CLEVELAND, TENN (June 28th, 2017) Cleveland Country Club provides a test from the first tee shot. The first hole is the start of the hardest four-hole stretch on the golf course. “If you can get through Nos. 1-4 you have a chance to put up a decent number,” Cleveland Country Club Head Professional Lamar Mills said earlier this week. Yesterday Coleman Jones found a way to birdie two of those first four holes. Today, he matched those birdies on Nos. 1-2. Playing that stretch a combined four-under-par has allowed the rising high school senior to separate himself. “I started off well today, the same way I started yesterday, which is a good way to start” Jones said. Playing the rest of the 28 holes one-under-par is still impressive, but the Sneds Tour Tournament of Champions Ranking leader acknowledged he left a few shots out there. “I missed a few birdie opportunities out there so I look forward to getting back at it tomorrow and keeping it going,” While this is Jones’s first time in contention at the Junior Amateur Championship, his success in other evets this summer leaves him confident heading into the final round. “I have struggled in the Junior Amateur but this summer I have been playing better, I look forward to being in that final group,” Jones said.


Joining Jones at the top of the leaderboard is round one leader Alex Cobb. Cobb backed up an opening round five-under-par 66 with an even par 71. “I slept alright last night, I was excited about today,” Cobb said. Unlike Jones, Cobb stumbled out of the gate with an opening bogey. However, the rising high school senior proceeded to par the rest of the front nine. Cobb made his first birdie of the day on No. 10 but gave it back with a bogey on No. 11. Cobb got back to even for the round and five-under-par for the tournament with a birdie on No. 14. “I thought I hit the ball really well today but I couldn’t get it rolling on the greens. I ended up with a good score so it was a good day,” Cobb said. The Class of 2018 product knows he will have to earn the championship tomorrow, “I have to stay aggressive out there, that is the key to making birdies,” Cobb said. Joining the leaders in the final pairing will be Trenton Johnson. Johnson is one of four players tied for third at one-under-par. The other three players at one-under-par are Kyle Cottom, Spencer Cross, and Bogle LaRue.

The final round of the 54thTennessee Junior Amateur will begin at 8:00 a.m. Thursday. Live scoring will be available with hole-by-hole scoring for the final two groups.

About the Tennessee Golf Association

In 1914, the Tennessee Golf Association (TGA) was organized at Memphis Country Club as an association of five private clubs. The objective of the Association, as stated in its Constitution, "shall be to promote the game of golf in Tennessee." From these small origins the TGA has become an association which now includes over 200 member clubs, courses, and organizations, comprised of over 32,000 individuals from across the state.
