Hines leads by five out of the gate

BOERNE, TEXAS - On the strength of a 4-under-par 67, Zach Fullerton of Albuquerque, N.M., captured a one-shot lead over Carter Lawnin of Kingwood, Texas, after Wednesday's round one of the Randall Parker
San Antonio Shootout presented by Parker's Express.

In the Girls Division, Caney Hines of San Antonio, Texas, built a five-shot lead after finishing with a 3-under-par 69.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Randall Parker San Antonio Shootout presented by Parker's Express consists of 120 players from 10 states, including 103 from Texas. The tournament is being contested at the Lakes and Valley courses at Tapatio Springs Golf Resort. The course plays to a par-71 for the boys and par-72 for the girls. A past winner of the event is Tiger Woods, who won in 1992.

After struggling in Tuesday's practice round, Fullerton was consistent throughout day one, carding five birdies including a 20-foot putt on the par-4 12th. He recorded just one bogey in the first round.

"(My first round) was definitely the exact opposite from yesterday," Fullerton said. "You have bad rounds from time to time. Thank God it was a practice round."

A host of players, however, are poised to make a run at Fullerton going into the second day, including Lawnin. Also a model of consistency in the first round, Lawnin recorded four birdies and a single bogey. His 3-under-par 68 was enough to vault him into second place.

"I only missed about one or two fairways, hit 14 greens and just got a few putts to fall," Lawnin said. "I'm just here to have fun and I'm trying to play well."

Dos Goldsmith of McAllen, Texas, and Chad Follet of El Paso, Texas, fired matching rounds of 2-under-par 69 and lurk just two shots behind the leader. Four more players trail Fullerton by three shots going into the second round. There were only 11 rounds under par in the boys field of 96.

In the Girls Division, Hines, who finished second in last year's San Antonio event, proved that she is ready to take the next step. Hines' 69 included five birdies and catapulted her to a five-shot lead over Lauren Espinosa of Irving, Texas.

"I just wanted to come out here and play the best that I could and put up some good numbers," Hines said after the round. "If that happened, then I would be happy."

Hines recorded the only under-par round in the Girls Division on Wednesday.

Espinosa carded rounds of 37 on both nines en route to her 2-over-par 74. Jaclyn Stelzer of Allen, Texas, is six back after a 3-over-par 75.

Tee times will begin at 7 a.m. on Thursday and conclude at 12:51 p.m. For more information on the Randall Parker San Antonio Shootout Presented by Parker's Express, contact tournament headquarters at 1-800-999-3299, ext. 181.
