WALLACE TAMES TOTTERIDGE TO CAPTURE THREE-SHOT LEAD

Local native Trachok takes lead in Girls Division

 

GREENSBURG, Pa.   Mother Nature took center stage during the second round of the Solutions Consulting Junior Classic as gusty winds and a 31-minute rain delay contributed to rising scores throughout the round. However, Jamie Wallace of Moorestown, N.J., battled the elements and took control of the Boys Division by three shots after firing a second consecutive even-par 72.

 

In the Girls Division, Katie Trachok of Pittsburgh, Pa., came from four shots behind to claim a two-shot lead after carding a 6-over-par 78.

 

The Solutions Consulting Junior Classic is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Totterridge Golf Club. The tournament features 99 players, ages 12-18, from 16 states and Canada, including 41 players from Pennsylvania.

 

Wallace was able to complete the entirety of his round before heavy rains forced the suspension of play. He credited his consistency, as well as being able to keep the ball in the fairway, as the reasons why he is at the top of the leaderboard.           

 

“I hit the ball really well the last two days,” Wallace said. “I’ve made a lot of pars and I’m just staying out of trouble.”

 

Wallace made two birdies on both the front and back nine en-route to firing matching even-par 36s. After finishing in a tie for seventh in the 2003 Solutions Consulting Junior Classic, Wallace feels that he doesn’t need to make any changes in preparation for the final round, a round in which he will attempt to win his first AJGA tournament.           

 

“I just need to keep playing the way I’m playing,” he said. “I just have to keep it around even-par.”

 

Clayton Rotz of Chambersburg, Pa., trails Wallace by three shots after completing the second round at 3-over-par 147. Christopher Gold of Haddonfield, N.J., is alone in third place, five shots behind Wallace at 149. Mike VanSickle of Wexford, Pa., trails by six shots with a two-day total of 150. William Miller of McMurray, Pa., Christopher Barach of Niskayuna, N.Y., and Donald Thomas of Murrysville, Pa., round out the Boys Division top five, locked in a three-way tie at 151.

 

In the Girls Division, Trachok was standing on the 11th tee when play was suspended due to heavy rain and wind. When play resumed, Trachok caught fire, recording three birdies on the back nine and carding a 1-under-par 35, putting her at 78 for the day.

           

“I had some bad holes on the front, but I started playing well on the back and made a lot more putts,” Trachok said. “Until the back nine, I didn’t feel like I played my best.”

           

Seung-Hyun Lee of Kennett Square, Pa., and Brittany Stillwagon of Bloomingdale, Ohio, trail Trachok by two shots heading into the final round with matching tournament totals of 163.
