Il-Hee Lee Leads 2013 Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia After Round One

Il-Hee Lee (click to enlarge)

South Korean Il-Hee Lee started her first round at the 2013 Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia with a birdie on the par 4 1st, heralding a great day to come. That day would feature a clean 7-birdie, no bogey round that left Il-Hee alone atop the leaderboard at 7-under at day’s end. Earlier this year the 24-year old Lee won her first LPGA event at the 2013 Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic. Unfortunately, that event was reduced to three 12-hole rounds due to course flooding. American Brittany Lang had the hottest start of all, birdying 7 of her first 11 holes, starting on the back 9. For most of the round’s duration it looked as if the worst Brittany would finish would be a tie for the lead with Il-Hee. However, a final hole bogey (hole #9, since she finished on the front 9) served to slide Lang a shot back into solo 2nd.

BIRDIES

Paula Creamer is so overdue for a win. Once again, she had a great round at 5-under to put herself among the contenders.

Ai Miyazato had the best 2-under round of recent memory. She didn’t play well at last week’s JLPGA Japan Women’s Open and began Sime Darby at 2-over through 14. She rescued her round with 4 straight birdies on 15, 16, 17 and 18 to turn 2-over into 2-under in the blink of an eye.

Suzann Pettersen returned from her 3 week hiatus to fire a solid 4-under. Whenever Suzann is lurking, the other leaders need to beware.
