Jodi Ewart Shadoff takes 2-stroke lead in Taiwan

October 25, 2018

Jodi Ewart Shadoff took a two-stoke lead after day 1 of the LPGA Taiwan Championship. Shadoff, who is still looking for her first LPGA win, fired a bogey-free 7-under 65.

"I think changing my irons a month ago has definitely helped with my confidence. I've just been lacking feel in my long game the whole year, really, and it's just affected my confidence somewhat. So it's nice just to, like, be able to trust what I'm doing and my swing."

Nelly Korda and Haeji Kang lie two shots behind at 5-under. Korda has a good record in Asia with four top-10 finishes. Her best result came in Singapore in March when she tied for second at the HSBC Women's World Championship.

"I just love Asia in general," Korda said. "I love the Asian Swing. It just seems, like, so easy for the players. Everyone is around each other. It's kind of like we're a big family. I feel comfortable."

Ally McDonald recovered from a double bogey with six birdies and is tied in fourth place with Moriya Jutanugarn, Wei-Ling Hsu, Jeon Eun Lee and So Yeon Ryu.
