ROLEX TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS — At Alpharetta, Ga., Dylan Wu shot an opening-round 73 and was in 40th place in the American Junior Golf Association invitational at Capital City Club.
Wu's score was 3 over par. He had two birdies and two bogeys and was even par through 14 holes. But a bogey on No. 15 and a double bogey at the 17th dropped the Medford 15-year-old back.
Five players were tied for first with 68s, including Matthew NeSmith, who won an AJGA tournament in North Carolina two weeks ago in which Wu tied for third. NeSmith received exemption into a PGA event with that victory.
