Lexi Thompson is playing in her third tournament since losing a playoff in the ANA Inspiration for being penalized four strokes for a rules violation spotted by a TV viewer

Thompson is playing in her third tournament since losing a playoff in the ANA Inspiration for being penalized four strokes for a rules violation spotted by a person watching the tournament on television.

Thompson started on the back nine and admitted to getting off to a slow start, sitting even at the turn, but with a birdie on No. 1 (her 10th hole), it all started to come together, with six birdies in seven holes.

LPGA TOURKINGSMILL CHAMPIONSHIPSite: Williamsburg, Va. Course: River Course at Kingsmill Resort.

Second-ranked Korean So Yeon Ryn shot 70 while tournament defending champions Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand managed 72.

In 10 starts in the 2017 season, Jutanugarn has posted eight top-nine finishes, including three runners-up (HSBC Women's Champions, Bank of Hope Founders Cup and the Citibanamex Lorena Ochoa Match Play).

She's two shots off the lead held by American Lexi Thompson.

"It always helps to see the other players in your group play well", Thompson said about Piller. She struck it very well and rolled a lot of great putts.

Trump also said at the time that "the process is going to move quickly" and that he would make a "fast decision" to replace Comey. Plus, as a very special bonus, he works for the same law firm as Trump's personal lawyer. "Or who's campaigned for president".

Ko, however, said the possibility of being dethroned was not on her mind as she prepared for Thursday's opening round in Williamsburg.

Su Oh made a similar start with birdies at the first, second and fourth holes before carding a three-under par 68 in a bogey-free round.

"I don't really look at the rankings myself", Ko said. "The greens are rolling phenomenal". I don't know if it gives me a better chance this week. "Just happy to be under par and looking forward to tomorrow".

Sarah Jane Smith is the best-placed of six Australians after the opening round of the LPGA Tour's Kingsmill Championship.

A bogey at the sixth hole spoiled a round which featured five birdies. "Didn't feel like I was driving it very well, but made a couple really good putts and my iron shots were really good", said Lincicome.

"There are some longer holes, some shorter ones where you can play aggressive and a par-5 on which you can get home for two", Ko said.
