Sung cruised to a bogey free first round -6 under 66 in this Major tournament, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

Sung reported through an interpreter that the course does favor the long hitters, but has swapped putters this week; 

“The course was pretty wet today, but I felt pretty comfortable today.”

 “The course is long and difficult, and I think it’s pretty big benefit for the long hitter.” 

Four ladies are tied in second place at -5 under par, Brooke Henderson, Canada, Brittany Altomare, Jaye Marie Green and Jessica Korda, all from the USA.

Brooke, the 2016 champion, enjoyed the day, making lots of putts;

“It was a lot of fun, I just feel like I was hitting the ball great and making a lot of putts, so hopefully waking up early tomorrow morning and getting the next round started it’ll carry on.” 

 Laetitia Beckthe Tour’s first player from Israel, sprained her ankle last week, this week she is taking it easy, but still carded -4 under 68, to be T6;

“I was hoping this week it would be okay,  maybe it distracts me from what’s going on really.”

“I try to take breaks and I sit a lot, so people probably think I’m lazy.”

“It just felt easy today,  I want a caddie to help me just to know the course better, especially here where it’s a new week.”

“Often, I do my own thing, but having a caddie and someone that I can communicate with about the distance, about the club, it’s nice.”
