EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Lydia Ko is back on top of the Canadian Women's Open leaderboard.
The 16-year-old Ko, the winner last year at Vancouver Golf Club at an LPGA Tour-record age of 15 years, 4 months, shot a 5-under 65 on Thursday in perfect conditions at Royal Mayfair for a share of the first-round lead with Angela Stanford and the Netherland's Christel Boeljon.
Ko, the South Korean-born New Zealander, had six birdies and a bogey.
Stanford rebounded after going 0-4 last week in the United States' Solheim Cup loss in Colorado. The Texan birdied five of the first 12 holes in her bogey-free round.
Boeljon had a hole-in-one on the 16th hole. She also had a bogey-free round, playing Nos. 15-17 in 4 under.
