The ADT Championship after one day

Christina Kim who I reported on, and Mi Hyun Kim are tied for the lead at 67. Paula Creamer and Juli Inkster are one shot back at 68, and Cristie Kerr and Catorina Matthew another shot back at 69.

Having the first round lead doesn’t matter as much under the ADT’s unique format, because scores will be reset at the end of today’s play. It does however take some pressure off the golfers who are at or near the top. They know their first round scores give them a considerable edge when it comes to making the cut.

Some assorted notes

*- Paula Creamer said she had the worst warmup in her life on the practice tee yesterday morning. If I was superstitious, I’d be hoping for a repetition all weekend.

*- Juli Inkster at age 47 is the oldest player in the field. When asked if she practices thinking this shot is for a million dollars, Juli replied.

“No, but my husband does. He practices for me (laughter).” I wonder if Juli’s daughters are practicing too.

*- Mi Hyun Kim has gone back to her old irons. That and her swing have her feeling confident at present.

*- Christina’s close call on the 6th hole(flirting with the water on the right) was a fade that got away from her.

I’ll be in attendance again today but not till the afternoon.
