Brits in the mix at KPMG Women’s PGA Championship

Hall and Hull three off the lead in Philadelphia

England's Georgia Hall and Charley Hull are well placed at level par after the first round of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. For Hall though there was frustration as she got off to a great start reaching the turn in three-under-par but faltered on the way home giving up all three shots including bogies at the 17th and 18th holes.

American Brittany Lincicombe and Kelly Tan of Malaysia share the lead on three-under-par. A group of six players sit just one shot back and includes Danielle Kang of America, New Zealand’s Lydia Ko and Spain’s Carlota Ciganda.
“I was really happy with the way I started the round,” Hall, the 2018 Women’s Open champion and winner two weeks ago on the LPGA tour, said.
“It's pretty windy today, maybe a two, three-club wind, so it's playing hard. I played really solid. Didn't make hardly any mistakes. Until the second nine.”

Sitting alongside the English duo on level par is a large group which includes seven-time major winner Inbee Park and world number ten Lexi Thompson who must be due a good finish.
Poor Mel Reid who won last week at the ShopRite LPGA Classic got off to a nightmare start with a triple bogey at her very first hole. To her credit, she dug deep and was round in a four-over-par 74 and is in no way out of it given the challenges of the tough Aronimink course.
