  ISR    Laetitia went out early and took advantage of the soft greens needing only 26 putts to record a 1st round -7 under par 65;

“The conditions are great, the greens are softer than what I played last year; they were softer so we can attack more, so I think that’s why it’s a scoreable course this year, especially because we can just go for it, especially with having short irons. “

“I think here on this golf course it’s all putting, because it’s a very scoreable course, and hitting a lot of greens, hit the right part of the green, and I think I was doing well making putts, even though I did miss birdie opportunities, but I made good putts for birdies and just kept going.”

“I have been working on my swing in the past month or so, struggled a bit after Australia but last week my game started feeling better.”

“I felt I was going to do well in Texas but I struggled with making putts and my short game wasn’t good at all.”

“That’s why I didn’t make many birdies last week. Today I gave myself a lot of good birdie opportunities and I finally made putts.”

Sharing second place are Annie Park, and Minjee Lee both carding  -5 under par 67 in the opening round keeping them in touch of the leader.

In fourth position is Alejandra Llaneza  with a -4 under par, 68 opening effort.

Morgan PresselVicky Hurst and Candie Kung are T5 with first rounds of -3 under par, 69.
