Leaders breaking away from AJGA field

NORMAN — Two days into the American Junior Golf Association’s Sooner Junior All-Star at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club and Nathan Jeansonne has gone from very good to, just maybe, untouchable.

Jeansonne, from Keithville, La., who will be a sophomore in high school when he departs Norman, followed his opening-round 70 with a second-round 65 on Wednesday.

Among a national field of 72 golfers, Jeansonne has posted the lowest score of the tournament on consecutive days to lead Varun Chopra by seven strokes and Sam Sicard and Dylan Deogun by nine strokes.

Deogun played bogey free, making birdie at Nos. 4, 7, 8, 10, 13, 14 and 18.

Chopra, just an eighth grader from Champaign, Ill., with rounds of 71-71, has posted the second-lowest round in the field on consecutive days.

Edmond’s Austin Eckroat, leads Oklahomans, tied in 10th place after rounds of 76-73.

Three Norman golfers are in the field, led by Thomas Johnson, tied for 37th after rounds of 79-76. Connor Mears is tied for 56th after carding 81-79. Hunter Austin is 69th after scoring 83-86.


Dow leads girls: Courtney Dow, from Frisco, Texas, by way of a second-round 69 leads at 3-under 141, four strokes in front of Kristen Gillman, from Austin, Texas, and Hiu Lam Vanessa Yan, from Hong Kong.

A long way from home, Yan answered an opening 78 with a Wednesday 67.

Edmond’s Madison Luitwieler, leading in-state players, is tied for ninth after rounds of 80-75.

Norman’s Kaitlin Milligan, still a year away from high school, is tied in 15th place after rounds of 77-81.
