Chen and Hartman Share 36-Hole Lead in AJGA Sarasota Junior
Luo and Ramsey tied for lead in Girls Division at the Ritz-Carlton Members Golf Club

SARASOTA, Fla. — Michael Chen of Bradenton, Fla., carded a 5-under-par 67 and Zach Hartman of St. Simons Island, Ga., fired a 4-under-par 68 to share the lead in the AJGA Sarasota Junior at 4-under-par 140. Ashlan Ramsey of Bradenton, Fla., and Linda Luo of Lakewood Ranch, Fla., are both leading in the Girls Division at 2-under-par 142.

The AJGA Sarasota Junior is a 54-hole tournament conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the Ritz-Carlton Members Golf Club. The event features 63 boys and 21 girls, ages 12-18, from 11 states, China, Argentina, Paraguay, Columbia, Chile, Brazil, South Africa and the Philippines. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 7,009 yards while the Girls Division is playing the course at 6,050 yards.

Chen is hoping to continue playing consistently and putting well as he enters the final round.

“I made a few twenty-foot putts today,” Chen said. “I am looking to stay consistent and play like I did today and maybe I will win the tournament.”

Hartman carded six birdies in the second round and says his ball striking and putting were the difference.

“I hit a lot of greens today and then made my putts instead of missing them like I did yesterday,” Hartman said. “The putts were closer than yesterday too because my ball striking was better.”

Shugo Imahira of Bradenton, Fla., stands alone in third at 3-under-par 141. Zach Botts of Jonesborough, Tenn., made a hole-in-one on the par-3 13th hole and is in fourth at 2-under par 142. First-round leaders Sepp Straka of Valdosta, Ga., and Chenxiao Duan of Bradenton, Fla, fell back into a tie for fifth with Robert De Biase of North Miami, Fla., at 1-under-par 143.

In the Girls Division, Luo of Lakewood Ranch, Fla., rebounded after bogeying the first three holes on her second nine to card a 2-over-par 74.

“The fourth hole was a turning point for me after bogeying three holes in a row,” Luo said. “I told myself to trust my swing and I made par and my game just came back after that. I went on to birdie three of my last four holes.”

Ashlan Ramsey of Bradenton, Fla., says that the key for her going into the final round is to stay focused on playing her own game.

“I need to play one shot at a time and not worry about my opponents,” Ramsey said. “I need to go out and play my own game like I have the first two rounds.”
