Sandra Gal put on quite a show in front of a packed crowd Thursday at the inaugural Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft, shooting a 6-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead over Rolex Rankings No. 3 Inbee Park (66) after the first round of play. There were plenty of low scores to be found on what was a picturesque summer day in western Michigan. A total of 39 players shot under par in Thursday’s first round. Among them are Rolex Rankings No. 1 Stacy Lewis who sits five shots back after an opening 70 and 17-year-old rookie phenom Lydia Ko who fired a 2-under 69 on Thursday.

GAL GETS OFF TO GREAT START
Sandra Gal - who teed off on No. 10 - used a string of six consecutive birdies from hole 3 through 8 to post a 6-under 65, her low round of the season. The six consecutive birdies ties the best birdie streak on the LPGA this season.

“I was in a zone, I was really relaxed,” Gal explained. “I was talking a lot to my caddie and to my playing partners, just kind of letting it happen instead of forcing it, which every so often that’s what we golfers do.”

Gal gave part of the credit for her solid round to being able to take a bit of time off in between tournaments.

“I took a little vacation back to Germany and laid my clubs aside so I feel refreshed and then last week I went back to Orlando to get ready for this four week stretch.”


WIE WDS
Michelle Wie withdrew from the Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft after nine holes citing an right hand injury.

“I don’t know what happened,” Wie said. “It just kind of started hurting last week and just started getting worse and got to the point where I couldn’t really hold a club today. So I’m just going to try to get an MRI right now and see what my next steps are. Hopefully I can play next week, so we’ll see.”


CREAMER’S INTERESTING ROUND HAS HER IN THE HUNT

Paula Creamer said she couldn’t think of another time in all of her years of golf that she had a round like today’s first round of the Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft. Creamer tallied 17 pars and an eagle en route to an opening round 69 (-2) to sit a mere four strokes back of Sandra Gal.

“I got pretty much what I expected but going into the tomorrow I’m pleased with the way I played,” Creamer said. “Like I said, I definitely have some room for improvement but the fans are awesome. This was so nice. Teeing off early you never know what you’re going to get, but everybody’s been super supportive this whole week.”

Creamer started her days with 16 consecutive pars before going driver, 5-wood to 10-feet and draining the putt for the aforementioned eagle. Despite the solid day, Creamer sees room for improvement in tomorrow’s round.

“Just continue grinding on what I’ve been working on with my irons,” Creamer said of her keys to the rest of the week. “I gave myself some opportunities that I just didn’t capitalize on with making putts. But like I say, it’s a fun golf course. Pars are great on some of those par 4s but you’ve got to take a little bit more advantage on the par 5s.”


MCPHERSON ENJOYS HER FIRST TASTE OF LPGA ACTION WITH HER DAD ON THE BAG

Michigan State rising senior Lindsey McPherson had an up-and-down day at the Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft but still sits in position to make a run at the cutline after an opening-round 73 (+2).

“You know, I think the nerves stayed pretty much all day long, but I think what really helped is having my dad there with me, so I tried to stick with him,” McPherson explained. “A lot of players like to walk up in front of their caddie, but I like to walk with my dad. He reminds me of not golf, he reminds me of my dog that we brought with us, he’s a hoot.”

McPherson’s father wasn’t the only one out supporting her today as a group of family and friends also spent their Thursday mornings following the amateur around Blythefield.

“Oh, my gosh, I had so many family and friends out there watching me today and I’m eternally grateful to them,” McPherson said. “That helps my nerves a little bit, too, knowing that I have 30 people following me that love me no matter what I do so that helps a ton. “


FANS OUT IN FORCE DURING ROUND ONE OF MEIJER LPGA CLASSIC

Several of the world’s top players have had rave reviews for the fan support they received during the first round at Blythefield Country Club.

“I mentioned that to my caddie,” said Sandra Gal. “I was surprised how many people were out here on a Thursday morning. It’s great to see it just shows that our Tour is growing in popularity and we have this amazing fan support that we are very proud of.”

Rolex Rankings No. 1 Stacy Lewis echoed Gal’s statements.

