INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Mi Jung Hur shot a 9-under 63 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the Indy Women in Tech Championship. Amy Olson and Pornanong Phatlum also shot 66. Ally McDonald followed at 67 with Lauren Stephenson , Jodi Ewart Shadoff, Mirim Lee and Chella Choi.

Lee’s previous best was a 62 in the first round of the 2016 Founders Cup.

“I don’t want to change anything,” said Lee, a two-time winner on the LPGA, “and I don’t want to think about anymore bigger than just right now.”

The ShopRite was extended to 72 holes this year for only the second time in tournament history. Nasa Hataoka and Ryann O’Toole are one shot back in a tie for third while Jennifer Song is alone at 6 under.

Brittany Altomare got off to a rip-roaring start, carding a 28 on the front nine. She dunked her tee shot on the par-3 17th for an ace, hitting a wedge from 108 yards.

“It made a loud noise,” she said. “It hit the pin, and usually when it does that I feel like it could go anywhere, but then it disappeared, so I guess that was good.”

Momentum stalled on the back nine, however, as she carded eight pars and one bogey to finish at 5 under for the day.

Lexi Thompson, the 2019 champion, shot 4 under. Sisters Nelly and Jessica Korda shot matching 68s and are five back.

While the rest of the LPGA took last week off, Stephenson teed it up on the Symetra Tour finishing tied for 17th. On her way to the event in Longwood, Florida, she stopped by to see her coach.

“We just worked on tempo and just honing my swing in a little bit,” she said. “It wasn’t too far off. Lucky since I hadn’t been hitting it as well, that kind of upped my short game. It was a blessing in disguise, because now I feel like I’ve gained a lot of confidence putting. Now my ball-striking is really good. Helped me today.”

Stephenson, 23, now in her second year on the LPGA tied for eighth in her first tournament as an LPGA pro, the ISPS Handa Vic Open, in February 2019.
