Australian teenager Minjee Lee and Kaohsiung-born Candie Kung both shot five-
under 67 to share the HSBC Women’s Champions lead at the top of a tight first-round leaderboard yesterday.
Defending champion Inbee Park was among four players one stroke back and world No. 1 Lydia Ko was four off the pace in tied 27th after a hot, windswept day at the par-72 Serapong Course on Sentosa Island.
Kung shot to the top of the leaderboard with five bogeys and an eagle on the 12th. Two bogeys on the 13th and 15th failed to dislodge the world No. 41 from the tournament lead.
Later Lee, 19, who is seeking her second career victory, joined Kung, 34, at the top, with four birdies and an eagle.
“The wind was a little calm back then [on the 10th hole],” said Kung, who started on the back nine. “I was able to get up there in two and made my putt from about six feet.” [FULL STORY]
