Sweden’s Maria Hjorth leads the LPGA Brasil Cup 2010 after the first 18 holes, having recovered from a poor start to Saturday’s first of two rounds.
Hjorth had found herself two-over-par after just three holes, but produced seven birdies between the fourth and 12th holes to bring herself back into contention and then take a one-shot lead over Meaghan Francella and Mariajo Uribe.
Hjorth said: “The hardest part today was not getting off to a good start with bogies at two and three.
“With a 36-hole event, you want to come out fast and shoot a good round. I started over again and refocused and knew I would have birdies chances. I tried to give myself as many birdie chances as I could.”
