SINGAPORE– Elizabeth Szokol fired an 8-under-par 64 on Thursday for a 3- stroke lead after the preliminary of the Women’s World Championship at the Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore.
The 28-year-old American was 3 shots in advance of Yuka Saso and also 4 free from a pack of 6 others, consisting of Nelly Korda, at 4 under.
Szokol is returning from a back injury– a herniated disk– and also stated she made use of the soft problems on the wet training course.
“This is my first time playing here,” Szokol stated. “And people had said usually it’s a bit firmer. But the rain definitely softened it up. So I could be a little bit more aggressive with some pins today.”
Saso won the 2021 UNITED STATE Open as a teen however has actually not won any kind of titles given that.
“Well, winning here on the LPGA is not easy,” she stated. “So you just have to keep grinding and keep working and give yourself a chance.”
