PITTSFORD, N.Y., June 7 (UPI) -- Chella Choi birdied six of her first 10 holes Friday and fired a 5-under 67 that put her a shot in front after one round of the rain-delayed LPGA Championship.
The second major event on the LPGA Tour this season was postponed for 24 hours when heavy rains wiped out the entire day of play Thursday.
Tournament officials hope to complete the second round on Saturday and then send the players out for a 36-hole marathon on Sunday.
Choi finished second or third on four occasions last year, but is still seeking her first tour victory.
Inbee Park, the No. 1 ranked player in the world, was at 72 while second-ranked Stacy Lewis shot a 74.
