LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Liu Yu broke her personal scoring record for the second straight year at the Thornberry Creek Classic tournament with a bogey-free 62 on Thursday.
Liu shot 10-under to take a one-shot lead over American rookie Yealimi Noh and South Korean Lee Jeong-eun after the first round of the LPGA Tour event in Oneida, Wisconsin.
Liu’s previous personal best was a 63 in the second round of this tournament in 2018.
Liu wasn’t the only player from China who had a solid opening round. Feng Shanshan shot an eight-under 64 and is tied for fourth with Tiffany Chan of Hong Kong and five others.
