L.E.T. Lacoste Ladies Open de France. Hannah and Joanna At The Top September 26 2013

Lacoste Ladies Open de France Lacoste Hannah Burke and Joanna Klatten are tied at the top of the leaderboard in the Lacoste Ladies Open de France after  the opening round at Chantaco Golf Club, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, in France. Joanna Klatten, with a birdie. / Getty Joanna and Hannah both carded opening rounds of -6 under par 64, to share the lead in the Lacoste Ladies Open de France, where Temperatures topped 30C (86F) at the  Chantaco Golf Club. Joanna, the home country favorite, said she had played well, with the help of the couple she is staying with; “Every part of my game was solid today, I am very lucky to stay with Camille and her husband Gerard, because they know the course very well and Gerard came out with me on Monday and helped me out a lot with strategy and course management so I can only be thankful because he gave me a lot of good tips." Hannah Burke / Getty Hannah needed only 26 putts in her opening round of -6 under par 64, saying she had made some good ones; “I made a few good ones. Coming in, there were a lot of chances. They were some sneaky pin positions that you’ve got to be careful of. The greens are sneakily fast so you’ve got to be on the right side and I managed to plot my way around. They release or they spin back a lot because it’s really wet out there, so you have to be careful on those uphill greens.” In third place at -5  under par are Stacy Lee Bregman and Charley Hull. Stacy Lee, from South Africa scored a two on the par four 8th hole, in her bogey free round;  “I didn’t hit the best tee shot but I blocked it right and was short of the bunker. I punched a seven-iron under the tree and it ran onto the green. The girls said, ‘good shot’, and we couldn’t see the ball. We saw two balls on the green and we eventually saw the ball in the hole, so that was great. It was all round solid. That just topped it off. I played really good and had no drops on the card. I’d like to finish as high as I can on the order of merit but every tournament is a chance.” The Solheim Cup heroine Charley rolled in six birdies and had one bogey but agonizingly missed a short birdie chance on the 18th green for a share of the lead. Charley said she really wanted to shoot a 64; "I just wanted to shoot 64 because I shot 64 in Morocco and I wanted to match it. I think it was a really good round. I had six birdies and one bogey, because I missed a really small putt.” The leaderboard is very tightly packed, so these Ladies will have to play exceptionally well to stay at the top of the leaderboard.