“I was actually a little surprised at how many people showed up today. This is great,” Lewis exclaimed. “For a Thursday, I think these are awesome crowds. We’ve got great weather the rest of the week and I only expect it to get better.”

Azahara Munoz also felt the love at Blythefield.

“The golf course for starters, it’s awesome,” Munoz said. “It’s so nice. I was just telling people over there that it’s so nice how everybody’s so happy to have us here. They thank us for coming, so we really thank them for having us. It’s so nice to come to a new place like this and obviously everything is beautiful but they really want us here, so it’s much appreciated.”


QUOTE OF THE DAY

“We’ve had fans out this whole week from the practice rounds to the pro am to today even and that’s great. This is such a great golf area and everybody really respects the game of golf and understands how to play and that’s always nice and welcoming to come to. But the fans have been awesome, they have been so supportive. It’s refreshing. It’s great to come out into a new place.”

-Paula Creamer on fans at the Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft


QUOTE OF THE DAY II

“They make it look so easy. For me, it’s kind of sickening because they make it look so easy but it’s a lot of fun to watch.”

-Detroit Red Wings Forward Justin Abdelkader on coming out to watch the Meijer LPGA Classic Presented by Kraft


THE SOCIAL SCENE

While Michelle Wie released a statement to the media she also took to Twitter to apologize for her WD.

@themichellewie - Sorry I had to WD today. Thank you @meijer for hosting an amazing event. I hope to be better soon!

 

 

Sandra Gal, Rolex Rankings No. 50, -6

SANDRA GAL:  It was just, I don't know, it was a little bit of a struggle, the front nine.  Not struggle but just couldn't get anything going in the back nine ‑‑ for me it was the front nine.  Just had a flow of a little bit of momentum going and made six birdies in a row and I think just everything kind of fell nicely together. 

Q.  What's that feeling like when you got those six birdies in a row, just in a zone?

SANDRA GAL:  Yeah, I was in a zone, I was really relaxed.  I was talking a lot to my caddie and to my playing partners, just kind of letting it happen instead of forcing it, which every so often that's what we golfers do. 

Q.  A little time on the course prior to the round here the last couple days, any holes that stand out that have some personality or are interesting?

SANDRA GAL:  Well, I said that before we started playing, I felt like a lot of the holes have personality.  Each one was very different and has different challenges.  It's not like coming off the round you can't remember which hole is which, so I really like the old style course.  There's definitely a few birdies to be made but you've always got to be on the right side of the hole.  Like the short par 4 No. 7, if you're above the hole it's very, very tricky, and if you're below the hole it's a piece of cake.  So there's little subtle things you've got to watch out for.

Q.  Is it drivable?

SANDRA GAL:  No, that one is not.

Q.  Any certain part of your game that really allowed you to have success today or was it kind of everything?

SANDRA GAL:  I just ‑‑ like my swing is coming together a little bit, hitting little fades and it keeps me in the fairway.  And then obviously you've got to have a good putting day shooting 6‑under so I felt like I had that.  I hit a couple close, so just a little bit of everything.

Q.  Obviously a 65 is nice and six straight birdies is good, but do you feel like you left some birdies out there?  Are there more to get?

SANDRA GAL:  Yeah, I feel like, I started on the back nine, so that nine I just shot even par.  There's definitely a few more birdies out there.  Like the 11th is a par 5, I just made par there, so there's for sure more opportunities.

Q.  Overall, how is the course?

SANDRA GAL:  The course is in great shape.  Like I said, it's very ‑‑ how do you say it?  It has a lot of different kinds of holes so it always keeps you on your toes, but lovely trees and really nice greens.


Inbee Park, Rolex Rankings No. 3, -5

MODERATOR:  Good afternoon, everyone.  We would like to welcome in Inbee Park into the interview room.  Congratulations, Inbee.  A great 5‑under par round today, currently sitting in second.  What was the key to your successful round today?

INBEE PARK:  Everything was working really well today, especially the iron shots because these greens are really firm in the afternoon.  Where the greens were, we can't really stop them.  My distance control was really good out there.  I holed those putts where I needed to hole and I had six birdies today and just one bogey.  I mean, it's been a really good round and I think I didn't miss that many fairways or greens, so that helped a lot.

