Wang Leads Rolex Junior Championship After 36 Holes

The Country Club of Rochester is proving to be quite the foe at the Rolex Girls Junior Championship.

Elizabeth Wang was the only golfer in the 72-player field under par after the opening round. After 36 holes, Wang still leads, but is now over par like all of the rest. The 14-year old from San Marino, CA leads by three strokes at +1.

Christine Schmitt of Pittsford is the only local golfer in the field. The Mercy senior will be attending Georgetown University in the fall. She sits in a tie for 56th at +17.

The tournament will wrap up on Friday at CCR. Past winners of the Rolex Girls Junior Championship include In-Bee Park (2002), Paula Creamer (2003), and Morgan Pressel (2005).
