Lydia Ko Opens Well in Australia & Philly Girls Golf Registration Opens March 1:CHECK IT OUT!!!

South Korea’s Ilhee Lee fired a 5-under-par 68 on Thursday to take a one shot lead at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open by playing a bogey-free round in which she hit 17 of 18 greens. 
World No. 1 Lydia Ko used a back-nine eagle on the 14th to climb into a tie for third after round one with a 3-under 70. Ko hit 16 of 18 greens on Thursday but the slick Royal Melbourne greens proved a tough test for her trusty flat stick.
“It’s definitely good to start off well here. It’s definitely a tough course. I really tried to stay patient. I didn’t hole that many putts, but I didn’t make that many mistakes with it either,” Ko said. “I think that’s very important, you know. With just the blink of an eye, you’re like six feet by and it’s very tough. I tried to grab the birdie opportunities, especially on the holes where I could get on for two on the par-fives, tried to come off with at least a birdie.”
