The opening round on October 8 recorded Brittany Lincicome and Kelly Tan sharing the top score with a score of -3 at the major women’s event in Pennsylvania.
On Aronimink par 70, Lincicome played an average of 282 yards, hit nine in 14 fairways, went to standard green (GIR) in 17 out of 18 holes and used a total of 32 shots. In the entire round of 67 strokes, she scored four birdies, one bogey and 13 par points.
Tan averaged just 227 yards on his header, hit the fairway equivalent of Lincicome, and scored a GIR 15 out of 18 holes for a total of 30 putts. From start to finish, she scored five birdies, two bogeys and kept par 11 holes.
Lincicome has twice won major ANA Inspiration in eight LPGA Tour titles. Her most recent title was at the 2018 LPGA Classic in the Bahamas. Last July, Lincicome gave birth at the age of 34 and had to stop fighting until the end of the year. She returned to play and finished T18 in the Tournament of Champions earlier this year, but then went on a reluctant translation vacation. And when the American arena reopened, Lincicome passed seven leagues but never finished higher than T45.
“Since the birth of my daughter Emery, I have been hanging sticks for quite a while for my family and Covid-19. Then in the new calendar, every week I have been in a position to try to cut it out. eight times the LPGA Tour champion, “Lincicome once said during a down season.
And Tan has yet to finish higher than 30, like in the US Women’s Open’s 2016 in previous majors. The 26-year-old Malaysian Golfer is also looking for his first title at the LPGA Tour. Even so, she is still optimistic about the win in Pennsylvania, as eight of the recent nine major champions have all made their first place on the podium.
