The Pakster is doing the color commentary ... they'll probably reserve the chump events for Young Kim.
They showed mighty fine Char Young Kim hit a shot from the fairway. She wasn't wearing a mask ... good, that face should not be covered. I think she'd pick up a few fans in Japan if she joined the JLPGA ... she's at the right age.
They are NOT playing "hacker" golf, which means no spacer in the cups and the flags are being removed, if necessary.
Big Mama Ahn started at #10 (below) with two unknowns and is -2 thru six holes. She narrowly missed about a 7-foot birdie putt at the par-3 17th.

Stream's working great so far. I feel so blessed to be seeing this, the world debut of professional stroke play tournament golf. Korean women's golf fans truly are the luckiest women's golf fans in the world.
Just punched in the link to the CBC's page, and as I feared their stream is geoblocked outside of Canada. It very likely is the same as the YouTube stream from SBS Golf anyway so look forward to that unless someone secured the domestic rights in whatever country you're in.
The good news is that I was able to watch a couple of minutes of the YouTube link online. Great picture and commentary. I watched Da Yeon struggle in the woods. The bad news is that I fell asleep, and hours later, the page is still there but now requires a sign in. My guess is that it went away once the event was finished, but it's annoying that they couldn't keep the link live for us to watch at our leisure.

Jeong Eun Lee6 got off to a slow start with a double bogey on the first hole. She made another bogey before that long birdie putt. That settled her down and she made another birdie. She just missed a short birdie putt the next hole.
Da Yeon Lee also got off to a slow ball striking start. It seemed that her swing was flatter than usual.
Mighty Mite Seung Yeon Lee is having a slow start to the year.
