-par 70 in the first round, had some problems off the tee but took advantage of his clutch short game. Hak made bogey on two of his first three holes but turned it around with 11 pars and three birdies to finish out the day.

“I struggled hitting greens and fairways, but I saved myself with a lot of up and downs,” said Hak. “My putting was also really good.”

First round co-leader Gavin Hall of Pittsford, N.Y. finished the day at 3-over-par and sits in second with his tournament total of 144. Tied for third with 3-over-par 145s are Davis Lee of Hilton Head Island, S.C., and Byeong-hun An of Bradenton, Fla. After carding 4-over-par 146s, Richard Lamb of South Bend, Ind., and Michael Hebert of Orlando, Fla., round out the top five of the Boys Division.

In the Girls Division, Watson, who will be attending Stanford University in the fall, holds a 1-shot lead for the second straight day and is 1-over-par with a 141 for the tournament. Watson was happy with her round but knows she'll need to improve her iron play to hold the lead in the final round.

“I played pretty solid. I hit 15 greens and 13 fairways,” said Watson. “I did have some trouble with my distance control. It just wasn't what I wanted it to be.”

Doris Chen of Bradenton, Fla., sits alone in second place after an even-par day and a 142 tournament total. In third place, Victoria Tanco of Bradenton, Fla., captured the low round of the day with her 2-under-par 68 to give her a tournament total of 143.