MODERATOR:  This is the first time you guys have seen this golf course this week getting to play out here in Grand Rapids for the first time.  How do you like the golf course?  Does it seem to really suit your game well?

INBEE PARK:  Yeah, I think so, because it's not really wide fairways, you need accurate tee shot.  The greens are really firm, so you kind of have to think where you've got to land and where it's going to roll out.  There's a lot of dogleg holes so you need to pick a good target off the tee.  The greens are rolling really well, they're rolling really true.  I hit a lot of good putts today so that's giving me some confidence going into the next three days.

MODERATOR:  We always talk about first year events, it's always exciting to see people get excited about the event.  How surprised were you I guess to see so many people out here on a Thursday, and was this one of the more impressive crowds you've seen for a first day of play?

INBEE PARK:  Yeah, you know, I just ‑‑ my last tournament was International Crown and we got a lot of crowd there.  I thought it was all International Crown again because there was so many people on Thursday.  Just very happy with how many people came out and watch us, supporting us.  It definitely gives us a lot of energy to play for.  And yeah, being a first year I think more people coming out and watching it, it helps a lot more.  Hopefully next three days we get a lot more crowd and we get a lot more excited. 

MODERATOR:  Questions for Inbee? 

Q.  Do you like the traditional, old style courses?

INBEE PARK:  Yeah.  I mean, I like tree‑lined golf courses and I like the old style because you need an accurate tee shot and you've got to think where to hit your tee shots, not just hitting it in the center.  I like the golf courses where that's a little bit challenging and you really have to think about it so I think this golf course definitely makes you think about it.  Some tee shots, there are some blind tee shots and a lot of dogleg holes.  I like dogleg holes, so there's many of them here so I like that.

Q.  You've been No. 1 in the world before.  Is it your goal to kind of get back there?  Is that something you think about even when you're playing?

INBEE PARK:  I don't play for that every week obviously.  I just kind of think about it, but that would be my goal for later, later in the year and stuff like when I have an opportunity.  But there is that kind of thinking in my mind somewhere but that's not just my only ‑‑ that's not just my only goal.  I play to win golf tournaments and just try to bring that trophy home every week.  That's probably going to get me back to the No. 1 spot sometime.

Q.  How important is this week for you personally with a major next week?

INBEE PARK:  I think this is going to be a big confidence boost going into next week.  I think I picked this week because it's kind of similar to probably next week's setup with tree‑lined golf courses and some dogleg holes and roughs.  I think it's going to be very good practice and very good confidence booster for next week, so that will be good.

Q.  Inbee, what do you have to do in these next three days to stay at the top of the leaderboard?

INBEE PARK:  I think the key would be hitting a lot of greens because once you miss the greens here, it's not really easy to get it up and down.  And the greens are just going to get firmer and firmer so it's going to be tougher to stop the balls.  To make birdies you've got to be on the greens here.  Greens are not huge here so once you're on them, it's makeable.  Yeah, hitting a lot of greens and hole some putts.

MODERATOR:  Inbee, last year for you was all about the majors when you won three straight, including the Wegmans LPGA Championship.  It's going to be at a different golf course this year, but do you judge yourself in a year based upon major performance or just on wins?  Without having a major title this year, you do have one victory, how are you judging your year so far?  How do you feel about how you've performed so far this year?

INBEE PARK:  I think I've been really consistent this year, probably more consistent than last year.  I didn't have as many wins as last year, but I'm really happy with my game and I just didn't hole as many putts this last year, that's all.  Obviously I could have won a couple more but sometimes you kind of ‑‑ you miss your opportunity.  There's still half a season left, so yeah, I mean, but I think I'm quite satisfied how I played this year.  I mean, no matter how good I played this year, it's never going to satisfy me if I compare it with last year.  Really a year really, that's tough to beat.  I'm just trying to set up a new goal.  Six wins and three majors is kind of tough to beat every year.  Just hopefully a couple more wins this year would be very nice.

MODERATOR:  And we've seen that, as you've said, that's a difficult year to follow up, three major victories, but you seem to be playing well of late.  International Crown, we saw some great performances out of you.  Manulife with the victory.  Do you feel like your game's starting to come together now at a good point in the season for it to?

