The field of 132 is posted ... I'm guessing there is some kind of sponsor connection to Thailand, since the field includes three Thais ... one is Bud Sukapan, who has played Japan's scrub tour in recent years and I think I might have seen her once at the Seaview ... another familiar name there is hotshot amateur Rina Tatematsu (Oklahoma St.).
Korea's top ams Hwang & Bang will be playing ... I guess they have their own version of NIL over there, as logos from Lotte and KB Star are next to their names, respectively.
Good first round for Hee Jeong Lim, five birdies one bogey. Her ball striking was really great. Especially on her par five tenth hole where she holed out from fairway for par. She must have hit a tee shot in the hazard. She made birdie on two and three but missed two short birdie putts on four and five.
Yewon Lee game is still a little off, but three under is pretty good.
Dasom Ma had a great round of minus five. Mighty Mite Seung Yeon Lee had a good round of minus three.
Ina Yoon had a mind boggling 11 on the par 5 10th. Here's how it played out:
1 Tee shot into bunker 2. Duffed, still in sand 3. Hit OB 4 penalty 5 52 yards into rough, but at least out of that bunker! 6 128 yards into middle of fairway 7 OB again from just 94 yards 8 penalty 9 4 yards past hole 10 1 foot past hole 11 in!
She finished +4 for the day, meaning she was -2 outside of the 10th hole...
Oh, did I mention that that was her first hole of the day? And on the next hole, she had an ACE. Craaaaazy.
