Young remains in the lead at the FJ Invitational
Gilchrest makes up a stroke on lead after even-par 70 round

Greensboro, N.C. — Despite falling back two strokes to 6-under-par 204 after a 2-over-par 72 in the third round, Carson Young of Pendleton, S.C., holds onto one-shot lead entering the final round.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the FJ Invitational is a 72-hole stroke play competition played on the par-70 Sedgefield Country Club – Donald Ross Course. The event features 84 boys, ages 15-18, from 26 states and four countries. The Boys Division plays the course at 7,097 yards.

Young and his fellow group member for all three days, Matt Gilchrest of Southlake, Texas entered the third round in first and second, respectively. Eighteen holes later the order remains the same.

However, Gilchrest, who shot a 1-over-par 71 on Thursday, has made up a bit of the two-stroke gap that separated the two after the second round. The big difference came on No. 18 after a one hour and 50 minute rain delay when Gilchrest made par and Young three-putted for bogey.

“Today was a bit confusing,” Gilchrest said. “I was tied for the lead at one point and I cut the deficit in half. But it was a bit disappointing to slip a little bit.”

Young’s lead may have shrunk, but he will always have it in the back of his mind that he’s been here before. He will use the confidence gained from big tournament wins in the past to keep himself even-keeled during the final round.

“[The experience] keeps my nerves down, because I know I’ve been there before,” Young said. “It’s nothing new.”

In a tie for third, six strokes off the lead, are Benjamin Griffin of Chapel Hill N.C., who shot a 1-over-par 71 and George Cunningham of Tucson, Ariz., whose 2-under-par 68 was tied for the second-lowest round of the day. Cunningham’s round was among the steadiest of the week, it was unblemished by bogeys and his pair of birdies boosted him into the top three.

In a three-way tie for fifth at even-par 210 are Zachary Bauchou of Forest, Va., Austin Connelly of Irving, Texas, and Davis Riley of Hattiesburg, Miss. Zecheng Dou of Benjing, China is in eighth at 1-over-par 211. Collin Morikawa of La Canada Flintridge, Calif., is in ninth at 2-over-par 212. In 10th is William Register of Burlington, N.C., at 3-over-par 213.

Final-round tee times will run from 7-9:50 a.m. off the No. 1 tee at Sedgefield Country Club – Donald Ross Course. For more information about the FJ Invitational, please contact Tournament Headquarters at (336)-218-0077.
