Cannon blasts past field at AJGA Junior at Oxmoor Valley presented by Nelson Brothers
Salazar tops the Girls Division at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Oxmoor Valley

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Will Cannon of Hoover, Ala., leads the AJGA Junior at Oxmoor Valley presented by Nelson Brothers after the first round, firing a 4-under-par 68. Lauren Salazar of Santa Clara, Calif., leads the Girls Division with a 2-over-par 74.

The AJGA Junior at Oxmoor Valley presented by Nelson Brothers is a 54-hole stroke play tournament conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the Valley Course of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Oxmoor Valley in Birmingham, Ala. The event features 51 boys and 20 girls, ages 12-18, from 13 states and South Korea. The Boys Division is playing the par-72 course at 6,922 yards while the Girls Division is playing the course at 5,982 yards.

Cannon was able to birdie three of his last five holes, including back-to-back birdies on Nos. 9 and 10. His tee shot on No. 10 was left of the fairway, but then he stuck it to 20 feet with his 8-iron to set up a birdie putt.

“I was just making everything,” Cannon said. “If I missed the green, then I got up-and-down. When I hit greens, it was easy to make the putt. But the tournament is not won after the first day. I have to go out and play two more rounds.”

Rylee Reinertson of Gibbon, Neb., is in second place with 1-under-par 71, and in a three-way tie for third are Michael Peter of Florence, Ala., Juan Gonzalez III of McAllen, Texas, and Hunter Arnold of Lenoir City, Tenn., who each shot an even-par 72.

Salazar played consistently, which she attributed to her strong putting. She said that she was able to make any birdie putt that was within 10 feet.

“I didn't make any big mistakes,” Salazar said. “If I made a bogey, then I made a birdie to make up for it. It was really steady play.”

In second place is Rinko Mitsunaga of Roswell, Ga., who is one stroke behind with a 3-over-par 75. In a four-way tie for third at 4-over-par 76 are Janie Jackson of Huntsville, Ala., Alexandra Farnsworth of Nashville, Tenn., Lakareber Abe of Angleton, Texas, and Paula Hong of Duluth, Ga.
