Stephenson Halfway to Title Defense

Stephenson halfway to title defense after Bojangles Junior Open 1st Round
Patrick Stephenson fired a five-under-par 67 to take the first round lead.



Snow Hill, N.C. (June 4-5, 2016) –First round results from Bojangles Junior Open hosted by Cutter Creek GC in Snow Hill, N.C on Saturday, June 4, 2016 (6 ,965yards, par 36-36--72, Course/Slope Rating: 73.9/141).

The weather was in question throughout the first round of play at the 2nd Bojangles Junior Open. Patrick Stephenson left nobody questing his ability to defend after firing a five-under-par 67 to take a 3 shot lead into the final round. “I have always played this golf course pretty well,” Stephenson Said. The East Carolina University commit got off to a quick start with birdies on Nos. 2 and 4. “I managed to make a 40 footer on No. 2. That was nice, kind of unexpected. Then on No. 4 we all hit it tight to about six feet and I got a good read,” The Four Oaks N.C. product explained. Another birdie on No. 7 allowed Stephenson to make the turn three-under-par. The high school senior got it to four-under with a birdie on the par-five 11th before his only blemish on the card, a bogy at No. 13. The defending champion created additional separation with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 16 and 17. Stephenson has registered three straight under-par rounds at the Bojangles Junior Open and has held the lead after every round. 

Grayson Wotnosky of Wake Forest, N.C. used a quick birdie on his first hole to propel himself to a two-under-par 70. The rising high school freshman started on the backside and recorded another birdie on the par-three 15th. The fifteen year-old suffered a bogey on No. 1 but bounced back with a birdie on No. 2. Wotnosky used seven straight pars to finish in second place.

Jake Rutter of Winston-Salem, N.C. also got off to a fast start. The high school junior birdied No. 1 to set the tone for a three-under-par 33 on the front nine. Rutter was able to ride the ship after a difficult back nine with a birdie on his finishing hole leaving him in third place.
