Multiple girls and boys at the 2020 KPMG Stacy Lewis Junior All-Star Invitational are in contention for an individual title.
Reigning champion Leigh Chien of Irvine, California is six strokes ahead in the Girls Division while Mara Janess of Barrington, Illinois has remained in the top-three girls since the first round. After the second round she was in solo-second at even-par.
Just behind Janess are Caiyi (Flora) Zhang of (South Korea) Bradenton, Florida, and Kiara Romero of San Jose, California, at 2-over-par for their 36-hole total. All three girls have opportunities to separate themselves and move up on the leaderboard in the final round.
The Boys Division has remained a tight race since the first 18 holes. As he enters Thursday's final round, Kush Arora has a two-stroke lead after a second-round push up the leaderboard. Byungho Lee of (South Korea) Houston, and Nathan Wang of Fremont, California, are just behind at even-par 144 over the two days.
With a four-way tie for third, there are six boys at the top of the leaderboard all within three shots of one another. Anawin Pikulthong of Gilbert, Arizona, Allan Kournikova of Palm Beach, Florida, Jack Usner of The Woodlands, Texas, and Sihao Cong of Irvine, California, are all in the hunt.
The girls have a one stroke lead in the team competition heading into the final round, but with the boys progressively shooting lower scores each day, the challenge will certainly be decided in the final holes on Thursday.
