Park sparkles with 64

Former world No. 1 Park Inbee hit a flawless 8-under-par 64 to take a one-stroke lead after the opening round of the HSBC Women’s World Championship yesterday as the LPGA returned to Asia for the first time in 18 months. The seven-time major winner, bidding for a third win in the tournament after 2015 and 2017 triumphs, snared eight birdies in sweltering conditions at Singapore’s Sentosa course to top the leaderboard ahead of fellow South Korean Park Hee-young (65). Park Hee-young’s mix of an eagle, six birdies and a single bogey gave her a two-shot advantage over five players who carded 67s for a share of third. Former world No. 1 Park Sung-hyun, who won the tournament the last time it was held in 2019, continued her poor run of form with the worst round of the day, a 6-over-par 78. She is guaranteed to play at the weekend, however, as the 69-player event has no cut.
