Tillie Claggett Leads Texas Girls’ Invitational
MONTGOMERY – Tillie Claggett fires a 4-under 68 in the second round of the Texas Girls’ Invitational and leads by three strokes at Bentwater Yacht & Country Club heading into Sunday’s final round.
Claggett posted rounds of 71-68 on Saturday to take the lead in the final major of the LJT season. She played two consistent rounds, totaling eight birdies over both rounds to reach the 5-under mark. Her second round of 68 in the afternoon consisted of five birdies and only one bogey.
The Texas Girls’ Invitational is a 54-hole stroke-play event for girls and is playing as the final Major Tournament on the Legends Junior Tour Schedule. The event was rescheduled from February due to the winter storm and is being contested over two days. Rounds 1 & 2 were played in morning and afternoon tee times Saturday, with the final round set for Sunday morning. Players earned their way into the field by playing in Texas Junior Golf Alliance Events. Claggett is seeking her first major victory at the Texas Girls’ Invitational and her second win with the Legends Junior Tour.
Trailing Claggett by three strokes is Grace Jin of San Antonio and Jiyu Han of Cedar Park. Jin was the co-leader with Claggett after the first round, and ultimately posted rounds of 71-71 to get to 2-under 142 overall. Jin played the stretch of holes 15-18 at 6-under over both rounds. Han matched Claggett’s second round of 4-under 68 and rebounded from her opening round of 2-over 74 to make the final group on Sunday.
In fourth is Houston’s Ashleen Kaur. Like Han, Kaur also bounced back in the second round by posting 2-under 70 to finish at even-par 144 overall. Mexico’s Sara Tomaszewski, Fulshear’s Tristan Gabbard, and Austin’s Darrelyn Webster are all tied for fifth at 1-over 145.
Chaemin Kim of Austin, and Lauren Madson of Mansfield are tied for eighth at 2-over 146. Madson used a stretch of four straight birdies in her second round to pull within the top ten. Yvonne Chamness of Austin and Maelynn Kim of Katy both finished tied for 10th at 3-over 147.
Bentwater Yacht & Country Club is hosting the Texas Girls’ Invitational for the sixth time in the tournament’s 12-year history. The Weiskopf course was designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish and features rolling fairways and greens that seem to emerge form the thick forests of hardwood pines. The Weiskopf course features a great closing nine that is highlighted by four holes that play along the shores of Lake Conroe.
The weather at Bentwater Yacht & Country Club cooperated for each round with temperatures peaking in the high-80s and working down to the low-80s in the afternoon, thanks to passing rain showers in the area. The sunshine was out until 2:00 pm until intermittent showers left the rest of the day wet and cloudy. Winds ranged from three mph in the morning, to 8-10 mph in the late afternoon.
Pairings for the final round of the Texas Girls Invitational were redrawn according to scores from the first two rounds. The final round will begin off the No. 1 and No. 10 tees starting at 8:00 AM. To see all the pairings for the final round, click here.
