U.S. Women's Open Thursday Morning: Ai Miyazato Roars Back to Tie for Lead in Clubhouse

Ai Miyazato stayed calm after bogeying 2 of her 1st 6 holes to kick off her U.S. Women's Open week, then proceeded to play bogey-free golf the rest of the way and make 4 birdies on the front, including 2 in a row to close out her round on 8 and 9.  Her opening 70 puts her in a tie for 2nd right now with fellow leader in the clubhouse Beatriz Recari, 1 shot behind amateur Kyung Kim, who's -3 over her 1st 5 holes.  Other good morning rounds include a 71 from Meena Lee, 72s from Se Ri Pak, Anna Nordqvist, Wendy Ward, Jimin Kang, and Katie Burnette, and 73s from Paula Creamer, Azahara Munoz, Amy Yang, Jeong Jang, Cindy LaCrosse, Gerina Piller, and Numa Gulyanamitta.

[Update 1 (3:40 pm): Lexi Thompson joined Miyazato and Recari at -2! Katie Futcher joined the big group at +1.]
