Na Yeon Choi Leads 2011 CME Titleholders After Round 1

Na Yeon Choi

5-time LPGA winner Na Yeon Choi fired 7 birdies against 1 bogey to lead the 2011 CME Titleholders by 1 shot over Morgan Pressel and Karrie Webb after round 1. Unfortunately, the 2011 Sime Darby winner had that lone bogey on her final hole to mar an otherwise brilliant round. She hit a beautiful approach shot to set up an easy birdie on the par 5 15th and an excellent 10 foot birdie on 17. Her one yip was a complete misread on a birdie putt attempt that finished 6 feet left of the hole on 18. NYC went from potential birdie on 18 to bogey with a missed par putt.

Yani Tseng

Yani Tseng started her quest for her 8th LPGA win of the year, and 13th LPGA win overall, with a solid 2-under par 70. Although that “only” puts her in 13th overall, it’s only the 1st round. With her ability to go low she can vault to the top very quickly. She leads the tour coming into CME Titleholders with 40 rounds in the 60s so she’s always a threat to make a huge jump.

Lexi Thompson

Also have to give some credit to Lexi Thompson. She had a birdie on 2, but then triple bogeyed 3 to go to 2-over in a hurry. She stayed mentally tough and fought back with birdies on 8, 11 and 13 to get back in red numbers at 1-under. Na Yeon Choi. Yani Tseng. Lexi Thompson. All names you should see atop many LPGA leaderboards in 2012 and beyond.

Hee Kyung Seo

While it’s well known that Yani Tseng wrapped up Player of the Year for 2011 several tournaments ago, Hee Kyung also has wrapped up a year-end award. Hee Kyung is the 2011 Rookie of the Year. The 2009 KLPGA Player of the Year earned her LPGA Tour Card by winning the 2010 Kia Classic as a non-member. Her ROY win solidifies her place on tour. Congratulations, Hee Kyung!
