Taipei, Oct. 22 (CNA) Eun-Hee Ji of South Korea fired a 6-under 66
Thursday to take the lead after the first round of the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship, while local favorite Yani Tseng (曾雅妮) achieved the best score among the Taiwanese players, tying for 27th.
Ji, who is 69th in the Rolex Rankings, fired seven birdies and one bogey to take a one-shot lead over her closest competitor, China’s Xi Yu Lin.
“I just (worked) on my short game last week and the week before, because my chipping wasn’t feeling good,” Ji was quoted on the LPGA website as saying after the round.
