THE WOODLANDS, Texas (Feb. 16, 2013) -- Scott Scheffler of Dallas carded five birdies en route to a 4-under-par 68 to take a two-shot lead over Brad Dalke of McKinney, Texas, at the AJGA's HP Boys Championship.
After Round 1, Scheffler finds himself in a familiar position. At the 2012 Championship at Carlton Woods' Fazio Course, Scheffler shot an opening round 6-under 66 before a second-round 77 and final-round 80, and finished tied for 24th.
Scheffler has looked to keep his play consistent through all three rounds."I hit my irons well and stayed in play. I didn't feel well before the round, but I figured it out," said Scheffler, who is No. 3 in Golfweek/Sagarin Boys Rankings.
"I’m off to a good start," Scheffler added. "And I just want to keep it up.”
To round out the top five, in a three-way tied for third are Rigel Fernandes of Bradenton, Fla., Gordon Neale of Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. and Cameron Champ of Sacramento, Calf., at 1-under 71.
