Nakagawa maintains lead in Girls Division at AJGA Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series Championship

AURORA, Ore. — Mu Hu of Bradenton, Fla., and Alex Resurreccion of Long Beach, Calif., are tied for the lead at 1-under-par 141 after two rounds of the AJGA Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series Championship. In the Girls Division, Ami Nakagawa of Osaka, Japan, carries a four-stroke lead heading into Monday’s final round.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 54-hole national golf tournament features 77 boys and girls (13-15 year olds) representing 26 states, Canada and Japan. The event is being held at the par-71 layout of Langdon Farms Golf Club. To qualify for this season-ending championship, the participants needed to garner top finishes in 2003 Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series events.

Hu, a 2007 high school graduate, carded seven birdies en route to 4-under-par 67 and two-day total of 1-under-par 141.

“I made a lot of birdies today,” the 13-year-old said. “I did not hit the ball well at all, but it was better than yesterday. I hit eight fairways today and only three yesterday. The key to my round today was my putter.”

After making four birdies in-a-row on Nos. 1-4 to start his back nine, Hu was feeling confident and knew he could shoot 6-under.

“I could not believe myself after those birdies,” Hu continued. “Those are not easy holes to make birdie, especially the par-3 No. 3. Tomorrow my goal is to shoot in the 60s and win.”

Resurreccion, who was a first-round co-leader, followed his first round 2-under-par 69 with a 72, which included birdies on Nos. 6 and 7.

“I started off slow,” Resurreccion, 14, said. “I was 3-over after 14 holes but then I made two birdies in-a-row. I was kind of scrambling all day but at the end I was getting better. My driver was the only thing that was working well today. I need to work on my putting for tomorrow and my goal is to finish under-par for the three days.”

One-stroke off the pace at even-par 142 is Daniel Miller of Santa Maria, Calif. Tied for fourth with two-round totals of 144 are Craig Cerbins of Portage, Wis., Sihwan Kim of La Mirada, Calif., and Jonathan Khan of Tucson, Ariz.

In the Girls Division, Nakagawa shot 4-over-par 75.

“I am very happy with my round today,” Nakagawa said. “My putter was the key to my round and I need to work on my driver for tomorrow.”

Four strokes back is Yuki Sakurai of Kyoto, Japan, at 153. In third with a two-day total of 158 is Alina Lee of Bradenton, Fla., and Melissa Mabanta of Phoenix is in fourth at 159. Rounding out the top five are So-Hyun Park of Bradenton, Fla., and Brittany Nelson of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., at 160.

The tournament concludes Monday with final-round tee times beginning at 7:30 a.m. off the first and 10th tees.
