Press Trust of India San Francisco
Aditi Ashok made a good start with a birdie on her second hole, but dropped a bunch of bogeys on the next few holes to turn in two-over 38 in the first round of the LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship.
Starting from the back nine at the Lake Merced Golf Club, Aditi had four bogeys between 12th and 18th.
She played more steady on the second nine with one birdie and no bogeys to finish at 73 and was Tied-63rd on a cool and breezy opening day, where 20 mph gusts made things difficult for players in afternoon.
Rounds of 4-under 68 put Lydia Ko, Caroline Hedwall, In-Kyung Kim, Jessica Korda and Su Oh on top of the crowded leaderboard.
Lexi Thompson, Charley Hull, Sei Young Kim and Celine Herbin sit one back.
Four years ago, Lydia Ko won her first event as a member of the LPGA Tour at Lake Merced Golf Club. She has a tattoo of the date on the wrist to remember it by. Ko won the 2014 and 2015 Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic at Lake Merced.
