Coquitlam, BC (Sports Network) - Yani Tseng is back in a familiar position -
at the top of the leaderboard.
Mired in a slump for the last few months, the world No. 1 shot a 6-under 66 on
Thursday and is the first-round leader of the Canadian Women's Open at The
Vancouver Golf Club.
Tseng won three of the first five events on the 2012 LPGA Tour schedule, but
after a victory at the KIA Classic, she posted just three top 10s, and they
came in the three events following that win.
Tseng missed three cuts in her last five starts prior to Thursday. She tied
for 59th at the LPGA Championship and did marginally better at the U.S.
Women's Open, where she shared 50th.
Last week at the Safeway Classic, Tseng came in 11th.
The reigning U.S. Women's Open champion Na Yeon Choi is alone in second at 5-
Amateur Lydia Ko and Inbee Park, who won the Evian Masters, are tied for third
at 4-under 68.
