The 2015 Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic got underway Thursday at Lake Merced Golf Club, and defending champion Lydia Ko picked up where she left off.
Ko, who turned 18 on Friday, grabbed the first round lead with a 5-under 67. Among those in immediate pursuit was 54-year-old San Jose State alum and Santa Cruz native Juli Inkster, who turned the opening round into ‘Throwback Thursday’ by shooting a 4-under 68.
The championship, which is in its second year at Lake Merced GC, runs through Sunday.
