Friberg 27th After First Round of LPGA State Farm Classic
June 10, 2010
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- Louise Friberg shot a 3-under par 69 and Paige Mackenzie a 2-over 74 in the first round of the LPGA State Farm Classic at Panther Creek Country Club in Springfield, Ill. on Thursday. Friberg is tied for 29th and Mackenzie is tied for 123rd.
Friberg is in great shape to make the cut for the weekend if she can continue to play solid. She was slow out of the gates and was +1 at the turn after two birdies were negated by three bogeys. On the back nine, Friberg caught fire and carded four birdies and went bogey-free.
Mackenzie had trouble getting on track throughout the day. She only carded two birdies -- both coming on par-3's -- and had four bogeys on the day. Mackenzie will most likely have to get into the negative numbers in order to make the cut.
Shanshan Feng is the day one leader after shooting an 8-under 64. A pair of golfers are one stroke back at 7-under.
Mackenzie will tee off at 7:49 a.m. CT (5:49 a.m. PT), while Friberg will tee off at 9:06 a.m. CT. Both will begin their rounds on the 10th hole.
