to grab a share of the lead with Stacy Lewis after the opening round of the LPGA Volvik Championship.

Hsu’s seven-under-par equaled the second-best round of her LPGA Tour career and was an incredible 13-stroke improvement over her opening round last year at the Travis Pointe Country Club in Ann Arbor.

“It was really great start. I mean from the very first hole,” said Hsu, who shot a 78 in the first round last year and missed the cut.

“I had my seven-iron and I just hit it right at the pin. I didn’t see it very well. I just heard my mom and the gallery on the side, and they were all just cheering,” she added.
