Biediger and Mierl lead Collegiate Preview
Briefly: Sophie Biediger leads the Girls Division of the Collegiate Preview after shooting 2-under across 36 holes on Monday. Trenton Mierl leads the Boys Division, but still has two holes to play in his second round at Lantana Golf Club.
Tournament Update: The Collegiate Preview faced a two hour and 10 minute weather delay during the second round, which was suspended due to darkness at 8:42 pm. The second round will be completed at 7:30 am on Tuesday and players will then proceed into their third round.
Leaders: Dallas’ Sophie Biediger leads the Girls Division after rounds of 74-68 on Monday. Her 4-under in the second round consisted of four birdies and no bogeys and she leads by three strokes heading into the Final Round. Austin’s Mierl tallied 10 birdies across 34 holes on Monday and leads by one over Connor Adams, while is the clubhouse leader at 7-under.
In Contention: In the Boys Division, Connor Adams holds the clubhouse lead after posting rounds of 65-71. The 7-under 65 was the lowest score on Monday and featured seven birdies with no bogeys. Garlands’ Sam Jenkins is in third at 6-under with two holes left to play in the second round, while Tyler Blackwell is in third and three players are tied for fifth. Defending champion Sam Dossey is tied for eighth with three other players at 3-under. In the Girls Division, Mallorie Luitwieler of Katy trails the leader at 1-over-par overall. Grace Frei of The Colony is tied for third along with Aubrey Tucker of Rockwall and Landry Saylor of Dallas. Mason Lewis sits in sixth place, followed by Kodi Nolen in seventh and three players tied for eighth.
Golf Course: Lantana Golf Club was founded in 2002 and the course was designed by Jay and Carter Morrish. The par-72 layout is playing to almost 6,800 yards in the Boys Division and 5,800 yards in the Girls Division. Inspired by the beauty of Texas Hill Country, the course maximizes the wooded terrain and natural beaty of the land. The signature hole on the course is the par-3 15th
Weather: Temperatures ranged in the mid to high 80s throughout the morning, but the sun was out for players during the first round. Rain and lightning swept into the area around 3:00 pm and caused a two hour and 10 minute delay during the second round.
Tournament Format: The Collegiate Preview is a 54-hole stroke-play event for players ages 14-19 that have an active membership with the Texas Junior Golf Alliance. The event is divided into two divisions: Boys and Girls.
Texas Junior Golf Alliance: The Alliance is a joint venture between the Texas Golf Association, Northern and Southern Texas PGA and Houston Golf Association. The goal of the Alliance was to allow junior golfers a clear path to the best tournaments in Texas. Each of the three tier-two organizations (STPGA, NTPGA, HGA) conduct events that serve as qualifiers into the statewide tier-one events run by the Legends Junior Tour (LJT). This allows players to compete in local events in which they can earn spots to play in statewide tournaments.
Tournament Exemptions: All players that finish in the top half of each division will earn points towards the LJT Player of the Year Standings. The event is ranked by Junior Golf Scoreboard, Golfweek, and WAGR.
Next Up: The Final Round of the Collegiate Preview is set to begin at 8:00 am off the No. 1 and 10 tees at Lantana Golf Club on Tuesday, June 29.
