A pair of Canadians occupy the top 10 after the first round of the Manulife LPGA Classic at Whistle Bear in Cambridge, Ont.
Hamilton’s Alena Sharp fired a six-under 66 on Thursday and is tied for sixth, two shots behind leaders Suzann Pettersen and Mi Hyang Lee going into Friday’s second round.
“A lot of the holes suit my eye. I lost my yardage book before getting here. I had to get all my new notes, which is kind of a big deal because I have a lot of good notes from the past. I had to start from scratch,” said Pettersen.
“But there are some lines, especially the way the wind is coming now, I think it plays quite deep and in my favour,” she added.
“We woke up this morning to perfect conditions. You can fire at pins and get to par fives, which is fun. I think it’s the best way to set up a golf course and kind of get low scores,” said Pettersen.
Brittany Marchand of Orangeville, Ont., is tied for ninth after she shot a five-under 67 to sit three back.
