Miller fires a 73 to lead the Girls Division

WINDSOR, Ontario - After shooting 4-under-par 67s, Brendan Gielow of Muskegon, Mich., Ryan Brehm of Mt. Pleasant, Mich., and Robbie Greenwell of Georgetown, Ontario, lead after the first round of the AJGA Toldo Group Eastern Canadian Junior. Katie Miller of Jeannette, Pa., shot a 1-over-par 73 to pull ahead in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Toldo Group Eastern Canadian Junior features 105 players with boys and girls, ages 13-18, representing 13 states and Canada, including 50 Ontario natives. The 54-hole event is being held at Roseland Golf and Curling Club.

In the Boys Division, Gielow eagled the par-4 No. 7 hole to secure his spot atop the scoreboard. Last year Gielow had to withdraw from his only AJGA event due to an injury. This will be his first full event.

"I want to play three good, solid rounds and see how I finish," the 15-year-old said. "I hope to stay consistent throughout the tournament."

Brehm, 17, turned it up a notch on the par-4 No. 17 after holing out from the fairway for an eagle.

"I scrambled well today," he said. "I got up-and-down when I needed to. My goal in this tournament was to putt better and I'm making it there."

Greenwell, 16, improved his short game for this tournament, but excelled in his long game as well.

"I had a few good shots on the par-5s," he said. "I also putted well - something I haven't been doing much of this year."

Michael Knight of Calgary, Alberta, and Andy Connell of Lima, Ohio, are tied for fourth after shooting 2-under-par 69s.

Knight, 17, changed the course of his round after sinking a 30-foot putt for birdie on the par-4 No. 5 hole.

"Everything went well today," he said. "I played a solid round of golf and treated it like any other day."

Connell, 17, headed to Windsor directly after playing in the Buick Junior Open presented by Golfweek. He credits his patience for his low score.

"I kept my cool when I had bad holes," he said. "I also putted well. The greens putt real nice, fast and true."

Miller leads the Girls Division with a 1-over-par 73. She said she didn't have high expectations coming into the Toldo Group Eastern Canadian Junior. The 18-year-old high school graduate aggravated an injury in her elbow a week ago.

"I swung smoothly so I wouldn't hurt myself," she said. "Everything was consistent. I didn't make any big mistakes."

Tied for second with 2-over-par 74s are Amber Prange of Noblesville, Ind., and defending champion Morgan Pressel of Boca Raton, Fla.

Prange and Pressel both had the same goal in mind coming into this tournament - to win.

"I can't put too much pressure on myself," Prange, 18, said. "I just have to take it one shot at a time. It's a walk in the park."

Pressel is hoping to win the Toldo Group Eastern Canadian Junior for the second year in a row. She is also coming straight off a win at the Buick Junior Open presented by Golfweek. Prange finished third at the same tournament.

Second-round tee times will begin Wednesday at 6:30 a.m. off the No. 1 tee at Roseland Golf and Curling Club.
