Ex-number ones Park, Tseng outshine jetlagged Ko

New Zealand's 17-year-old Lydia Ko became golf's youngest male or female world number one last monthFormer world number ones Park Inbee and Tseng Ya-ni outshone top-ranked Lydia Ko, 17, as they seized the joint lead on day one of the HSBC Womens Champions on Thursday. Teenage sensation Ko blamed jetlag and fatigue as she carded four-under-par 68 to lie two shots off Park and Tseng's 66 at a sun-baked Sentosa Golf Course. She ended the day tied at the top of the leaderboard with Taiwans Tseng, who reigned as world number one for almost two years between 2011 and 2013 but is now ranked 67th. Ko started strongly but she looked to be struggling in temperatures which reached 35 degrees C (95 F), and also blamed jetlag after flying in from New Zealand.

Tseng revival continues with solid Singapore opening

LPGA: Kraft Nabisco Championship-Practice RoundBy John O'Brien SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Yani Tseng had the golfing world at her feet during a glorious five-year spell from 2008 that saw the Taiwanese pick up five major victories and top the world rankings for 109 consecutive weeks. Following her 15th and final LPGA Tour victory in March 2012, Tseng began to second-guess herself on the course, her form disappeared along with the ever-present smile and the barren run saw her slip to 90th in the world just two weeks ago. On Thursday, Tseng was brilliant in the first round of the HSBC Women's Champions event in Singapore, her six-under 66 earning her a tie for first place alongside South Korea's Park and two strokes clear of Ko. "Oh, it's fun... it's so much fun," Tseng told reporters of her resurgence.

Former number ones overshadow Ko in Singapore

LPGA: Wegmans Championship-Third RoundBy John O'Brien SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Lydia Ko's meteoric rise to the top of women's golf has shown little sign of slowing down but the New Zealand teen was forced to take a back seat to a pair of former number ones at the HSBC Women's Champions on Thursday. The 17-year-old phenomenon arrived in Singapore fresh from her Australian and New Zealand Open victories and an opening round four-under 68 at the testing Serapong Course put her well in contention for a hat-trick just two shots off the lead. A little bit jet-lagged because of the long flight but I've been trying to pace myself, go nine holes and do the least amount of practice," Ko told reporters before turning her attention to the searing Singapore temperatures. "I think just this week, the heat is definitely going to get to me, so I'm just going to try and cool down." Ko's predecessor at the top of the rankings Park In-bee made the most of cooler early conditions to fire a bogey-free six-under 66 to claim a tie for first place along with Taiwan's Yani Tseng, who is showing glimpses of a return to form after a two-year slump.
