Catriona Matthew in the mix at LPGA Classic
American Morgan Pressel fired a five-under-par 66 to take a one-shot lead after the opening round of the Shoprite LPGA Classic.
Pressel, second at last month's LPGA Swinging Skirts Classic and seeking her third LPGA title, closed with an eagle at the par-five ninth to claim the lead at Galloway in New Jersey.
The 27-year-old recovered from a bogey at the 14th with birdies at 16 and the par-five 18th.
She then birdied the par-five third and the fifth before stumbling again at the sixth, but bounced back with a birdie at the eighth and then her eagle.
"I really didn't put myself in a whole lot of trouble," Pressel said. "I wouldn't say that I certainly had the best game out there. I felt like I made a few mistakes. But I guess I just made a few mistakes, and I didn't play all that well, but then I came down birdie at eight and eagling the last hole. That definitely helps."
One stroke off the pace ahead of Saturday's second round of the 54-hole event are Canada's Alena Sharp, Taiwan's Min Lee, Sweden's Anna Nordqvist and American Ryann O'Toole.
A pack of 10 players share sixth place on 67, including South Koreans Jenny Shin and Park Hee-Young, Scotland's Catriona Matthew, Swede Pernilla Lindberg, Dutchwoman Christel Boeljon, Thailand's Thidapa Suwannapura, Canada's Brooke Henderson and Americans Gerina Piller and Sydnee Michaels.
