Three at the top in Texas
Cristie Kerr, Juli Inkster and Sydnee Michaels are tied at the top after the opening round of the North Texas LPGA Shootout.
The trio are locked on five under having each carded opening rounds of 66 at Las Colinas Country Club in Irvington.
“The greens are really good here,” Kerr told ESPN
“So, if you hit the greens, even if you have a little longer than you wanted with your shot, you have some opportunities. So, it was a good day for me.”
Inkster, a seven time Major winner, is looking for her first win since 2006.
“Hopefully, I can build on this,” revealed the 54-year-old.
“I’m not really looking forward to winning. I mean, as (Jack) Nicklaus said, ‘I’ve played good at first rounds and really haven’t played good my second rounds.'”
The threesome is one stroke ahead of a large group on four under, which includes Lexi Thompson and Angela Stanford.
Meanwhile, world number one Lydia Ko is in danger of missing the cut for the first time in 50 events after she slumped to a four over 75.
Arriving at the 14th on two under par, the New Zealander would drive her ball behind a tree. Ko tried to go over the tree for her second, but the ball never came down.
“I would never have imagined for it to be stuck up there,” said the 18-year-old.
“You just get those days where things that you least expect happen. It’s good to know my caddie is always there to do what’s best for me. I didn’t know he was that good climbing trees.”
Ko would go on to triple bogey the 14th after losing the ball and would drop three more shots on the next two holes.
