LEE TAKES A TWO-SHOT LEAD IN BOYS DIVISION AT SUNRIVER
Johns maintains three stroke lead among girls

SUNRIVER, Ore. - Lucas Lee of Torrance, Calif., followed his course record 65 with a 2-under-par 69 in the second round of the AJGA PING Junior at Sunriver Resort for a two-day total of 8-under-par 134. In the Girls Division, Stephanie Johns of Ashland, Ore., will take a three stroke lead into the final round after a 73 Thursday.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the PING Junior at Sunriver Resort features players from eight states, including 16 from the state of Oregon. The inaugural 54-hole tournament is being held on the par-71 layout of the Meadows Course at Sunriver Resort.

Lee carded six birdies en route to a round of 35-34-69, including a chip-in for birdie on No. 7. He also made a 10-foot birdie on No. 2.

"I had a tough round today," Lee, 16, said. "I did not get to the course early enough this morning to practice. I stroked the ball very well and I made a lot of putts for birdie.

"Today was windy compared to yesterday," he continued. "My goal for tomorrow is to win my first AJGA tournament."

Tying Lee's course record that he set Wednesday was Kevin Chappell of Fresno, Calif. He carded eight birdies, including six on the back nine, en route to a 35-30-65 and is tied for sixth place at even-par 142.

Two strokes off the pace at 6-under-par 136 with a second round of 69 is Nick Geyer of Agoura Hills, Calif. Alone in third place is Matt Marshall of Los Gatos, Calif., with consistent rounds of 69-69-138. Rounding out the top five in the Boys Division are Sasan Shahi of Laguna Niguel, Calif., and Craig Leslie of Spokane, Wash., at 1-under-par 141.

In the Girls Division, Johns, who is playing in her first national event, finished the day with two birdies on her way to a two-day total of even-par 142.

"It was a good round today," the 16-year-old said. "I just made a lot of pars. I was hitting greens and two-putting every hole. I felt confident all day and all aspects of my game were consistent. Tommorrow I plan to do the same thing and just stay in it."

Tied for second place at 145 are Jennifer Yoo of Cerritos, Calif., and Kim Shin of Shoreline, Wash. Allison Goodman sits in fourth place at 149 and rounding out the top five is Soo Cho of Glendale, Calif., at 150.

Final-round tee times will begin Friday at 7 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees on the Meadows Course of Sunriver Resort.
