Padova remains Boys Division leader by two strokes
Hoang takes the lead with a 1-over-par 73

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Austin Padova of Hudson, Fla., remains the Boys Division leader by two strokes after scoring a second-round 1-under-par 71 to total 4-under-par 140. Jessica Hoang of North Augusta, S.C., carded a 1-over-par 73 to take the lead at 2-over-par 146 heading into the final round.

The E-Z-GO Vaughn Taylor Championship presented by Electrolux is a 54-hole tournament conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Jones Creek Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. The event features 72 boys and 23 girls, ages 12-18, from 17 states and six countries. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 6,818 yards, while the Girls Division is playing the course at 6,160 yards.

Padova had a tough beginning to his second round, but gained confidence after a birdie on No. 4 and an eagle on No. 5.

“My round was very up and down, but I feel like it was a pretty solid score for the day and I had a good comeback,” Padova said. “After the first two holes, I was 4-over; I had a quadruple on the second hole. Two holes later, I had a birdie and eagle back-to-back, so that was a big confidence booster.”

Richard Hubbard of Mt. Pleasant, S.C., is in second place at 2-under-par 142. Tied for third at 2-over-par 146 are Meechai Padungsiriseth of Bradenton, Fla., Anthony Alex of Wayne, N.J., Prem Samritpricha of Thailand, and Joseph Lewis of Savannah, Ga.

This year, Hoang has had a second place finish at the Golf Pride Junior Classic and a third place finish at the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior All-Star at Château Élan. With three birdies during the second round attributing to a three-shot lead, Hoang plans on continuing her successful mentality into the final round.

“My mentality going into today was just to try and relax and play my own game,” Hoang said. “Abby [Newton] and I kind of went back and forth throughout the front nine, so I just tried to relax after I had a double bogey on No. 7 and just play smart.”

Rachel Dai of Suwanee, Ga., and Abby Newton of Katy, Texas, are tied for second at 5-over-par 149.
