Birdies on Nos. 11 (par 5, 446 yards) and 18 (par 4, 315 yards) allowed the 55-year-old, Canton, Ohio resident to lead the field of 17 players by three shots.

The day’s cut line stopped at 11-over-par 83. Cedarbrook Country Club’s Diana Cardano-Casacio edged RiverCrest’s Lisa Klein in a sudden-death playoff for the final qualifying spot.

A total of 415 entrants will be comprised of exempt players and qualifiers from 25 qualifying events across the country.
