PATTAYA, Thailand – Ariya Jutanugarn and Amy Yang both shot 6-under 66 in the first round Thursday to take a share of the lead at the LPGA Thailand.
Jutanugarn, ranked second in the world, had six birdies while Yang, the 2015 champion, had seven birdies and a bogey at the Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course.
''In the middle, during the round, I had some time I couldn't control the ball, but I still had a lot of good shots,'' Yang said. ''Gave myself a lot of good opportunities out there.''
''I don't feel much of the injury anymore,'' said Park, the winner in Pattaya in 2013. ''Ball-striking was really good today. Just around the greens wasn't as sharp as I wanted. Obviously that's just going to happen. Just got to be patient.''
