Yani Tseng tied at 19th in Kingsmill Championship

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taiwanese golf ace Yani Tseng carded 2-under 69 Thursday (U.S. time) to tie for 19th after the first round of the LPGA Tour's Kingsmill Championship in Williamsburg, Virginia.

The fourth-ranked golfer started well with four birdies in the front nine, but bogeyed the 12th and 14th.

Although she managed an eagle at the 15th, this was offset by a double-bogey at the 18th.

Tseng, who finished 28th in the inaugural North Texas LPGA Shootout last week, is seeking to end her yearlong title drought.

The 24-year-old said on her Facebook page Thursday that her previous longtime caddy, Jason Hamilton, has been working with her again.

Tseng, who had Hamilton replaced last summer amid a decline in form, wrote that she was excited to have her “super caddy” back.

The former top-ranked golfer said that although she argued with Hamilton from time to time in the past, she believed those arguments were conducive to her growth through learning.

In the US$1.3 million Kingsmill tournament, Thai teenager Ariya Jutanugarn shot a 7-under 64 to take a two-stroke lead after the first round.
