In the first round of the 2009 HHSAA David Ishii Boys Golf Championships, Lorens Chan of Iolani sat atop the leaderboard after shooting a 69. Chan put up a 34 on the front nine and a 35 on the way in to hold a two-stroke lead going into Wednesday’s action.
Kaua‘i’s Cory Oride went out with a 37 and came in with a 34 to give him a 71 for the day, good enough to be included in a three-way tie for second place with Punahou’s Bradley Shigezawa and Kamehameha – Maui’s Aaron Kunitomo.
Oride’s sister, Kelli, finished in second place in last week’s HHSAA Girls Championship with a 150 during her two rounds.
Kaua‘i’s Wiley Yoshioka came in strong with a 35 on the back nine to finish with a 75 on the day, putting him six strokes off the pace and tied for 10th place.
Kapa‘a’s Sean Mamaclay shot an 80 to place him tied for 36th among the field of 120 participants.
Levi Miyashiro of Kaua‘i shot an 82 to put him in a tie for 47th place.
Weston Moniz of Kapa‘a put up a 43-41 to total 84 on the day.
Kaua‘i’s Jordan Oda finished with an 87 while teammates Kyle Furusho and Darren Valencia shot rounds of 89 and 91, respectively.
As a team, Kaua‘i is right in the mix with a total of 315 after one round. Iolani leads the way at 299, but a number of teams are all in the hunt as seven teams finished the day with scores between 310 and 322.
