Korda leads Boca Rio by 2 after 66
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Jessica Korda shot a 6-under 66 in high wind Thursday to take the first-round lead in the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio, the tour's first full-field event of the season and first official event in Boca Raton in more than 30 years.
Korda birdied her final two holes, finishing with a 25-foot putt on the par-4 ninth at Boca Rio Golf Club. The 26-year-old Florida player had eight birdies - converting on all four par-5 holes - and two bogeys.
From Bradenton, the five-time LPGA Tour winner is staying at home this week.
