ROGERS, Ark. (AP) - Morgan Pressel shot a 5-under 66 Friday to
take the early lead during the first round of the P&G NW Arkansas
Yani Tseng, Gloria Park and Na Yeon Choi each shot 67, and
Michelle Wie was one of several players another stroke back. Much
of the field was still on the 6,284-yard course at Pinnacle Country
Club when Pressel finished with birdies on Nos. 8 and 9. She had
started her round on No. 10.
Pressel is trying for her first win since 2008. She and playing
partner Juli Inkster had some unusual company during their round -
a 17-year-old boy from The First Tee program.
Players from the youth development organization are joining the
pros during the first two rounds in a best-ball competition that is
taking place alongside the LPGA event.
