Hall sprints to three-shot lead at The Junior PLAYERS Championship presented by TaylorMade-adidas Golf
Hall's second-round 64 included nine birdies on Dye's Valley Course

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Gavin Hall of Pittsford, N.Y., celebrated his 17th birthday Saturday by firing a 6-under-par 64 on Dye's Valley Course during the second round of The Junior PLAYERS Championship presented by TaylorMade-adidas Golf. His 6-under-par total is three shots better than first-round co-leader Jim Liu of Smithtown, N.Y., while three players are even-par and will begin Sunday's final round tied for third.

In cooperation with the PGA TOUR, the American Junior Golf Association has brought 78 players, ages 12-18, from 21 states and 15 foreign countries to TPC Sawgrass for a special junior golf experience. For the second straight year the 2011 champion will be given a sponsor's exemption to the Nationwide Tour's Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open Presented by Planters, which will be played Oct. 17-23. Saturday's second round was played on Dye's Valley Course, and the 6,864-yard, par-70 layout matched the set-up used for the Nationwide Tour event.

Hall re-injured his surgically-repaired wrist in June and is playing in his first AJGA event since the Thunderbird International Junior in May. He has returned with a vengeance, as his round of 64 is the best in his four-year AJGA career.

“It means a lot. It was a tough summer to find things to do, but I've worked really hard since I was cleared to come back,” said Hall, who returned to competition last month at the Junior PGA Championship. “I don't take it for granted anymore and I come out here more hungry and motivated to play.”

During the 2010 Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open Presented by Planters, only three players matched or bettered Hall's score on Dye's Valley Course. Though a Nationwide Tour exemption is on the line, Hall said that's not his primary focus.

“That'd be a great opportunity for me, but at the same time I have one more day left and I want to look ahead to the Stadium Course and what I need to do there before I start thinking about the Nationwide Tour,” said Hall, who competed in the PGA TOUR's 2010 Turning Stone Resort Championship.

For Liu, four front-nine birdies were offset by four back-nine bogeys, which resulted in an even-par 70. Liu and Hall have met once before in the junior golf spotlight, as Liu prevailed in a quarterfinal matchup during his championship run at the 2010 U.S. Junior Amateur.

“On the Stadium Course, three shots is almost nothing. If you don't stick to it, it could go really quickly, either way,” Liu said. “I had it at 7-under at one point so I know I can do it, but Gavin played great today and 6-under is an incredible round on the Valley Course.”

Lorens Chan of Honolulu, Jacob Fair of Monett, Mo., and Nicolas Echavarria of Medellin, Colombia, are tied for third at even-par, while Ireland's Gavin Moynihan is sixth at 1-over-par.

Final-round tee times will run from 8 — 10 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees of THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. For more information, please contact Tournament Headquarters at (770) 601-8922.

About TPC Sawgrass

TPC Sawgrass opened in 1980 as the first Tournament Players Club, conceived by then-PGA TOUR Commissioner Deane Beman to provide a TOUR-owned, world-class tournament facility that would offer fans the ultimate viewing experience, as well as give golfers an opportunity to play where the pros play. It became the permanent home of THE PLAYERS Championship in 1982, and today is recognized as one of the great venues in championship golf. THE PLAYERS Stadium Course, designed by Pete Dye, annually is ranked among the world's top golf courses. Dye's Valley, designed by Dye in collaboration with Jerry Pate and Bobby Weed, opened in 1987.

TPC Sawgrass underwent a major year-long renovation that was completed in November 2006. In addition to the installation of a state-of-the-art drainage and irrigation system on THE PLAYERS Stadium Course, an elegant 77,000 square-foot Mediterranean Revival-style clubhouse was built to accommodate the growing needs and stature of THE PLAYERS, as well as those of a world-class resort. TPC Sawgrass also features the state-of-the-art TOUR Academy teaching facility, which opened in 2007. For more information, please visit www.tpc.com/sawgrass.
