Neither snow nor rain nor sleet nor heat nor gloom of night stays the ladies of the LPGA from the swift completion of their apointed rounds. On Facebook, Beatriz Recari described her first round at the 2013 Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship as 5 hours and 40 minutes in rain. And so it was, as defending champion Suzann Pettersen sandwiched 6 birdies in-between 2 bogeys for a 4-under 68 to open her title defense with a sprint to the top of the leaderboard by 3 shots. The talk coming into day one was about wind, and that was an issue, but it was also fog and mist conspiring to keep scoring in check. Suzann commented afterwards that once the rain stopped, the wind picked up. There were only five players under par, with four of them barely being under par at -1.

“I feel pretty good with my game. I feel my ball striking is pretty much where I want it to be.” – Suzann Pettersen

Not so happy with her game was Yani Tseng. The hometown hero did not get off to the start she wanted with a 4-over 76. However, although she’s currently languishing in 47th place, keep in mind that scoring overall was at a minimum on day one. The field needs to hope Pettersen doesn’t run away from them and win going away. But they also need to keep in mind it’s only round one. A lot of things can happen over the next three days. The tournament by no means is out of reach regardless of what message Suzann sent with her sterling opening.

“I am a bit disappointed with my performance today. I need to be more committed to my shots.” – Yani Tseng
