England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff and South Korea’s So Yeon Ryu fired 65s on Friday to take a share of the lead at 6-under at the ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer.

Both eagled the par-5 3rd hole and while Ewart Shadoff remained bogey-free, Ryu, who started on the back nine, bogeyed the par-4 14th.

“I made a birdie-birdie start, after that it was a bit slow,” said Ryu. “I did make an eagle on No. 3. To be honest, the eagle putt I think was a little bit too much speed, but I was able to hit the center of the cup. That one really picked me up.”

Ewart Shadoff’s 65 was her first under par opening round since the Marathon LPGA Classic presented by Dana in July

“I hit a really good hybrid from about 200 yards and was about 10 feet away,” she said of her eagle. “Yeah, it was nice to get one to drop early. I think that really started [getting] the momentum going for me.

“Holed a lot of putts today. It was very steady. Got up and down from the back of the green [on No. 9 for birdie]. I had a good one on No. 5, too. Tough pin on that ridge. Then a good closing birdie on the last hole.”

“I played this tournament in 2018 when I was a rookie and I did not play good, so I want to play better than 2018,” said Ko. “This course is not too long, so I have to get a lot of birdies. Even par-5s, you can get hybrid or iron to the green from second shot.

“I had great round today and lot of birdies. But I had two bogeys, so had to stay patient, good attitude.”

2019 champion Lexi Thompson of the USA shot a 68 and lies in T21 while defending champion Mel Reid of England shot a 71 for a share of 70th place.
