McDonald-Smith Takes Five-Stroke Lead into Final Round at Lessing's AJGA Classic
Lippetz holds grasp on lead by three strokes at Long Island National Golf Club

Riverhead, N.Y. — After a personal best of 65 in the first round, Xander McDonald-Smith of Rockaway Park, N.Y., holds his spot atop the leaderboard with 2-over-par 73 Wednesday. First-round leader, Jordan Lippetz of Bradenton, Fla., continues her lead in the Girls Division with a 3-over-par 74.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Lessing's AJGA Classic is a 54-hole stroke play event held at Long Island National Golf Club. The field features 74 boys and 22 girls, ages 12-18, from 15 states Canada and Thailand. The par-71 course is playing at 6,776 yards in the Boys Division and 6,030 yards in the Girls Division.

Compared to Tuesday's first round, McDonald-Smith said, “Today I feel like I hit the ball the same. I just didn't make as many putts as yesterday or get in a zone or anything.”

McDonald-Smith birdied the par-5 10th for a second time to post a tournament total of 4-under-par 138 and said his focus going into the final round is to stick to his game plan with one shot at a time and to just have fun.

Behind McDonald-Smith are Michael Chen of Bradenton, Fla. and Theo Humphrey of Greenwich, Conn. at 1-over-par 143. Tied for fourth are Stephen Pastore of Greenwich, Conn., Brian Tohir of New Canaan, Conn., and Daniel Myers of Ridgefield, Conn., at 2-over-par 144.

Sinking a 30-foot putt on the par-5 No. 18 for birdie, Lippetz came back with birdies on both back-nine par 5s to finish with a 2-over-par 144 tournament total.

“That closed my round out good and gave me confidence for tomorrow,” she said.

Behind Lippetz at 5-over-par 147 is Courtney Hooton of Del Mar, Calif., Hanu Ku of Basking Ridge, N.J. and Daffodil Sanchez of Mesa, Ariz. are tied for third at 152.
