Jennifer Johnson Leads Navistar LPGA Classic After 1st Round, But Guess Who’s Lurking (Hint: She’s Ranked #1)

Jennifer Johnson

When it was announced that LPGA tookie Jennifer Johnson would donate half of her winnings from the 2011 Navistar Classic to the Wounded Warrior Project, I thought it was a great gesture but I wasn’t certain how well she would play. With 3 missed cuts in her last 4 events prior to Navistar, I had doubts. After one round, there need be no worries. Jennifer fired her best round of the year, a 7-under 65 to lead after round 1. It was a round that included the shot of the day, a 6-iron from 150 yards out for eagle on the par 4 14th. There are a couple of my favorites, including Tiffany Joh and Yani Tseng, who are lurking. Still, maybe just for this week, I’ll have to eschew my fandom and root for Jennifer and the cause of helping our wounded veterans.

Yani Tseng

And speaking of Yani Tseng, the world #1 is conspicuously near the top of the leaderboard yet again. I don’t know if she has quite reached the level of intimidation that Lorena Ochoa had when she was near the top of the leaderboard, but she’s getting close. However, her 4-under 68 could have been better save for 2 bogeys to finish her round and some shaky putting. Also at 4-under is Tiffany Joh. With all of the attention she has been getting for her music videos lately, I’m happy to see her remind everybody that she’s a darn tootin’ good player, too.

  1. YA, the Bobby™ LPGA coverage is back !!

    Great round for Alison alshe, Lexi Thompson, Becky Morgan, & Jennifer Johnson, great to see that, only a ok round for queen Yani, but she will be back, like she always dose.

    • the LPGA would just looooove for Alexis to win this…Jennifer Johnson too…but another young American teenage phenom is always good for drawing in mainstream media

  3. The one that is nearly always in the hunt is closer to the top… Go Hogs.. and Stacy Lewis..
    One of these days she is going to go on a tare and win several in a row..
