Stacy Lewis takes early lead at Pinehurst with a 67

PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) -- Stacy Lewis set a strong pace at Pinehurst No. 2 with a 3-under 67 for an early two-shot lead in the U.S. Women's Open on Thursday.
Lewis played bogey-free on a course that was 1,064 yards shorter than it was for the opening round of the U.S. Open last week. Martin Kaymer also opened with a bogey-free round (65) and went wire-to-wire.
The biggest difference between the two weeks was the weather. Instead of cloud cover, the women faced a blazing sun that was sure to bake the greens.
Only two other players from the morning group -- So Yeon Ryu and Katherine Kirk -- broke par.
Eleven-year-old Lucy Li had a 78. The youngest qualifier in U.S. Women's Open history had her round ruined by three holes.
