Rikako Morita Leads 2012 Stanley Ladies After 1st Round; Defending Champion Chie Arimura 1 Shot Back

Rikako Morita

2-time JLPGA winner Rikako Morita sprinted out to the lead at the 2012 Stanley Ladies with a 6-under 66. Her round was highlighted by an eagle on the par 5 8th. Unfortunately, she followed the eagle on 8 with a bogey on 9, but it was her only bogey of the day against 5 birdies. Defending champion Chie Arimura had a clean 5 birdie round to sit 1 back at 5-under with Erina Yamato. My favorite JLPGA player, Sakura Yokomine struggled out of the gate at 2-over. Sakura-chan matched Arimura’s 5 birdies, but rode a feast or famine round with 3 bogeys and 2 double bogeys. It was far better for Shiho Oyama, playing her first event of the season. She is 3 shots back at 3-under. The 8th hole must have been heaven-sent for the players in round one. Like Rikako Morita, Oyama also eagled the 8th. 6 of the top 8 players either eagled or birdied the 8th hole.
