Son, Barbaree lead Junior PGA Championship

BRYAN, Texas (AP) Yujeong Son matched the women's course record with a 7-under 64 on Monday to take the first-round lead in the Junior PGA Championship, and U.S. Junior Amateur champion Philip Barbaree topped the boys' leaderboard at 66.

The 14-year-old Son, from Norman, Oklahoma, had eight birdies and a bogey to tie the Miramont Country Club women's record set in the event last year by Ellen Takada.
