Happy happy birthday


PITTSFORD, N.Y. – Juli Inkster was serenaded by the gallery around the first tee Thursday before she started the LPGA Championship.

The crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to her on her 50th birthday.

After Inkster stuffed her tee shot to 3 feet at the ninth hole, the gallery there serenaded her again with the song as she walked onto the green. She holed the putt to go to 3 under, which was good for a tie for second place at the time, a shot behind Seon Hwa Lee.
