Stanford, CA. - Kristina Xu of Claremont, California, leads the Fortinet Girls Invitational at Stanford after round one with a score of 4-under-par 67.

The Fortinet Girls Invitational at Stanford marks the ninth AJGA event at Stanford Golf Course. In 2023, Golfweek rated Stanford Golf Course the No. 7 college course in the country. This week's event includes 54 juniors ranked inside the top-100 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings along with 58 past AJGA champions. There are 25 college commits in the 72-player field that represent 16 states and eight countries.

Xu came into the event at No. 75 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings. She started her round on the back nine with back-to-back pars on Nos. 10-11. She then carded her first birdie of the round on No.12 and went on to record two more birdies on No. 14 and 17 before making the turn. The California native kept the momentum going and knocked in two more birdies on No. 2 and 5 before making her first bogey of the day on No. 6. Xu finished her round with three consecutive pars to card a first-round, 4-under-par, 67.

"It was pretty tough conditions today. I took it one shot at a time, fairways and greens, then thought about the putts from there. I think my putting really clicked today and my pitches were on point."
