BUFORD, Ga. (June 19, 2012) -- Defending champion Rachel Dai of Milton and Jordan Daniel of Newnan are tied at 1-under-par 143 going into the final round of the 33rd annual Georgia Girls' Championship, taking place at Legacy on Lanier Golf Club.

Dai, who led Daniel by a stroke after an opening-round 68, carded a 75 in the second round. After turning even, Dai went +4 over her last six holes, including a double-bogey (13) and a birdie at the par-5 17th. Daniel carded 74 (37-37) on Tuesday with three birdies, three bogeys and one double.

Kayla Jones of Alpharetta currently sits in third place, trailing the leaders by three strokes at 146 (75-71). 2010 Georgia Girls' Champion Jessica Haigwood of Roswell, Ji Eun Baik of Newnan and Haley Austin of McDonough are tied for fourth at 150.

The top four finishers in the Championship will be invited to represent Georgia (provided they are at least 14 years old) in the seventh annual Georgia-South Carolina Girls’ Junior Challenge Match, a match-play team competition between the two states, later this summer.
