Lewis fires career-best 7-under par 64 on day one at Karsten
TEMPE — Riley Lewis’ 7-under par 64 on day one of the 2018 Arizona Junior Masters Invitational set him up for a tournament victory after turning in an even-par 71 on day two of the tournament in Tempe on Wednesday afternoon.
The 135 (-7) stroke score in Tempe is a career best for Lewis.
Tuesday’s 7-under par performance came on the heels of seven birdies and 11 pars at Arizona State’s Karsten Golf Course, giving the Prescott native a four-stroke lead heading into day two of the tournament.
Lewis, a junior at BASIS Prescott, started day two with a double bogey but regained his momentum to finish with a 71 at the Junior Golf Association of Arizona event, which hosted 32 players from across the state.
Lewis’ younger brother Trevor also participated in the event, firing a 16-over par 158 to finish 23rd overall.
