Cristie Kerr, Brittany Lincicome, Lizette Salas Lead 2012 US Women’s Open After First Round; Lexi Thompson 1 Shot Back

Cristie Kerr

Following right on the heels of Independence Day, a trio of Americans, Cristie Kerr, Lizette Salas and Brittany Lincicome, lead the 2012 United States Women’s Open at 3-under. Young American phenom Lexi Thompson is 1 shot back at 2-under. Those are pretty impressive scores considering that not only is this a US Open set-up on a long course, but all the players are dealing with a smothering heat out there. For both the players and spectators, I wonder when even with staying hydrated, the conditions become unsafe.

Lizette Salas

Of course, leading any tournament after the 1st round is a nice achievement, but as they say you don’t win a tournament in the 1st round. But while Cristie  Kerr and Brittany Lincicome have triumphed on the LPGA Major stage before, rookie Lizette Salas is trying to accomplish what her idol, Nancy Lopez, was unable to do, win the US Women’s Open. On the other hand, while Cristie has already won a USWO, Bam-Bam’s game seems built to inevitably win one…or two…or three…

Yani Tseng

World #1 Yani Tseng’s quest for the career Grand Slam launched with a shaky start at 2-over, but it’s early. We’ve seen the amazing Tseng chase the field down and pass them before. I expect the Taiwanese star to pull back to at least even par after round 2. Also tied with Lexi Thompson 1 shot back are the talented Ai Miyazato and Beatriz Recari, both of whom are seeking their first LPGA Major.
