The International Championship at Oak Valley not only challenged players physically with a tough walking course with many elevation changes, but also mentally as players faced gusty winds and heated temperatures all week long.

He had four birdies and one eagle to take the lead by two-strokes going into round two. Trailing at 3-under was Taehyun Kim and Ronny Zheng. For the girls, Lauren Kim led round one with a solid even par round. Cindy Yang and Cristen Legaspi followed tied for second at one-over par.

Trailing Emily Song jumped from tied for sixth to second place and Lana Yamagata trailed at +6 in third place. For the boys, Dalian Piao again came out firing, posting a 1-under round to remain in the lead by one stroke. Ronny Zheng and Timothy Jung both posted 2-under par rounds chasing Piao going into the final round.
