Celina Yeo of London, Ontario, Canada, leads after the second round of the 2024 Rolex Girls Junior Championship with a tournament total score of 10-under-par 134.

Yeo, after leading the first round, started her second round on the front nine with eight consecutive pars. After building momentum, Yeo carded an eagle on the par-5 No. 9. This is the second straight day that Yeo has shot a bogey-free front-nine.

Yeo posted a strong back-nine as well. Her first bogey of the day was on No. 11. She carded four birdies on Nos. 10, 13, 16, and 17. Yeo shot a 4-under-par 68 and leads by three strokes with one day of play remaining.

Yeo is a member of the 2023 AJGA Junior All-Star Team and has eight top-10 AJGA career finishes on her resume. The 2026 grad is searching for her first AJGA win this week.

Elizabeth Rudisill, of Charlotte, North Carolina finished three shots back from Yeo at 7-under-par 137. Rudisill fired off six birdies throughout her round to secure solo-second place.

At No. 44 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings, Rudisill is making her second appearance in the Rolex Girls Junior Championship. The 2025 grad's last win came in 2022 at the Buick Shanshan Feng AJGA Girls Invitational.

In a two-way tie for third place, Anna Fang of San Diego, California and Avery McCrery of Wilmington, Delaware, sit at 5-under-par 139.
