Crouch, Wood take Polo Golf Junior Classic first-round lead at 5-under-par 67
Three-way tie among girls includes M. Jutanugarn, Boutier, Morales

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — A.J. Crouch of Jacksonville, Fla., and Adam Wood of Zionsville, Ind., share the Polo Golf Junior Classic lead at 5-under-par 67 after Monday's first round of stroke play at the Polo Golf Junior Classic. In the Girls Division, Moriya Jutanugarn of Bangkok, Thailand, Celine Boutier of Montrouge, France, and Nicole Morales of South Salem, N.Y., are tied for the lead at 2-under-par 70 at PGA National Resort & Spa.

The Polo Golf Junior Classic, which has been conducted annually since 1978, marks the first tournament of the American Junior Golf Association's 2012 season. The 156-player invitation-only field is made up of 78 boys and 78 girls, ages 12-18, from 24 states, Puerto Rico and 14 foreign countries. Former champions include Stewart Cink (1989), Trevor Immelman (1995), Tiger Woods (1991), Paula Creamer (2002), Grace Park (1994, 1996) and Morgan Pressel (2004).

During Monday's first round, the Boys Division played the Haig Course (6,776 yards, par 72), while the Girls Division played the Champion Course (6,398 yards, par 72). The tournament fields will be cut to the low 32 players and ties following the second round.

One day after being honored as Rolex Junior All-America honorable mentions, Crouch and Wood led the way in the Boys Division. Crouch birdied the first three holes of the day and turned at 3-under-par before reeling off another three consecutive birdies immediately after making the turn.

“I birdied the first three holes on each nine, so that got me off to a hot start,” Crouch said. “I wasn't putting any pressure on myself and I think that's what enabled me to play pretty well today.”

Wood scattered six birdies against a single bogey to match Crouch's score.

“At the beginning of this year I wasn't even sure if I would be at a tournament like this,” Wood said. “It's a lot of fun and I love the competition. Being able to shoot the low score felt really good.”

In the Girls Division, a pair of first-team Rolex Junior All-Americans, Moriya Jutanugarn and Boutier, share the lead with Morales. Jutanugarn is in a familiar position at the Polo Golf Junior Classic, claiming the first-round stroke play lead for the second straight year. In 2010, Jutanugarn earned stroke play medalist honors after rounds of 72-69. With a pair of birdies and no bogeys in the opening round, she joined the three-way tie at 2-under-par 70.

Boutier, a quarterfinalist at last year's Polo Golf Junior Classic, is well-positioned to return to match play after making three birdies, including a 60-footer at the 169-yard, par-3 seventh hole.

“All my drives were in the fairway,” Boutier said. “And my irons were good; I hit 15 greens.”

Morales carded four birdies against two bogeys to join the three-way tie atop the Girls Division. After beginning the day on the 10th tee, Morales closed out strong with birdies on her final two holes.
