AXA Ladies Friday: 20-Year-Old Ayaka Watanabe Leads with 66

20-year-old Ayaka Watanabe fired a 7-birdie 66 to lead the AXA Ladies by 1 shot over Saiki Fujita, 2 shots over last week's winner Rikako Morita, Bo-Mee Lee, and Akane Iijima, and 3 shots over Erina Hara, Mihoko Iseri, and 21-year-old Miho Mori.  Their rounds are even more impressive when you consider that some of the top players on tour struggled mightily in the 1st round, including Shiho Oyama with a 79, Yumiko Yoshida with a 76, Ji-Yai Shin and Teresu Lu with 75s, and Sun-Ju Ahn and Ji-Hee Lee with 74s.

With Saturday's action already well under way, I won't go any further than that--for now!