INBEE PARK:  Yeah, I think since the British Open it's kind of come along together really well, and especially at the International Crown I felt like my putter was a little bit there again, so yeah.  And today I hit a lot of good putts out there and seen a few going in.  Hopefully I can putt a little bit better the next three days and hopefully that gives me a little more confidence.



Azahara Munoz, Rolex Rankings No. 21, -3

Q.  Happy to be joined by Azahara Munoz after a 3‑under round to start the Meijer LPGA Classic.  Aza, what was working for you out there today?

AZAHARA MUNOZ:  Everything was really working.  I was hitting my drivers pretty nicely.  I was hitting my iron shots really well.  I hit a lot of greens and made a couple nice putts, too, so that always helps.  But overall I kept it always in play and gave myself a lot of chances.

Q.  You're coming off an International Crown team victory but that has to help you from an individual standpoint.  How do you feel that that event kind of catapulted you into this week?

AZAHARA MUNOZ:  I love it.  Every time I play Solheim, the next few events I play really well.  I feel like when I play match play, I play so much more confident, I hit lots of good shots and my putter seems to work much better.  That gives me a lot of confidence for the next few events, so hopefully it keeps coming for me.

Q.  Finally, first year event in Grand Rapids, great turnout so far.  Can you kind of talk about that a little bit?

AZAHARA MUNOZ:  Yeah, it's amazing.  The golf course for starters, it's awesome.  It's so nice.  I was just telling people over there that it's so nice how everybody's so happy to have us here.  They thank us for coming, so we really thank them for having us.  It's so nice to come to a new place like this and obviously everything is beautiful but they really want us here, so it's much appreciated.

 


Gerina Piller, Rolex Rankings No. 30, -3

Q.  How was your round of golf today?

GERINA PILLER:  I had a pretty decent day.  I didn't finish the way I liked, so just hoping to continue tomorrow.

Q.  Talk a little bit about the 9th, being out of play and everything.  How were you able to keep going through that, and what happened on your shot?

GERINA PILLER:  Well, I just needed to hook it around the tree and I didn't hook it.  I wasn't dead, it was a good place to miss it.  Just didn't get up and down.  That happens.

Q.  Is it easy to come back from?  Seems like you did all right mentally coming back after that.

GERINA PILLER:  It was my last hole, so...

Q.  Right.  I mean, how do you feel mentally that you came back from that, how tough is that?

GERINA PILLER:  I mean, it's fine.  You make bogeys, you're going to make bogeys.  There's lots of birdies out there, so just keep doing what I'm doing.

Q.  How was the course overall?

GERINA PILLER:  The course is in phenomenal shape, they did a really good job.  Just excited to be here.

Q.  Was it beneficial at all being able to get out a little bit earlier, have a little bit softer greens?

GERINA PILLER:  They've definitely firmed up from yesterday and beginning of the week, but it's just one of those things where you can't ‑‑ that's something you can't really control.  I'll play late in the afternoon tomorrow, so it's definitely nicer obviously to have a few more greens that are more receptive and so they're pure.  I really enjoyed the course.

Q.  What did you pick up today that you can do differently or improve on tomorrow? 

GERINA PILLER:  Probably hit more fairways.  I wasn't as good with my driver as I normally am.

Q.  Were you surprised (inaudible) pin placements, anything more difficult than what you've seen before in practice?

GERINA PILLER:  No, not necessarily.  Seven is just a difficult hole, the green is really severe and the second shot's really severe uphill, and you don't really want to be long so it don't really leave you a whole lot of room for error and that's where I doubled.  Just one of those things where I just can't put myself in that position, but came back and birdied the next hole so that was nice.

Q.  How did you do on 7 when you practiced?

GERINA PILLER:  I did okay.  I mean, I hit the fairway, so that's always nice.  I was not in the fairway today, so makes it a little tougher trying to spin it out of the rough.  The rough is pretty healthy and thick.  I think I just need to focus on hitting more fairways.

