Sandra Gal birdied six of her last 9 holes and leads the Meijer Classic at the Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids, MI. Gal carded seven birdies and one lone bogey in her opening round 65, six under par. Former women’s number one Inbee Park is hot on Gal’s heels after a brilliant round of 66 and is at five under par just one shot back of the leader. Park is looking to regain her number one spot back this week and is off to a great start.
Young Aussie Katherine Kirk sits alone in third with a round of under par 67. There is a six way tie for fourth at three under par, including Line Vedel, Gerina Piller, Amy Yang, Katy Harris, Ilhee Lee, and Azahara Munoz. World number two ladies golfer Michelle Wie had to withdraw after only nine holes with a hand injury. This looks to be a great week of golf in this inaugural event.
