She played in a group with # 1 and # 2 players in the world, but the Australian Minjee Lee was less than overwhelmed in Sentosa in Singapore yesterday, while she was again in the clinch during an LPGA Tour event.
Perth & # 39; s Lee, who jumped to number 3 this week, shares the lead with world number 1 Ariya Jutanugarn from Thailand and a number of others after winning an opening 68 in the HSBC Women's World Championship.
The graduate Royal Fremantle began quietly and even after a chip-in-eagle from the pony at the par-five eighth, she was only one-time in twelve holes and in the peloton. But three birdies on the last stretch, after having hit it on the 13th and 15th and then making a bomb from far away in third place from the 17th brought her to the top of the leaderboard.
She shares the highest billing with Jutanugarn, who is the last birdied for a 68, the American Amy Olson, the French Celine Boutier and the Chinese Yu Liu.
"The track is actually pretty heavy," said the Australian after her round. "I mean, it's a bit more jumpy and it's, I think, I have a few longer clubs in some of the holes, it's a bit longer for me, so just stick fairways and try a bit more length of it Get a T-piece and have a good short game, that's a little bit I'm going to work on. & # 39;