Q.  Would you say 7 is the hardest one?

GERINA PILLER:  The hardest green.  I would say like 9 and 18 are tougher, they're more demanding off the tee and they're not short, so those are ‑‑ there's a lot of holes out here that don't kind of get your attention, you have to really kind of concentrate on a lot of your tee shots out here.  You can't just hit it straight, you really have to place yourself in the fairway or else you get blocked out by a tree so it's really demanding off the tee box.

Q.  Sandra Gal is 6‑under.  Thoughts on that number and how the course played today?

GERINA PILLER:  Well, it's only Thursday so there's lots of golf to be played and it's definitely out there.


Paula Creamer, Rolex Rankings No. 12, -2

PAULA CREAMER:  ... more than I wanted to but I knew that coming in.  But it's a fun golf course, you just have to stay patient.  And it was nice to make that putt on my 17th hole, which was No. 8, but I know what I need to work on going into the next several days.

Q.  What do you have to do for tomorrow? 

PAULA CREAMER:  Just continue grinding on what I've, like I said, I've been working on with my irons.  I gave myself some opportunities that I just didn't capitalize on with making putts.  But like I say, it's a fun golf course.  Pars are great on some of those par 4s but you've got to take a little bit more advantage on the par 5s.

Q.  Were you surprised (inaudible)?

PAULA CREAMER:  No, I got pretty much what I expected.  In the morning it plays a little bit longer, the ball doesn't quite go as far, the greens get much more bouncy in the afternoon, but going into the tomorrow I'm pleased with the way I played.  Like I said, I definitely have some room for improvement but the fans are awesome.  This was so nice.  Teeing off early you never know what you're going to get, but everybody's been super supportive this whole week.

Q.  Speaking of fans, I see behind here you've got these young kids with their pink signs and their pink shirts rooting you on.  How does that make you feel?

PAULA CREAMER:  Oh, it's great.  They walked with us all 18 holes, that's really special.  I'm so glad I'm here in Grand Rapids.  Like I said, this is going to be a great week.  Hopefully this tournament can last many, many more years because this is a great stop for the LPGA Tour.

Q.  (Inaudible)

PAULA CREAMER:  I mean, like I said, we've had fans out this whole week from the practice rounds to the pro‑am to today even and that's great.  You never know, but this is such a great golf area and everybody really respects the game of golf and understands how to play and that's always nice and welcoming to come to.  But the fans have been awesome, they have been so supportive.  It's refreshing.  It's great to come out into a new place.

Q.  Take us through the eagle.

PAULA CREAMER:  I went driver, 5‑wood to about 10 feet and made it on No. 8, my 17th hole.


Stacy Lewis, Rolex Rankings No. 1, -1

Q.  How did you do today?

STACY LEWIS:  I played a lot better than the score today.  I've been working on a few things with my golf swing and was pretty happy actually with the way I hit it, just had a bunch of putts right over the edge.  But overall pretty happy with it even though the score's not quite what I was looking for.

Q.  Looked like the back nine was a little bit tougher than the front for you, is that true?

STACY LEWIS:  Yeah, I think the actual back nine that we started on is the harder side.  I think those four holes coming in are pretty tough.  And then on the front side you can make some birdies, you've got some par 5s and wedges in there.

Q.  Biggest thing to take out of today going forward to the rest of the week?

STACY LEWIS:  Just that I hit the ball really solid.  That's kind of something I've been struggling with.  I actually got it to the hole today and wasn't coming up short and right, which is kind of my miss, so just a little bit more in control of my shots.  Just need to get those putts on the edge to fall in.

Q.  How did you like the course?

STACY LEWIS:  The course is great.  It's what I expected.  The greens are a little bit tricky, you have to be very specific with your reads.  You get penalized for missing shots, which is what you want.

Q.  With your biggest fan here in your arms and the rest of your family cheering section following you around, does it feel like home even though it's a state away?

STACY LEWIS:  Yeah, I mean, it's just cool how they can travel so much and just be a part of it.  They love coming out and watching, and this guy loves coming out and hitting some shots with me.  As much as we travel it's nice to have family around.

Q.  (Inaudible)

STACY LEWIS:  You know, it really don't change it much.  It's just nice to come off the course and maybe just be a little bit more relaxed than you would normally.  He doesn't really care what I shoot, he doesn't know whether I win or lose and that's the best part.

