Kylie, Yu Yang Zhang and Charley Hull are tied at the top of the board at the Ladies German Open, all recording first rounds of -8 under par 64. Kylie, the Deloitte Ladies Open champion, was bogey free in her first round and said: “It’s one of those courses where there are a lot of birdies out there but I was hitting it nice and close into the par fours and took advantage on the par fives. As a golfer you’re always going to say you left a couple out there but I’m really happy with eight under and it’s a good solid start.” 18 year-old Charley Hull / Getty Images Charley, the Lalla Meryem Cup champion threw in a bogey in her round, and reported a change of grip before she started worked well; “I played the back nine first and I wasn’t quite feeling it, I couldn’t get going and didn’t have any motivation so I said to Gary, ‘Set me a target.’ I was one under at the time and he said, ‘Get to eight under for your round. So I said, ‘Okay’, and shot six under on my back nine. It was quite good." “Today, two minutes before my tee time, I changed my putting grip, and it worked pretty well. Last week, I didn’t have my hands fully enough on the grip with my putting stroke and I’m not holing enough putts. I get quite streaky where one round I hole every putt and another I miss, so this way I can get more feel and hold it more. To shoot eight under, you’ve got to hole the putts and you’ve got to finish it off, so eight under any day is not a bad score.” Yu Yang Zhang / Getty Images Yu putted well today, and only missed two greens in regulation, so that was good she said; “Today my putting was really good and I think everything was in good shape. I hit 16 greens and even the two when I wasn’t on the green, I chipped in and putted in, so that’s really good.”
