Lotta Wahlin Leads 2011 Omega Dubai Ladies Masters After First Round; Lexi Thompson Four Shots Back

Lotta Wahlin

2-time Ladies European Tour title winner (and cancer survivor) Lotta Wahlin fired 7 birdies against a lone bogey to take a 1 shot lead over Becky Brewerton after the 1st round of the 2011 Omega Dubai Ladies Masters. Lotta sits by herself at the top, but I really felt for Tandi Cuningham. Tandi was at 6-under going into the final hole and had a chance to join Lotta atop the leaderboard. Unfortunately she made a mess of the par 5 18th with a snowman 8 to drop 3 shots behind the leader.

Lexi Thompson

American teen phenom Lexi Thompson started her quest to add a 2011 LET win to her historic LPGA win with an opening round 2-under 70. She was 1-over until closing with 3 consecutive birdies on 16, 17 and 18.

  1. A friend in Hawaii said he saw Dubai coverage. Can we see this here in NY..?? Some new names near the top for me to find out about. Glad to see Lexi in the hunt. Very surprised to see Sandra Gal struggling, not to mention other top players also.

    Nice to see Christina Kim in the photos. I used to tweet with her quite regularly. Not so much this year. Maybe that is my holiday gift to her- leaving her be! Hah! :))

    • It’s being shown on The Golf Channel on delay. It is on 3PM thru 6PM in the afternoon/evening in NYC (EST)

  2. Thanks Bobby. I watched a good part of the coverage yesterday. Plan on doing that today also. Comes on The Golf Channel at 3PM NY time.
