Three tied at 68 for second in Boys Division

FIRESTONE, Colo. - Jordan Nasser of Anaheim Hills, Calif., and Kristen Svicarovich of Hillsboro, Ore., broke the course tournament competition record at the Saddleback Golf Course during the opening round of the AJGA Marsico Funds Colorado Junior Roundup. Nasser, 18, and Svicarovich, 17, shot 5-under-par 67 to lead their divisions.

The 54-hole championship is conducted by the American Junior Golf Association and features 84 players from 18 states, with 37 players hailing from Colorado.

Nasser said the work he has been doing on his consistency and course management really was evident today.

"I hardly missed any fairways and that enabled me to hit greens and score low," Nasser said.
Nasser carded one eagle, three birdies and no bogeys to help break the record.

Tomorrow, Nasser plans to keep playing the same style of game he played today.

"I need to stick to my strategy and play consistent," Nasser said. "I need to stay calm and whatever happens will happen."

Nasser has signed to play golf at the University of California-San Diego. His best AJGA finish was at the Morgan Run Junior earlier this year where he tied for tenth.

Close on Nasser's heels at 4-under-par 68 are Derek Tolan of Highlands Ranch, Colo., who qualified and competed in the US Open at Bethpage Black, Chase Watkins of Fort Collins, Colo., and Michael Baird of Castle Rock, Colo.

Svicarovich thought she played a strong round today. She added that her practice on her wedges finally paid off today as she took advantage of short shots on the par-5s and short par-4s.

"I played my wedges really well today," Svicarovich said. "I've been working on them a lot because that's my weakness."

Svicarovich started off her round with a birdie on No. 2 and continued her pace with five more birdies.

"The birdie on No. 2 got me off to a good start and I knew I was rolling my putts well," Svicarovich said.

At four shots behind the leader are hometown favorite, Kelly Jacques of Longmont, Colo., and Jennifer Hong, of Windemere, Fla.

"I plan to just forget about the round today and go at it hole-by-hole just like I did today," Jacques, 16, said.