Q.  You said yesterday you kind of needed that break you had before this tournament.  Did you feel more relaxed, more like yourself today?

STACY LEWIS:  I did, I felt a lot more relaxed out there, just not as tired, just excited about what I'm working on more than anything instead of dragging trying to figure things out.

Q.  How was the first day crowds?

STACY LEWIS:  First day crowds, I was actually, I was a little surprised at how many people showed up today.  This is great.  For a Thursday, I think these are awesome crowds.  We've got great weather the rest of the week and I only expect it to get better.

 


Lindsey McPherson, Sponsor Invite, +1

Q.  You had some challenges.

LINDSEY McPHERSON:  Yeah, the first three holes I think I was the most nervous out of everything today.  Obviously the first hole, once you get that out of the way you feel a little bit better, but the next two holes I hit a par 5 in two and two‑putt from there and I hit it close on the par 3 and made the putt in.  Then the bogeys, they were just routine bogeys.  I didn't hit such a great drive into the fairway, hit it on the green and two‑putted, so I wasn't real upset about those.  Every bogey that I made today I wasn't upset about, just happens, normal kind of run‑of‑the‑mill stuff.  I thought I played pretty solid today.  I thought I played better than what my score showed but I thought I played really solid for being as nervous as I was today.

Q.  That's what I was going to say.  You were saying you were nervous coming in.  How did you manage that and was there a point where you were able to let that go?

LINDSEY McPHERSON:  You know, I think the nerves stayed pretty much all day long, but I think what really helped is having my dad there with me, so I tried to stick with him.  A lot of players like to walk up in front of their caddie, but I like to walk with my dad.  He reminds me of not golf, he reminds me of my dog that we brought with us, he's a hoot.  So just kind of taking my mind off of golf for a while while we were out there, it really helped me focus.  Just figuring out the numbers with him instead of using a range finder like you do in a regular tournament, figuring out the numbers, doing the math with him really just kind of helped me get away until I had to focus on my shot.

Q.  You being from Michigan and going to Michigan State, how were the fans for you?

LINDSEY McPHERSON:  Oh, my gosh, I had so many family and friends out there watching me today and I'm eternally grateful to them.  That helps my nerves a little bit, too, knowing that I have 30 people following me that love me no matter what I do so that helps a ton.

Q.  How often do you walk up to a green on 18 and have people in the stands cheering Go Green?

LINDSEY McPHERSON:  Oh, never, never, but that was absolutely awesome.  I feel like I was cheering Go White all day long today.  I heard so many Go Greens and just that encouragement helps so much.

Q.  What can you say to encourage these younger ladies here to get into the sport and what can you do to help them get there?

LINDSEY McPHERSON:  What I would say is you can do whatever you want to do if you put your mind to it.  I didn't start playing seriously until I was 15 years old.  I mean honestly, just being an athlete has helped me get to this point.  You can do whatever you want to do if you put your mind to it and I've had people around me that have been telling me that my whole life and I firmly believe that.  I hope that encourages them.

Q.  Talk about the course itself.  Any surprises out there and what was easier than you expected, how about more difficult?

LINDSEY McPHERSON:  You know, actually it was a little bit easier out there today than the practice rounds, just worrying about one shot rather than in the practice rounds what if I land here, what if I end up here.  Just focusing on one shot, focusing on the shot ahead of me I think actually it was a little bit easier on me.  I was a little bit easier on myself today.

Q.  What do you have to do for tomorrow?

LINDSEY McPHERSON:  Tomorrow?  I've got to go get some food and I've got to get a good night's sleep and I've got to just get out here with a clear mind and play the golf course just like I'm even par again.

 

Michelle Wie, Rolex Rankings No. 5, WD

Q.  Just want to tell everybody kind of what happened there, what's bothering you?

MICHELLE WIE:  I don't know what happened.  It just kind of started hurting last week and just started getting worse and got to the point where I couldn't really hold a club today.  So I'm just going to try to get an MRI right now and see what my next steps are.  Hopefully I can play next week, so we'll see.
