Dori Carter challenges for lead at Pure Silk Bahamas Classic

AMERICAN Dori Carter stormed into contention at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic this morning as the 60 players stranded by yesterday’s bad weather resumed their first rounds.

Carter, 28, picked up five strokes in five holes, including an eagle at the par five 11th and three birdies, from the tenth to move within a stroke of the leader, Brooke Pancake. Carter recovered from dropping a shot at the short 17th by getting a four at the par-five 18th for a round of 68 to join four other players on five under par, the Americans Natalie Gulbis, Brittany Linicome and the South Koreans, Inbee Park and Mirim Lee, who birdied her final hole today.

Joanna Klatten, of Holland, and three more South Koreans, Jenny Shin and Kelly Shon, an amateur, finished off their first rounds this morning and are among a group of six players to have carded a 69, two strokes behind the leader.

The second round is scheduled to start later.
