Angela Stanford took the 1st-round lead at the Canadian Women’s Open on Thursday with a bogey-less round of 64. The 8-under-par score is a career best for Angela, topping her opening round at the Franklin American Mortgage in Nashville in May. She led after the first round there as well, and went on to finish the week tied for second two shots behind Cristie Kerr.
Speak of the devil…Cristie Kerr, Vicki Goetze-Ackerman and Jee Young Lee carded 67s, while Canadian Lorie Kane, Il Mi Chung and defending champion Meena Lee posted 68. Maybe I was wrong about Meena not playing well enough to challenge this week.
Not much else to say, let’s see what Friday brings.
