Minjee Lee and Su Oh from Australia are once again pushing for a victory at the Swinging Skirts tournament of the LPGA Tour in Taiwan.
Lee and Oh both competed in Busan last week, and they are both on the scoreboard after the first round in Taipei City.
West Australian Lee shot a 67 with six birdies and a bogey to be third at five under par, a shot behind South Korea's first-round leader Mi Jung Hur at six under.
Victoria & # 39; s Oh, who had a big chance last week before she faded on the last day, had a share of the lead in the first round for much of her opening round and finished 68th.
Lee said she had gained positive points last week by playing well in Korea. "Yes, sure, I mean, I played pretty well," she said. “I made a few soft mistakes here and there. I think the difference between me is that I have a really, really good lap and that is just like an average lap. I'm just trying to eliminate them and get a good score. "
Oh said she had "learned a lot" in the last group in Busan, and added that she could shake off a premature double bogey sixth at the ninth hole. "I was a little angry, but I didn't like smoking," she said. "I thought maybe I just wanted to make a few birds.
I feel – and then I went as a birdie, birdie, birdie. I was like, oh, okay, that's nicer. "
