Round One At Kearney Hill All About The Favorites

Lexington, Ky. – There were pristine scoring conditions today in round one of the 2010 PGA Junior Series event at Kearney Hill Golf Links in Lexington, Ky. The three day tournament features over 160 juniors from 14 different states. After finishing round one, 3-under-par 69 seemed to be the number of the day.

Justin Thomas of Goshen, Ky., shot a 3-under-par 69 to be leading in the Boys’ 16-18 Division. At the beginning of his round it looked to be a special day for Thomas with birdies on 4 of the first 5 holes. However, Thomas cooled off after that with one bogey after that on his first nine and played even on his second nine.

“I want to have a chance to win on the last couple of holes,” said Thomas who is currently ranked in the top-20 in Junior Golf according to Golfweek. “The course is in great shape and if you are on the correct side of the hole you can go really low.”

Last year’s Girls’16-18 winner Kendall Martindale is leading her division after posting a 3-under-par 69. Martindale of Jefferson City, Tenn., had a bogey free back nine with two birdies. She made a solid birdie putt on the par-3 No. 12 and also made birdie on the difficult par-4 No. 17.

“My goal for the week is to finish under-par,” said Martindale who is focused on solid golf for the week instead of just winning.

Martindale has great composure out on the golf course and always remains very focused on playing her game and not worrying about the competition.

In the Boys’ 13-15 Division, newcomer to the PGA Junior Series Jake McBride, found himself atop the leaderboard with an impressive 3-under-par 69. The Ohio native shot a 33 on his back nine with three birdies.

“Hole locations are a big factors out here,” commented McBride. “There can be some really hard locations. However, if they are in easy spots, I always look to take advantage of them.”

McBride’s solid play has put him in the lead by three strokes over Christian Seaton of Mt. Carmel, Ill., and Rhyne Jones of Blowing Rock, N.C. They both shot an even-par 72. Seaton, who won the PGA Junior Series event at Stone Creek Golf Club last year, hopes for another win on the Series here in Lexington.

Another rookie out on the PGA Junior Series found herself atop the Girls’ 13-15 Division. Sarah Kolodzik of Bellbrook, Ohio shot a 3-under-par 69 to be leading by 5 strokes. She birdied holes one, two, and three to reach the 3-under-par mark that she was able to maintain for the rest of her round.

Kolodzik has a five stroke lead over Sophia Schubert of Oak Ridge, Tenn.

Round two commences tomorrow with the Boys’ 16-18 Division in the morning wave and the other three divisions in the afternoon wave. Tomorrow is moving day at Kearney Hill Golf Links and it will be interesting to see who can step up and challenge the leaders in each of the four divisions.
