Memphis Golfer 1-Stroke off Pace at Southern Jr. Championships

GREENSBORO, Ga. (AP) - Texan Jade Scott used a birdie on the

17th hole to take a one-stroke lead after two rounds of the

Southern Junior Golf Championship at Reynolds Landing.

Scott, of Daingerfield, Texas, shot a 70 on Wednesday for a

two-round total of 5-under-par 139, a stroke better than Will

Pearson of Memphis, Tenn., in the 15-18 age group of the 54-hole

tournament.

Scott's 6-iron to the par-3 17th lipped the cup, leaving him

with a birdie putt.

Pearson took sole possession of second place with a

birdie-eagle-birdie run on the back nine.
