The attendees included Ryu So-yeon and Park Sung-hyun, now ranked No. 1 and 2 in the world, Michelle Wie and Lydia Ko, who are of Korean descent, as well as Alison Lee, Jessica Korda and Nelly Korda. My only hope at this point is that I maintain this.

Meanwhile, Danny Lee had a roller-coaster round at the CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur, mixing eight birdies with two bogeys, two doubles and a triple for a one-over 73. The Australian has enjoyed a good season, notching up eight top ten finishes but a win still eludes her.

"I've had a pretty solid year". "That will be my goal".

Sung Hyun Park was tied for the first-round lead with Min-Sun Kim and Minjee Lee.


Park was tied for the first-round lead with Min-Sun Kim and Minjee Lee.

"I can't speak for the other players from overseas, but I've never felt that it's uncomfortable to have a larger crowd".

The trio all carded superb six under 66s around the SKY72 Golf and Resort course, enough for a one stroke lead over a slew of players on five under that include Americans Cristie Kerr and Lizette Salas. "I was quite surprised when I reached the first hole and saw the size of the crowd", she said. Thompson opened with a four-birdie 69 for a share of 13th, while Ryu, the front-runner for this season's Player of the Year award, scored a three-birdie 72 to lie 40th.

"I've played with both players in the same group before, so I don't think there was a lot of burden or pressure", Park said of the marquee grouping. "The larger the cheering is the more fun for me, so I had a really good time out there today".
