Four Way Logjam Atop Leaderboard After First Round Of 2011 Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia

Na Yeon Choi

With the Golf Channel showing the broadcast of Sime Darby 2011 almost a full day behind, I watched the first round broadcast while the second round was underway! But that’s ok, I’m just happy it’s being shown at all. I have been an LPGA fan long enough to remember tournaments on the Asian swing with no TV coverage. So with Na Yeon Choi, Maria Hjorth, Brittany Lang and Dewi Claire Schreefel tied for the lead at -5 (at least they were 12 hours ago!), I will briefly comment on the three highest Seoul Sisters after the first round. For co-leader Na Yeon Choi, I was a bit bummed that she came up short in her bid to 3-peat at last week’s event in Korea (Hana Bank), although I am a Yani Tseng fan. But maybe NYC, who seems to be catching fire of late, will get back in the winning column before the year ends. It’s been such an off year that you’d be forgiven if you can barely remember that Na Yeon won both the money title and Vare Trophy last year.

Michelle Wie

2 other Seoul Sister winners from last year who could use a trophy ceremony this year are In-Kyung Kim and Korean-American Michelle Wie. Both players had 5 birdies and 2 bogeys to tie for 7th at 3-under. Inky still has an opportunity coming up to defend her title at the Lorean Ochoa Invitational. Michelle fell just short in defending her 2010 title at this year’s Canadian Women’s Open. On to round 2!
