AURORA, Ontario (AP) Annie Park shot a 7-under 65 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead in the opening round of the CP Women's Open.
Defending champion Brooke Henderson and fellow Canadian Anne-Catherine Tanguay were one shot back along with top-ranked Jin Young Ko, Pajaree Anannarukarn and Nicole Broch Larsen.
Park hit 15 greens in regulation and eagled the par-5 ninth. She could play her way onto the U.S. team for next week's Solheim Cup with a strong finish in Canada, but she wasn't looking that far ahead.
