WILLIAMSBURG, Va. Vince Wilfork Jersey . —Jiyai Shin was in
the middle of a solid round when a rain delay halted play at the LPGA Tours
Kingsmill Championship for 2 hours. Facing a tough chip shot when she returned
to the course, Shin spent the break worrying about how to handle it. When she
got the chance, she showed that she shouldnt have worried at all. “I left with a
tough chip shot, like 20 yards to the hole,” Shin said after shooting a
tournament-record 9-under 62 in Thursdays first round. “Im really worried. ...
How can I practice? In my mind, it was really hard. When I went back to there, I
chipped it in.” The LPGA Tour initially said it would not count the round as a
tournament record because the players were allowed to lift, clean and place
their ball because of already soggy conditions. But when tournament director
Wayne Nooe said he would count it, the LPGA agreed. With 33 players still on the
course when play was halted by darkness, the 24-year-old Shin, from South Korea,
was two shots ahead of the field. Her round matched the lowest on tour this
season, and eclipsed the previous mark of 63, shared by seven players. Shin had
nine birdies in her bogey-free, career-best round. Ranked as the No. 1 player in
the world for 16 weeks in 2010, Shin is chasing her first LPGA Tour victory in
more than two years. She won the Womens British Open in 2008 before it was a
major, and is 13th on the money list with a third and two ties for third her
best finishes. She missed two months for wrist surgery and recuperation.
“Finally I can say golf course is not too hard,” said Shin, who is breaking in a
new caddie this week. “My plan was no bogey. The rain helped make the greens
softer, so I hit more aggressive on the back nine, too.” Dewi Claire Schreefel
of The Netherlands could get to 62, too, or lower. She used an eagle on the
par-5 7th hole (her 16th) to reach 7 under before play was suspended for the day
at 7:26 p.m. Paula Creamer, Swedens Maria Hjorth and Spaniards Azahara Munoz and
Beatriz Recari are at 6-under 65. Four others, including local favourite
Christina Kim, finished at 66. The tournament marks the return of the LPGA Tour
to Kingsmills River Course after a two-year absence. Including those yet to
complete the first round, 75 were under par Thursday. Not among them was Cristie
Kerr, the only two-time winner on the Pete Dye layout. Kerr hasnt won since 2010
and arrived hoping being back alongside the James River would help her generate
some momentum. Instead, she finished with a 1-over 72. Michelle Wie, with just
one top 10 finish this year, shot a 4-over 75. Play was halted by a thunderstorm
at 12:24 p.m. and resumed at 2:20. Creamer, 26, hasnt won since the 2010 U.S.
Womens Open. She followed a first-hole bogey with a birdie at No. 2 and a
chip-in eagle at the par-5 3rd. She closed the front nine with four straight
birdies and logged nine consecutive pars coming home. “I cant control what
happens the next three days … but for me, this is a big confidence booster,”
Creamer said. “I think about it every day (victory drought). With surgery and
things like that, your bodys not going to bounce back as fast as you would like
it. “I feel good. I feel Im very happy. If I hit a bad shot, I hit a bad shot. I
just move on and go for the next one.” Play was to resume at 7:10 a.m. Friday.

earlier in the game with runners in scoring position, but Reynolds was able to
reach out and bloop a single just in front of centre fielder Denard Span to put
the Orioles ahead.CASARES, Spain – Brandt Snedeker worked wonders with a loaned
set of clubs at the World Match Play Championship on Thursday, crushing
Thomas Bjorn of Denmark 5 and 4 to begin his quest for a first victory outside
the United States. The lone American in the 24-man field teed off with only 10
clubs in his replacement bag—including a putter bought from the pro shop and
a driver borrowed from Australian rival John Senden—while his normal set was
being couriered from the airport following a delay in the arrival of his luggage
in Spain. By the time his clubs arrived at the Finca Cortesin course—allowing
him to fill his bag to the maximum 14—Snedeker was 3 up after three holes.
Such was his form with his newly purchased putter, he continued with it rather
than use his own and holed from off the green on No. 14 to clinch victory. “I
didnt like my chances on the first tee,” Snedeker said. “I just thought, Go out
there and see if I could try to beat him, try to do what I could with what I was
playing with.” There were opening-day wins for Ian Poulter of England, who
started his title defence by beating Senden 3 and 2, and Justin Rose, who
battered Robert Rock 7 and 6 in an all-English contest. Martin Kaymer, at No 9
the highest-ranked player in the field, lost 3 and 2 to Rafael Cabrero-Bello.
Robert Karlsson missed a 6-foot putt on the last to lose 1 up to
Graeme McDowell, the 2010 U.S. Open champion and Europes Ryder Cup star from the
same year. But there was no doubting the standout story, which continued
Snedekers remarkable few days since missing the cut at The Players Championship
last week. His flight from Miami to Madrid on Monday ahead of a first visit to
Spain was interrupted when a fellow passenger suffered a heart attack, forcing
his plane to make an emergency landing in the Azores. He played Wednesdays
pro-am deprived of sleep and with some borrowed clubs and only discovered on
Thursday morrning that his own set wouldnt be arriving until after he had teed
off against Bjorn. Wes Welker Womens Jersey. Rose offered
Snedeker his putter but the American went with the one he bought, plus Sendens
driver and a set of irons. Snedeker had to be granted permission from tour
officials to add four of his own clubs—a 3-wood, hybrid, lob wedge and
putter. “Kind of a weird day to say the least,” Snedeker said. “They havent
charged me for the putter yet. Im sure it will be a hundred bucks but it will be
well worth it.” Snedeker, who made six birdies in total and can guarantee a
place in the last 16 with a win over Branden Grace on Friday, believes winning
the tournament would help his attempts to earn a spot in United States Ryder Cup
team for the September series against Europe in Medinah. “It would be pretty
tough for (captain) Davis (Love III) to find an excuse to leave me off the
team,” he said. Poulter is many peoples favourite this week owing to his strong
match-play record, and he held on against Senden after birdies on Nos. 3 and 9.
He added another with a 30-foot putt on No. 15. “Its refreshing to get back to
match-play golf,” said Poulter, who has won eight of a possible 11 points in
Ryder Cup matches and is the only player to have captured match-play titles on
both sides of the Atlantic. If Senden loses to Tom Lewis in Fridays early
matches, Poulter will qualify for the last 16 before playing his second and last
match in the round-robin stage. Rose birdied the first five holes on his way to
overwhelming Rock, while Sergio Garcia won three of his final five holes to beat
fellow Spaniard Alvaro Quiros 2 and 1 in increasingly overcast conditions. Also,
1999 British Open champion Paul Lawrie rallied to defeat Peter Hanson of Sweden
2 and 1, and former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel birdied No. 18 to halve
his match-up against Nicolas Colsaerts in one of only two matches to make it to
the last hole. ’ ’ ’
