Hull one off the lead at Women's PGA Championship

American Lizette Salas leads by one at Atlanta Athletic Club

England's Charley Hull trails American Lizette Salas by a single shot after the opening round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship in Atlanta.
Is that a spectator I can see?
Hull, who started at the 10th tee, was one-under to the turn before coming alive on her back nine with four birdies and a lone bogey to card a four-under-par 68.
"I can't actually remember much of my round today. I just felt quite focused," said Hull.
"I wasn't even sure of my score until I looked at a leaderboard. The key for me was probably my par save on the last."
Lizette Salas enjoying her round
Salas, who revealed she has been having a long-running mental struggle, produced a flawless round of 67, including five birdies.
"I feel great. I feel more like myself. Like I said earlier, I'm not really intimidated by anything anymore. I'm enjoying the process," said Salas.
The American runner-up at the 2019 Women's British Open is looking for her first major title and first win on the LPGA Tour for seven years. Salas, whose best finish in this event was fifth place at Hazeltine National in 2019 also has an eye on the Solheim Cup.
"The Solheim Cup is always a goal, the big time goal. But in order to achieve that, you have to play well in majors," said the 31-year-old from California.
Yes, why do have these glasses on our heads?

Jessica Korda and former U.S. Women's Open champion Jeong-Eun Lee are in a group of seven players at three-under.
Nelly Korda, who won her second LPGA Tour title of 2021 last week, sits a further shot back at two-under in a group that also includes ANA Inspiration winner Patty Tavatanakit. Tavatanakit opened with three birdies in her first five holes before dropping and closed with a pair of birdies after struggling mid-round.
Ah, where is that one going?
Ireland's Leona Maguire, who was runner up at the Meijer Classic last week, carded a level-par 72. England's Mel Reid, who shared the round one lead at the Women's U.S. Open recently, was round in a two-over 74.
Mel booming one!
Georgia Hall is a further shot back following her 75 with Jodi Ewart Shadoff on four-over. Country women Dame Laura Davies (77), Bronte Law (78) and Northern Ireland's Stephanie Meadow (78) are all in danger of missing the cut.
