Kingsmill Championship Thursday: Ji-Yai Shin Breaks Tournament Record with Bogey-Free 62 did a great job of putting Ji-Yai Shin's tournament-record, bogey-free 62 in the 1st round of the Kingsmill Championship in perspective as well as introducing fans to the 4 golfers 3 shots behind her (Paula Creamer, Azahara Munoz, Beatriz Recari, and Maria Hjorth).  It's not just because I don't have much time to write this that I strongly urge you to check out their 1st-round notes and interviews!

Of course, I was also pleased to see Mika Miyazato, Jennifer Rosales, and Jennifer Song open with 66s, Ai Miyazato, Hee Kyung Seo, Danielle Kang, and Lexi Thompson with 67s, Jane Park and Mitsuki Katahira with 68s, and Stacy Lewis, Angela Stanford, Nicole Castrale, and Laura Diaz with 69s, among the many other players who broke 70 yesterday.

Looks like we've got a real shootout shaping up in Williamsburg!  Nice to see a lot of the rookies Tony Jesselli just rated and LPGA members without a win on tour that I just ranked in the hunt early on!
