Posted: June 08, 2012

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Beatriz Recari, Ryann O'Toole, and Giulia Sergas shot 3-under 69 to share the first-round lead in the LPGA Championship, while defending champion Yani Tseng matched her high score of the year with a 76.

The top-ranked Tseng, a 10-stroke winner last year in the major championship, had six bogeys and only two birdies on the narrow Locust Hill Country Club course.

"I just couldn't hit a shot, couldn't hit on the green, couldn't hit on the fairway," Tseng said. "It was really tough for me out there."

Jeong Jang reached 5 under but bogeyed four of her final five holes to finish in a tie at 70 with 2010 champion Cristie Kerr, Paula Creamer, Se Ri Pak, Na Yeon Choi, Ai Miyazato, and Mika Miyazato.
