Two ladies are tied at the top of the Bank of Hope Founders Cup leaderboard after round one at Wildfire Golf Club in Arizona, Chella Choi, South Korea, and Karine Icher, France, share the honor.
Chella and Karine are at the top of the Bank of Hope Founders Cup leaderboard after shooting opening rounds of -5 under par 67.
Karine said she had putted well;
“I made some good putts and that made the difference.”
“I hit good second shots. On this course, if you start getting confidence you can go low. “
“It was a good front nine. On the back nine, I made two bogeys at the end, but with the wind picking up, it’s a little bit hard.”
Chella mentioned the wind, and how tough the day was;
”It was windy and tough out there, but every player in same condition.”
Six ladies are then tied in third spot at -4 under par as play was suspended for the day due to darkness, but these players have finished their first rounds of 68, Cydney Clanton, USA, Mariajo Uribe, Spain, Lizette Salas, USA, Inbee Park, South Korea, Ariya Jutanugarn, Thailand, and Hee Young Park, South Korea.
