2011 U.S. Women's Open: Stacy Lewis Emerges As 1st Round Leader, Paula Creamer, Yani Tseng Trailing

The 2011 U.S. Women's Open is just about ready to complete its first round and Stacy Lewis is the lone leader atop the board with a 3-under score. After finishing her first nine holes at even-par, Lewis birdied three of the first six holes on her back nine. She slipped with a bogey on her second-to-last hole, but rebounded with a birdie on the ninth hole.

Amateur Amy Anderson is tied for second with Lizette Salas and Ryann O'Toole at 2-under. Cristie Kerr, who had started the day with the lead at 2-under, is currently even-par. Karen Stupples held the lead at 3-under earlier in the day, but a double bogey on the 12th and three bogeys on three of the last four holes brought her to 1-over.

Paula Creamer is 1-over as well after sinking four bogeys and three birdies. Yani Tseng, also a favorite entering the tournament, is at 2-over after Round 1.

ESPN2's coverage is set to begin at 3 p.m. MT, just as Round 2 gets underway.
