A good start which contrasts with Agathe Laisne. The Parisian alternated five bogeys and three birdies in this first round. She struggles on her faceoffs with only 8 fairways which only allowed her to reach 12 greens in regulation. With this 73 (+2), the 23-year-old is beyond 100th place.
Scramble to the top of the leaderboard
Three dots ahead Celine Herbin, they are three to occupy the top of the ranking after cards of 65 (-6). If the Chinese Ruoning Yin conceded a bogey in her day, the Spaniard Carlota Ciganda and the Korean Hye Jin Choi have made no mistakes on the course of Highland Meadows Golf Club located in Ohio.

Missed comeback for Paula Creamer
The pink panther is back. We are not talking about the fictional character created by Friz Frelengbut many Paula Creamer. The winner theUS Women’s Open in 2010 was back after more than a year’s break, she hadn’t appeared in competition since theAmundi Evian Championship of last year. In the meantime, she gave birth to a baby girl, Hilton Pink.
His first card after his return will not go down in history, however. Indeed, the one who occupies the 14th place in the Career Money List signed a heavy 77 (+6) despite two birdies to end his day. But the 36-year-old golfer had previously conceded five bogeys and two doubles.
