Early lead for Pancake
Brooke Pancake took the early lead at the Bahamas LPGA Classic after carding a 67 on Thursday before play was suspended.
Rain fell on Atlantis Resort’s Ocean Club course while several players were still completing the day’s play at the inaugural event which was reduced to three 12-hole rounds because of flooding.
Pancake started the day by birdying six of her first seven holes in her bogey-free round.
“I luckily got to get out early this morning,” she told reporters.
“I gave myself a lot of birdie looks and I really took advantage of those.”
Inbee Park was tied for second with Natalie Gulbis and Brittany Lincicome.
Lydia Ko, playing her first event since taking the No. 1 spot in the world ranking, was 1-under through eight holes.
The 17-year-old New Zealander tied for second last week in the season-opening event in Florida to break Tiger Woods’ record as the youngest player to reach No. 1.
“We’ve still got 10 more holes and I know there are birdie opportunities,” Ko said.
“The 18th is a par 5, too. We’ve just got to stay patient. Hopefully, I will make a couple more birdies down the stretch.”
