Ai Miyazato, Pernilla Lindberg Lead After 1st Round Of 2011 CN Canadian Women’s Open; Peanut Showing Signs Of Good Play On Day One

Mi Hyun Kim

Oh my, I have to check the calendar. What year are we in? First, Se Ri Pak and Grace Park get off to a hot start last week at the Safeway Classic. Now, Peanut (Mi Hyun Kim) is 2 shots off the lead after the first round of the 2011 CN Canadian Open. Is it 2004? Three of the original four “Seoul Sisters” are showing signs that they are finding their game. Somebody keep an eye on Hee Won Han, the other player in the Seoul Sisters fantastic four. She’ll probably go out and shoot 65 tomorrow! Peanut had fallen a bit from her best years due to taking time off to have a baby and get married. She talks about that, and her first round, here:

And speaking of her best years, Peanut was (is) a great player on the LPGA tour. She is an 8-time winner. And she has a heart of gold. When she won SemGroup in 2007, this is what she did:

Ai Miyazato

Amazing that nobody in Ai Miyazato’s group had a bogey. Although not a big hitter, Ai spoke of her long irons and hybrid control. She birdied 3 of the 4 par 5s with 15 of 18 greens in regulation.

Pernilla Lindberg

Perhaps not as expected to some was Pernilla Lindberg on top of the leaderboard at 7-under with Miyazato. If you think Miyazato’s 15 of 18 greens in regulation was good, try 17 of 18 greens in regulation for Pernilla. Her only blemish on her 8 birdie day was a bogey on 13.

Michelle Wie

Defending champion Michelle Wie had a great start with a clean 5-under 67. Don’t know why, other than these ladies are great, but there seemed to be quite a few clean rounds today. Michelle actually had the putter working today, which lately…well, hasn’t been working. But if there is a nit to pick, I don’t know if she can continue to count on knocking down long putts like the one on #9 she dropped for birdie. It was a terrific putt, but not the kind of shot you can depend on every round. Still, all in all Michelle is in great position going into Friday.

Love that they showed Grace on the telecast today, finishing up with her birdie on 18. She “only” shot even par, but it was an up and down day. 4 birdies wiped out by 4 bogeys, particularly two killer bogeys on 16 and 17. Hopefully, the birdie to close on 18 will give Grace momentum for Friday to play well. Although she is in 63rd place after one round, her even par score is only 3 shots off being in the top 20. There are a lot of players bunched up with the same scores.
