So Yeon Ryu of South Korea leads the Toto Japan Classic after the first round at Seta Golf Club in Japan.
So Yeon benefited from good putting;
“For a three-round tournament, you’re better to make sure you have a really, really good starting day.”
“I opened with a really good round, so I’m really happy that hopefully I can have this decent round for two more days.”
“My short game was really great today. I putted really well.”
“I was struggling with my putting the last two weeks in Taiwan and Shanghai, but I’m so glad my putting worked well.”
Local favorite Nasa Hataoka of Japan and Jiyai Shin with In-Kyung Kim both from South Korea are a stroke back at -6 under after rounds of 66 in second place.
