The 70th annual U.S. Junior Amateur golf tournament is underway at Flint Hills National in Andover. 

156 golfers age 18-and-under from around the world hit the course for the opening round of stroke play on Monday.

Wells Padgett, who just graduated from Maize South High School, placed tied for fifth; the Wichita native shot a 4-under par 67.

The second round of stroke play takes place on Tuesday, narrowing the field down to the top 64, who will advance to match play on Wednesday.
