Cristie Kerr leads the way at the Wegman’s LPGA after a round of 66. Alena Sharp is second one shot behind with Suzann Pettersen alone in third, two strokes back. Lorena Ochoa, Mi Hyun Kim and Brittany Lincicome are tied for fourth after opening with rounds of 69.
They must have played “into the gloamin’”, as they used to say, because all of the players completed 18 holes last night – the final groups finished near 9pm according to lpga.com. Fortunately Thursday was the longest day of the year (for daylight, anyway – all days are 24 hours long, duh!). Severe thunderstorms caused the two-hour delay.
Other notable scores include:
70 Morgan Pressel, Paula Creamer, Angela Stanford, Young Kim
71 Seon Hwa Lee, Jeong Jang, Jee Young Lee
72 Karrie Webb
73 Se Ri Pak, Ai Miyazato, Sarah Lee
74 Pat Hurst, Nicole Castrale, Sherri Steinhauer
76 Juli Inkster, Grace Park, Angela Park
77 Julieta Granada
78 Natalie Gulbis
Stacy Prammanasudh and Young Jo both withdrew before the event started due to injury.
