SCHULTZ GRABS TWO-SHOT LEAD AT OAKRIDGE
Kuhn controls Girls Division leaderboard after one round

GARLAND, Texas - Kevin Schultz of Richardson, Texas, blazed Oakridge Country Club to the tune of 3-under-par 68 and holds a two-shot lead after the first round of the AJGA I.R.I. Golf Group Oakridge Junior on Tuesday.

Rebecca Kuhn of Miami overcame a rough patch of holes on the back nine to score a Girls Division best of 2-over-par 73.

The I.R.I Golf Group Oakridge Junior, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being contested at Oakridge Country Club in Garland, Texas. The field consists of 99 juniors from eight states, including 78 from the state of Texas. The Boys Division measures out at 6,542 yards, and the Girls Division plays to 6,038 yards.

Schultz raced to the top of a tight leaderboard with birdies on Nos. 3, 6 and 9. Schultz, though, was not content with his 3-under-par 33 on the front nine. He recorded his fourth birdie of the day on the 12th hole and ended with an even-par 35 on the back.

"It wasn't very stressful (Tuesday)," Schultz said of his round. "It wasn't like I was scrambling around for pars most of the day. I just hit it 15 feet, 10 feet, make a couple (putts) here and there. It wasn't anything spectacular."

Schultz's only bogey on the day came on the difficult par-3 17th, which played as the second hardest hole on the course. He played the front nine without a bogey.

On the strength of good iron play, Richard Rogalewski of Austin, Texas, shot a 1-under-par 70 and is in second place. Although Rogalewski recorded six birdies, he also tarnished his card with a double bogey and three bogeys. Nick Olivarri of San Antonio, Texas, joins Rogalewski in second place. Olivarri had four birdies on the back nine en route to his 1-under-par 70.

A cluster of players follow closely behind the leaders. Marshall Meyer of Dallas, Clarke Kincaid of Trophy Club, Texas, Kyle Redman of Southlake, Texas, and Austin Bowman of Pryor, Okla., finished with rounds of 1-over-par 72. That group sits together in fourth, four shots back of Schultz. In addition, 12 more players are at 3-over-par 74 or better and within six shots of the lead.

In the Girls Division, Kuhn scored an even-par 36 on the front nine, including a birdie at the 442-yard third. However, Kuhn started the back nine slowly, bogeying Nos. 10 through 12. She righted the ship quickly with a par on the 13th and a subsequent birdie on the 14th.

"I played pretty well," Kuhn said. "I birdied No. 14, got it back and parred in. I was really happy that I parred in."

Taylor Leon of Dallas sits two shots back of Kuhn after shooting a 4-over-par 75. Amanda Martinez of San Antonio, Texas, and Lacey Jones of Idabel, Okla., also remain in the thick of things in third after first round score of 5-over-par 76.

The second round of the AJGA I.R.I. Golf Group Oakridge Junior will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Tee times will continue until 12:18 p.m. For more information on the tournament, please call tournament headquarters at (972) 530-8008.
