Three juniors share lead in Girls Division at eight-over-par

ASHLAND, Ky.-Cale Barr of Versailles, Ky., posted his second straight round of 2-under-par 68 Thursday to retain the Boys Division lead at the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational being held at Bellefonte Country Club. A trio of golfers share the lead in the Girls Division with two-round totals of 148. Brittany Adams of Huntington, W.Va., Marci Turner of Tompkinsville, Ky., and Amanda Blumenherst of Fort Wayne, Ind. are tied at eight-over-par.

The 54-hole tournament, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is celebrating its 20th year, making it one of the longest-running events on the AJGA circuit. This year's field features 120 juniors from 22 states and Canada, including 31 Kentucky natives.

"I just really tried to do the same thing as yesterday," Barr said about his pace-setting performance in the Boys Division. "I got off to a hot start with birdies on holes one and two."

The 16-year-old Barr, who will be a junior at Lexington Christian Academy in Kentucky in the fall, carded only one bogey Thursday. He credited his success Thursday to his conservative approach.

"I didn't hit my driver that much today," he said. "And as a result, I only missed one fairway. That was really the only time I got in any trouble. You can shoot under par on this course if you keep it straight."

After finishing second, third and fourth in AJGA events on multiple occasions, the 16-year-old Barr is still seeking his first-career AJGA victory.

"I'd like to win one in my home state," Barr said about playing in his native Kentucky. "If I were going to win one tournament, I'd want it to be this one. That would really be special because this is one of the events we look forward to each year."

Shawn Lafontaine (68-70--138) of Cobourg, Ontario, Jessie Mudd (69-69--138) of Louisville, Ky., Justin Fender (71-67--138) of New Richmond, Ohio, and Mark Blakefield (73-65--138) of Maysville, Ky., wrapped up second-round action tied for second at 2-under-par 138.

"This is a golf course where you can make a lot of birdies," Blakefield said about Bellefonte. "Although, if you try to attack it, it can jump out and get you."
Chris Halkowitz of Johnson City, Tenn., posted a bogey-free round of 4-under-par 66 to jump 23 spots to fifth place after his opening round of 73 Wednesday left him in a tie for 28th.

The 17-year-old Halkowitz narrowly missed an eagle on the 291-yard par-4 11th hole, after leaving his second shot less than an inch from the hole.

Marci Turner, whose career-best finish is fifth at the AJGA TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Chateau Elan in April, posted the low round of the day in the Girls Division with a 2-over-par 72. She joins Brittany Adams (72-76--148) and Amanda Blumenherst (73-75--148), who stood in first and second after the opening round, in a tie for the lead heading into Friday's action.

"It was fun out there today," the 15-year-old Turner said. "After the first hole, I got loose. Making some pars and birdies really got my round going."

Adams admitted she was not on top of her game, but was optimistic heading into Friday's final round.

"I'm glad I didn't shoot myself out of it," she said. "But I set myself up for tomorrow. Hopefully, I can play like I did the first day."

Blumenherst, 14, expressed similar sentiments as Adams.

"I didn't play as well as I would have liked," Blumenherst said. "But I kept a good head on my shoulders. All I want to do tomorrow is play my best. I'm not going to worry about what the other girls do."

Tournament action concludes Friday with tee-times beginning at 7 a.m. For more information on the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational, contact tournament headquarters at (606) 326-0341.
