Taiwanese players did not do well on the opening day of the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship Thursday, with professional Tsai Pei-ying (???) and amateur Chang Ya-chun (???) firing a one-under 71 to tie with eight others to rank 14th, while once-world No. 1 Yani Tseng (???) was placed 73rd with 79.
Japan's Sakura Yokomine led the pack of 81 with a five-under 67 after carding five birdies, one eagle and two bogies. She was followed by Paula Creamer of the United States, Amy Yang of South Korea and Brooke Henderson of Canada, who tied at 2nd place with a score of 68.
None of the Taiwanese players, including two amateurs, were able to card 69 to tie at fifth. Five foreign golfers did that: Park Hee-young and Jang Ha-na of South Korea, Beatriz Recari of Spain, Ai Miyazato of Japan and South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace.
Fourteen of the world's top-20 woman players are participating in the four-day 72-hole championship, a tourney carrying a total cash prize of US$2 million being held at Miramar Golf Country Club in New Taipei, northern Taiwan.
