Lin and Kim Share Lead in Girls Division at AJGA Philadelphia Open Championship

Cox jumps ahead in Boys Division at Huntingdon Valley Country Club

HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. — Christine Lin of Austin, Texas and Anna Kim of Chandler, Ariz., are tied for the lead heading into the second round after finishing with a first-round score of 2-over-par 72. Cody Cox of Milford, Pa., leads the Boys Division after carding an even-par 70.

The AJGA Philadelphia Open Championship is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Huntingdon Valley Country Club—Toomey & Flynn Courses in Huntingdon Valley, Pa. The tournament field boasts 56 boys and 21 girls, ages 12-18, from 15 states, Dubai and Canada. The Boys Division is playing the par-70 course at 6,836 yards and the Girls Division is playing at 6,019 yards.

Lin attributed her consistent first round to her putting game, which lead her to card three birdies and 11 pars.

“I birdied on No. 12 and that really got my putting going,” Lin said. “I had more putts near the end and played a pretty solid back nine overall.”

Lin feels confident going into the second round despite the difficult fairways and greens at Huntingdon Valley Country Club.

“ I just told myself to hit the middle of the fairway, middle of the green and stay out of trouble,” Lin said. “This is my last tournament for the summer, so I hope to finish strong.”

Kim started off the first round strong with a birdie on No. 1.

“My first shot landed in the rough on the left side and I layed up just short of the green for my second,” Kim said. “I putted in for the birdie which kind of got my momentum started for the day.”

Rounding out the top three for the Girls Division was Jordan Lippetz of Bradenton, Fla., with a first-round score of 3-over-par 73.

Cox played a consistent first round at Huntingdon Valley Country Club, including back-to-back birdies on the front and back nine of the course.

“My favorite shot was on No. 13,” Cox said. “I hit a pretty poor tee shot and it almost went in the hazard, but my pitch shot came within inches of the hole; it was perfect.”

Matt Oshrine of Baltimore, Md., and Roshan Chekuri of Pleasanton, Calif., both carded a 1-over-par 71. Stephen Piela of Wallington, N.J., finished the first-round with a 2-over-par 72. Rounding out the top five were Austin Powell of Jupiter, Fla., and Theo Humphrey of Greenwich, Conn., who both shot a score of 3-over-par 73.
