Shin leads Gal at the ShopRite LPGA Classic

RSS

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. – Third-ranked Jiyai Shin of South Korea shot a 5-under 66 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead over playing partner Sandra Gal of Germany after the wind-whipped opening round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Catriona Matthew of Scotland was two shots back, while fourth-ranked ranked Cristie Kerr, No. 6 I.K. Kim, Karen Stupples, Vicky Hurst and Lindsey Wright opened with 69s. Michelle Wie had a 72.

The surprise of the day was the conditions on the Bay Course at Seaview. For years, conditions have been calm at the links-type course in the shadow of Atlantic City, and there were birdies galore.

Strong gusts more blew off the bay and the majority of the field was over par.
