2 share LPGA lead

WASHINGTON (AFP) – South Korean teen rookie Chun Youngin and Canada’s Alena Sharp each fired a seven-under par 64 to share the lead after Thursday’s opening round of the LPGA Marathon Classic.

Chun, a 19-year-old who has missed eight cuts in 11 starts this year, fired the low round of her LPGA career, a bogey-free effort to stun herself by topping the leaderboard at Highland Meadows in Sylvania, Ohio.

Sharing second on 65 were Germany’s Caroline Masson, Sweden’s Jenny Haglund, American Stacy Lewis and Spain’s Azahara Munoz.

Chun’s best LPGA result came in her 2017 debut when she shared 43rd at the New Zealand Women’s Open.
