Canada Doing Well At Women's World Cup of Golf

Even though all the big stars of the LPGA aren't at the World Cup it is nice to see Canada up near the top of the leaderboard after Day 1 at the Women's World Cup of Golf in Sun City, South Africa.
Canada's Lorie Kane and Alena Sharp were three shots behind South Korea after the first round of the Women's World Cup of Golf on Friday.

The South Korean pair of Ji-Yai Shin and Eun-Hee Ji shot an 11-under 61 to take a one-stroke lead on France. Canada was next at 64, a stroke ahead of the U.S., Philippines and Sweden at the two-player team event featuring 20 countries.

Kane, from Charlottetown, and Sharp, from Hamilton, had three birdies on the front nine for a 33. They added five birdies on the back nine for a 31 to move to 8-under-par.

Saturday's format features alternate-shot foursomes.
