Ariya Jutanugarn is the 1st round leader at the Reignwood LPGA Classic in China.
Ariya, from Thailand, carded -8 under par 65 to lead the Reignwood LPGA Classic by just one shot on this peculiar par 73 lay-out.
Ariya stayed focus on her objective for the week;
“Today I really like want to have fun and enjoy in the course, and just like make sure I do like focus on like what’s under my control.”
“Not worry about the outcome, the result.”
“Feel good, because like this year the only goal I want to do is I want to win my first tournament, so I did.”
“So after I won my first tournament on tour I really want to win a major, and I did.”
Sitting in second place is Brooke Henderson, from Canada, on her first ever visit to China, an opening round -7 under par 66 was very comfortable;
“It was an awesome day today, and to get the birdies to finish up on 17 and 18 were really nice.”
“Definitely a good start, so hopefully the next three days will go well.”
Seven ladies share third place at -5 under par, Jennifer Song, Yanhong Pan, Mi Jung Hur, Ziqi Ye, Lizette Salas, Taoli Yang and Shanshan Feng.
