Katherine Kirk, Australia, shoots 62 to lead the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic after the first round.
Katherine signed for a bogey free -10 under par 62 and leads the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic by one shot;
“Golf is funny, when you’ve played it as long as I have professionally you realize some days will be good and some will be bad.”
“I know you can go low out there so stepping on the first tee today I just said, let’s play aggressively and go make as many birdies as possible.”
“Thankful it worked out.”
In second place with her opening round -9 under par 63 is Sei Young Kim of South Korea.
Sharing third place are Brittany Marchand, Canada, and Megan Khang, USA, both with first round sores of -8 under 64.
Megan knew the first round score would be low;
“I definitely knew that the course was gettable, low scores are going to be here, just last year I think the winning score was 22 under.”
“This is a course you can be aggressive with, and I personally like to play aggressive.”
“Definitely with the amount of rain we got we knew that we could go after some pins and just kind of take advantage of that because you don’t know how the weather is going to hold up for the rest of the week.”
“I think this will be a good week.”
Brittany was bogey free in her round today;
“I think right now I’ve been feeling good about my game for quite a while.”
“Just kind of little things here and there haven’t really got me to finish where I want to. I like to see rounds like this happen because I feel like I have them in me.”
“The last two tournaments, I felt like I’ve gotten frustrated fast.”
“I think on a course like this, because it’s soft, it’s scorable, especially compared to last week, you don’t want to get your expectations high.”
“I was forcing and expecting myself to do something instead of just letting it happen.”
