WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Ai Miyazato held a one-shot lead after Thursday's opening round of the ADT Championship, the season-ending event on the LPGA Tour.
Miyazato shot 4-under-par 68 at Trump International, one shot better than Il Mi Chung and two-time ADT winner Karrie Webb.
Annika Sorenstam was 4 over after 10 holes before rallying to finish 2 over, six shots back. Lorena Ochoa was 3 over, with four bogeys and only one birdie.
- The LPGA Tour said it will begin testing players for performance-enhancers in 2008, a move that makes it the first major golf tour to announce a drug-testing program. Specifics of the testing plan will be worked up over the next six to nine months.
DUNLOP PHOENIX: In Miyazaki, Japan, Tiger Woods shot 3-under-par 67 to sit two strokes behind leader Shingo Katayama after the first round.
Woods endured an embarrassing incident at the dogleg 332-yard, par-4 13th when he drove to the green with the previous threesome still putting. His ball landed in the front left fringe and rolled within several feet of the surprised players before stopping on the back fringe.
The green is not visible from the tee, blocked by a thick forest of stunted pines, and Woods said he didn't see the caddie's yellow flag warning that the green was still occupied.
HONG KONG OPEN: In Hong Kong, defending champion Colin Montgomerie and Retief Goosen struggled in the opening round, as Jose Manuel Lara and Jyoti Randhawa shot 6-under-par 64s to share a one-stroke lead.
Montgomerie shot 69, while Goosen shot 70.
