Weather Halts First Round of 90th Texas State Junior Championship
The Woodlands—The opening round of the 90th Texas State Junior Championship presented by Merrill Lynch saw two separate rain delays, but Richmond’s Logan Pate and Houston’s William Moll finished at 4-under 68. The first round was suspended at 8:20 PM due to darkness and will continue Thursday at 8:00 AM.
The 120-player field was split into two waves of 60 players. The morning wave teed off at 7:30 AM before rain hit. Play was suspended at 9:30 AM due to heavy rain and lightning in the area. Play resumed back at 12:20 PM and players were able to get in almost of hour of play before the horns were blown at 1:30 PM again. The lightning let up at 2:40 PM and
players were let back out on the course for the remainder of the day.
Moll, who teed off at 8:00 AM, started his day with five birdies in his first 16 holes before making bogey on the par-3 eighth hole. Pate, whose original tee time was 12:30 PM, made six birdies on Wednesday, including three of his last four holes. He shot 32 on the back side at The Woodlands Country Club’s Tournament Course. He tee off at 4:00 and was the last group to finish, nearly four hours and 30 minutes later.
Parker Coody currently sits at 4-under, but the Plano native is only through 16 holes in his opening round. Coody was the runner-up in the Byron Nelson Junior Championship last month. Shuai Ming Wong, who finished behind Coody in the Byron Nelson, is tied with the leaders through 16 holes also.
Zachery Cole of Fort Worth finished his first round 2-under, 70, while Jake Stevenson of Boerne, Jake Kuwitzky of McKinney and Michael Anthony Rome of Austin finished at 1-under 71.
Play will resume at 8:00 AM for those players that did not finish their first round. Tee times for the second round will be delayed one hour and 30 minutes and will start at 9:00 AM off the No. 1 and No. 10 tees.
The Woodlands Country Club is hosting the Texas State Junior Championship after the tournament spent six years at Horseshoe Bay Resort and Country Club. The Tournament Course is host to numerous tournaments throughout the year, including the Insperity Invitational on the Champions Tour.
