Staff report

CONCORD — Michael Childress of Salisbury fired a 4-under par 68 at Cabarrus Country Club on Tuesday and has the first-round lead in the 12th Dogwood State Junior Golf Championship.

Childress, a rising junior at Cannon School, has a one-stroke lead over Fulton Smith of Pinehurst and Spencer Oxendine of Fayetteville, both of whom shot 3-under par 69s.

The Dogwood State Junior Championship is 54 holes of stroke play.  After 36 holes, there will be a cut to the low 60 players and ties.

Childress had two seven birdies during Tuesday’s first round. He had two of the birdies and two bogeys on the front nine for an even-par 36. He caught fire on the back nine, with three straight birdies on holes 10-12. After three pars and a bogey on the next four holes, Childress concluded with two more birdies, including one of the par-5, 613-yard finishing hole.

He tees off this afternoon at 1:36, off No. 10, in his second round.

Two other Salisbury junior golfers are playing in the event.

Logan Shuping, who enrolls at East Carolina later this month, is tied for 113th place at 83.
