PALM HARBOR, Fla. — Windy conditions made for tough competition Friday at the first round of the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Innisbrook hosted by Sean O'Hair. On the Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club Copperhead course, Jack Maguire of St. Petersburg, Fla., and Tae Wan Lee of Orlando, Fla., pulled ahead of the pack firing 1-under-par 70. On the North Course Lina Aquillon of Bogota, Colombia and Annie Dulman of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., lead the Girls Division going into the second round both with even-par 70.
Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Innisbrook hosted by Sean O'Hair is a 54-hole stroke play competition played on the par- 71 Copperhead and the par- 70 North Course at Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club. The event features 135 boys and 72 girls, ages 12-18, from 27 states and 16 countries and Puerto Rico. The Boys Division played the Copperhead Course at 7,325 yards while the Girls Division played the North Course at 5,800 yards.
Lee finds himself in a very similar position in the lead heading into the second day of the tournament.
“This is my second time playing in this event and I was in the lead last year at this time too,” Lee said. “This tournament is the biggest AJGA event, so to be on top of the leader group feels good going into the second round.”
Maguire is on a hot streak coming off a successful week at the AJGA Junior at Savannah Quarters.
“I'm playing really well right now after finishing second at Savannah last week I am motivated to get a win” Maguire said. “This weekend I'm just trying to keep it at par and get a comfortable lead going into the last day.”
Not far off the lead, Ethan Wagner of Port Orange, Fla., and Theo Humphrey of Greenwich, Conn., trail by one carding even-par 71. James Yoon of Bradenton, Fla., Thomas Walsh of High Point, N.C., Jake McBride of Hartville, Ohio and Ryan Cole of Mount Airy, Md., are all tied for fifth coming in with 1-over-par 72.
At the North Course, Dulman shares the lead with Aguillon who had a lot of success getting up-and-down to save par.
“I was leaving myself less than three feet on my chips when I missed a green,” Aguillon said. “It made things a lot easier.”
Sarah Schmelzel of Phoenix, and Cindy Ha of Demarest, N.J., trail the leaders in a tie for third carding 1-over-par 71.
