CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) Mirim Lee birdied all four par-5 holes and finished with a bogey-free 7-under 65 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the Kia Classic.
Lee took the outright lead with an 8-foot putt on the par-5 fifth - her 14th hole in her afternoon round at Aviara - and hit a wedge to 3 feet to set up her final birdie on the par-5 eighth. The 24-year-old South Korean player won LPGA Tour events last year in Michigan and China.
"Today was putting," Lee said.
