Fayetteville, AR - Angela Zhang of Bellevue, Washington, leads the first round of the KPMG Stacy Lewis Junior All-Star Invitational at 3-under-par 69. The 2027 grad holds a three stroke lead in the Girl's Division.

The KPMG Stacy Lewis Junior All-Star Invitational begun on Monday, June 13, at Blessings Golf Club. The 56 player field features an even split between boys and girls. The unique stroke-play event features mixed pairings of boys and girls. The 12-15 year-olds competing include 33 past AJGA champions and 13 players ranked in the top-100 of the Rolex AJGA Rankings.

Zhang started the day off on the wrong foot with a bogey on No. 1 but had a quick recovery with a birdie on No. 2. With another bogey on No.5, Zhang fought hard to stay close with the girl leaders. The Washington native closed out the front nine with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 8 and 9. With five consecutive pars on the back nine, Zhang would go on to birdie Nos. 15 and 16, and close out the back with two more pars to finish 3-under-par 69.

The 13-year-old was named a 2021 Rolex Junior All-American and sits at No. 54 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings. With three finishes as runner-up in 2021, Zhang is seeking her first AJGA win this week.

It feels good, because it's obviously a very tough course and I played good today so it feels good.

I'm encouraged by the first round but there's a lot of golf left to play"
