Lundgren, Pigg and Mudd open tournament with 4-under-par 67s

DALLAS-Three players carded opening-round 67s Tuesday to share the first-round lead at the 15th annual AJGA Lucent Technologies Boys Junior Championship. Darren Lundgren of Ballwin, Mo., Drew Pigg of Plano, Texas, and Jessie Mudd of Louisville, Ky., are atop the leaderboard following 4-under-par rounds. Thirty-four players are at par or better and five of the top 15 are Texans.

Darren Lundgren

The 72-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, is being held at the par-71 Lakewood Country Club. The field features 132 players representing 28 states, Canada, Germany and Japan. Past champions include Tiger Woods, David Duval, Jim Furyk and Ty Tryon.

Playing in the first group of day, Lundgren tallied six birdies and missed only two fairways in the first round.

"We were going at a good pace which helped because I don't like playing slow," said Lundgren, whose group finished the first round in under four hours.

Lundgren, a Ohio State University signee, took advantage of the par-3s, making birdies on Nos. 7, 12 and 14. Lundgren's hot putting contributed to a 3-under-par 32 on the back nine.

Jesse Mudd

"I felt like I could hit every putt on every green I hit," said Lundgren, who earned honorable mention Polo Golf Junior All-America honors last year. "The putts I was leaving on the edges on the front were falling on the back nine."

Starting off the No. 10 tee, Pigg found his putting stroke on the 191-yard, par-3 14th hole. His six-foot birdie started a string of three straight birdies. The 18-year-old rolled in three more birdies on the front nine en route to a 34-33--67.

"I hit the ball well today, but my putting was especially good," Pigg said. "I plan on attacking the flags all week, and we'll see what happens if I keep playing this well."

Mudd, who finished third at the AJGA Henry Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational last month, sank seven birdies, including four on the back nine.

Drew Pigg

"I tried not to hit my putts too fast on these greens," said the 16-year-old. "It's nice to have some momentum going into the rest of the week."

Tyler Kief of Kingwood, Texas, Derek Abel of Plano, Texas, and Neno Boonyaplanun of Irvine, Calif., round out the top five at 3-under-par 68.

Kief, who qualified for this event via the Pepsi Qualifier Series presented by ClubCorp, had a 30 on the back nine, which included five birdies. Boonyaplanun, who was 4-under during a three-hole stretch on the back, holed a pitching wedge from 120 yards away for an eagle at the 427-yard, par-4 15th hole.

Second-round action begins Wednesday morning at 7:30 a.m. For more information regarding the AJGA Lucent Technologies Boys Junior Championship, please contact tournament headquarters at (214) 821-1491.
