I.K. Kim's from Mercury...

...and the rest of the LPGA Thailand field is off chilling on Pluto. At least it certainly seemed that way by the time I packed it in for the night.

I.K. Kim photo from LPGA.comInky, who many of you will remember won Lorena's tournament late last year and donated her entire check to charity, ripped up the Siam Country Club with a round of -9. She shot 32-31 with no bogeys.

The next closest player to post when I last checked was Morgan Pressel at -2, T2 with several others still on the course. Among the "usual suspects" who had teed off, Yani Tseng was at -2 after 3 holes; the rest were struggling a bit early on. Rookie Jessica Korda (daughter of tennis player Petr Korda) was also -2 after 5 holes. The course appears to be playing pretty difficult, based on the scores.

I was really proud of Kristy McPherson. Coming off elbow surgery, she was +4 after 6 holes and brought it back to finish at -1.

Since there is no TV coverage of the first round -- delayed or otherwise -- you'll have to check the live leaderboard to get the scores. The LPGA changed the live leaderboard page at their site, but I now have the correct link so when you click on the LPGA leaderboard link in the sidebar, you'll actually go to this year's leaderboard! Be sure to check it out and see if the quicksilver play of In-Kyung Kim held up for the whole round.


  1. I absolutely love that picture of IK Kim ! It's even better in full frame. One of those pictures that just happens - not posed in a studio.

    Go low or go home this week for the ladies.

  2. Looks and prowess -- a very hard combo to beat!
