Lewis, Miyazato tied at top; Wie opens with a 78


Stacy Lewis and Mika Miyazato are tied for the lead after the opening round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic in Galloway Township, N.J.

Lewis and Miyazato each shot a 6-under 65 on Friday at the Bay Course at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club.

Paula Creamer and Mariajo Uribe are tied for third at 4 under. Maude-Aimee Leblanc is at 3 under, while seven players are another shot back, including Lexi Thompson and Christina Kim.

Yani Tseng shot an even-par 71, while defending champion Brittany Lincicome finished with a 72.

The morning half of the field had the better of the weather, as skies darkened and the winds picked up around mid-day, making things difficult.

Michelle Wie, who teed off at 11:50 a.m. local time, had two double-bogeys and five bogeys on her way to a 7-over 78 that left her tied for 126th place.
