FAYETTEVILLE, AR - The KPMG Stacy Lewis Junior All-Star Invitational is the only AJGA stroke play event to feature mixed pairings with boys and girls playing together in each group. An equal number of boys and girls annually compete in this event with the pairings consisting of twosomes that have one girl and one boy. A boys versus girls team champion is crowned in addition to stroke play champions – the top four boys and four girls scores are combined to determine a Boys Division or Girls Division team victory each year. To date, the series is tied 3-3 and the Girls Division has captured the title three years in a row (2018, 2019, 2020).
Tip Price of Greenville, South Carolina, takes over the lead in the Boys Division at the KPMG Stacy Lewis Junior All-Star Invitational. The 2025 graduate had a 4-under-par 68 second round to push ahead by four strokes. He started the day T4 at 1-under-par 71.
Price had a clean front nine to begin his day which included three birdies and zero bogeys. Price ended with six birdies on the day to bring his overall tournament score to 5-under-par 139. The fourteen year-old who is looking for his first career AJGA victory would have the low round of the day.
Sihao Cong of Irvine, California, enters the top-5 at 1-under-par 143 giving him sole possession of second place.
