Kurokawa stays in control in the Girls Division

LONG GROVE, Iowa-Darren Lundgren of Ballwin, Mo., battled through windy conditions to card a 1-under-par 71 to remain atop the leaderboard after the second round of the AJGA John Deere Classic Junior Championship. Elena Kurokawa of Redondo Beach, Calif., shot a 1-over-par 73 to remain in the lead in the Girls Division.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being held at the par-72 Glynn's Creek Golf Course. The field features 99 of the top junior golfers in the nation, representing 18 states.

Lundgren steadily made par until he two-putted for birdie on the 499-yard, par-5 ninth hole. The 18-year-old used a 9-iron downwind from 160 yards away in the left rough to reach the green in two. Lundgren used a lob wedge to land within two feet of the flagstick on the 17th hole to secure his other birdie on the day.

"The wind was tough today, especially on the front nine because of the crosswinds," Lundgren said. "I'm happy with my round because the conditions required us to try to make par. Hopefully I'll play more of the same tomorrow and maybe a couple more putts will fall."

The Ohio State signee holds a one-stroke lead over Trent Leon of Dallas, Texas, who fired the low round of the day with a 3-under-par 69, and Mike Calkin of St. Charles, Ill., at 140. Leon followed a birdie on No. 12 with two more birdies on Nos. 15 and 17 for a backside 34.

"I'm used to these conditions in Texas," said Leon, who finished sixth earlier this year at the Justin Leonard/Deloitte & Touche Junior Team Championship with teammate Drew Pigg of Plano, Texas. "I need to practice my lag putts and keep it in the fairway to do well tomorrow."

Calkin equaled his first-round total with another 2-under-par 70. After sinking a 30-foot birdie putt on the 12th hole, Calkin made back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15 to break par for his round.

"I'm going to play aggressively tomorrow and try to win," said Calkin.

Brandon Boomsma of Munster, Ind., is in fourth place at 72-69--141. Josh Esler of Wauconda, Ill., and Scott Seibert of Chesterfield, Mo., are four strokes back at 143.

In the Girls Division, Elena Kurokawa maintained her lead after posting a 1-over-par 73 for a 142 two-day total. After a bogey on the first hole, the 17-year-old recovered nicely with a par on No. 2 and a birdie on No. 3. Kurokawa added another birdie on the 348-yard, par-4 14th hole with a chip-in from 20-feet.

"I made some key putts today and my driver was working well," said Kurokawa, who missed one fairway. "I'm just going to try to stay consistent and hit more greens for the final round."

Alice Kim of Los Angeles, Calif., is four strokes back at 70-76--146. Jessica Castle of Plantation, Fla., is in third place at 150.

Final-round action begins Friday morning at 7:00 a.m. For more information regarding the AJGA John Deere Classic Junior Championship, please contact tournament headquarters at (319) 285-6635.
