Lee on song at US Open
AUSTRALIA’S Minjee Lee enjoyed a bogey- free opening round at the Women’s US Open golf to be three off the pace set by Chian’s Shanshan Feng.
Lee ( right) made back- to- back birdies early on par fours the second and third before making her only other birdie of the round at the par- four 12th to shoot an opening round 69.
The 21- year- old West Australian is joined by a host of players on the score including two- time major champion Cristie Kerr of the USA.
Lee is one shot adrift of New Zealand’s Lydia Ko, who holds a share of third place after an opening round that yielded six birdies but was brought undone by two front- nine bogeys at the par- four fifth and ninth holes.
