KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) So Yeon Ryu shot a 4-under 68 on Wednesday to take the lead halfway through a windy first round of the LPGA LOTTE Championship.
Japan's Ayako Uehara was one stroke back.
Ryu, the 2012 LPGA Rookie of the Year, had five birdies and one bogey. She birdied three of the first five holes, teeing off from the front nine into the wind.
