Preston Summerhays grabs Junior Players Championship lead at TPC Sawgrass

Preston Summerhays of Scottsdale, Arizona played his last 10 holes at 4-under with no bogeys to card a 68 on Saturday at the Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, taking a one-shot lead into the final round of the AJGA Junior Players Championship.

Summerhays birdied Nos. 9 and 10 (the latter with an 80-foot putt), then added back-to-back birdies at Nos. 15 and 16 to finish at 6-under-par 138. Caleb Surratt (69) of Indian Trail, North Carolina, and William Love (68) of Atlanta are tied for second at 5-under.

Another shot behind are Zach Kingsland (71) of Austin, Texas, Brendan Valdes (69) of Orlando, Florida and Australia’s Karl Villips (69).

Vilips, a Stanford commit, is playing in a record fifth Junior Players, and has never finished outside the top-10.
