Clark native Kim Kaufman shot a 1-under-par 70 on Thursday and is tied for 34th after the opening round of the LPGA Tour's Kingsmill Championship in Williamsburg, Va.

Lexi Thompson made a sky-high entrance to the Kingsmill Championship on Wednesday. "I hit some great shots and rolled a few good putts, so definitely helps out my confidence", she said. Thompson has three top 10s in seven events so far this year. I just didn't hit it too close.

Top-ranked Lydia Ko was two strokes back at 67 along with Sarah Jane Smith and Giulia Molinaro. Eight players, including 2015 Kingsmill champion Minjee Lee, are 3 under. Cristie Kerr, Kingsmill's only multiple victor, was 2 over.

Thompson got to 1 under on No. 1 and followed with consecutive birdies on Nos. Television: Friday, 9-11 p.m. (Golf Channel); Saturday-Sunday, 5-7 p.m. (Golf Channel). "The rough's kind of thick, and I kind of hooked it out of the rough and didn't get on the green". She shot a 12-under 61 in the Bahamas in January.

"I feel good about my game and I am looking forward to the week", said the soft-spoken youngster, who also played the Olympics previous year. "I'm just trying to focus on my game and get it more consistent". Not that she prefers to think of it that way. "You know, I kept in in play, which was nice". "I'm OK with that".

"I feel great. It's a solid first round", said Yin.

"It's not who I am".

Harry Kane has aimed a dig at West Ham by suggesting they do not play the same exciting brand of football that Tottenham do. It was just our performances on them days weren't great.


"A dream come true is all I can say!"

Lincicome's five-birdie, no-bogey 66 was her best round since mid-March.

Ko is enduring the longest winless streak of her career, having gone 18 tournaments since her last win in July previous year. "This week I need to work on creating enough birdie chances by hitting a lot of greens and the key would be to hit good approaches". Friday's 2nd round should produce some very worthwhile golf. But the only way I would jump out of a perfectly good plane is with a SEAL on my back. But she bogeyed the next hole.

The Kiwi holds a 4-under par in a tie for fifth after 14 holes at the LGPA event. "It's a solid first round".

But Kerr's ball just want's behaving.

The LPGA star made the jump onto the course with retired Navy SEALs and a member of the Red Bull Air Force.

Ko hasn't won a tournament since July, putting her 19-month reign as world No.1 under serious threat this week. There was nothing like it. Words can't describe the feeling.
