Angela Stanford Has Round Of The Day, Shot Of The Day En Route To Day One Lead At 2011 RR Donnelley Founders Cup

Angela Stanford

What do you do after you just double bogeyed the previous hole and followed up with a tee shot into a bunker? If you’re a weekend warrior you probably curse the Golf Gods while looking around to see if anybody would notice if you “improved your lie”, if you know what I mean. However, if you’re Angela Stanford, you follow with maybe the shot of the year so far in this young LPGA season. She pulled out an 8-iron and dropped in a 142 yard eagle on the par 4 9th that helped her to a first round 6-under 66 that puts her one shot up on Aree Song and Brittany Lincicome. Outside of her double bogey-eagle on 8 and 9, Stanford had 6 birdies including 3 of the 4 par 5s. She will need to continue to take advantage of the par 5s with Bam-Bam (Brittany Lincicome) on her heels playing a course that suits her.

“Especially the par 5s,” Lincicome said. “They’re not crazy long, but being a long hitter I have a better chance to get there in two. It got kind of windy there on the last couple of holes, and having a wedge into some of those holes is going to be a lot easier than a longer iron.

“Even my wedge is releasing 5-7 yards, so just think of these girls who are hitting 7 irons or 8 irons. You have to allow for a lot of release. So definitely length is going to come into play this week for sure.”

Juli Inkster

Also lurking in the top 5 are veterans Juli Inkster and Sophie Gustafson, both at 4-under. Sophie was actually 5-under after 5 holes, birdying 1, 2 and 3 and nailing eagle on 5. But she went on a 1-over roller coaster after that, with 3 bogeys and 2 birdies to finish.
