SYLVANIA, Ohio – Pernilla Lindberg holed birdie putts of 40 and 50 feet and added three 25-footers in a round of 7-under 64 to take a two-shot lead Thursday after the rainy opening round of the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic.
The 26-year-old Swede, a former Oklahoma State player, hasn't finished in the top 10 of an LPGA event in her three years and 36 starts as a pro. She has missed the cut in six of her 10 starts this season.
But she drained a 50-foot putt for birdie at No. 5, made a 40-footer for a 2 on the par-3 14th and made 25-footers at Nos. 4, 12 and 18.
