So is this fair: the men get to play in summer like weather for 4 days at St. Andrews, while the women get stuck with wet, wintry weather at Royal Birkdale? How bad was it? Only 6 people managed to shoot under par.

Annika, who shot 1-0ver, said: “It was obviously very, very difficult today — rainy, wet and cold. We had it all.” Annika’s assessment was shared by Michelle Wie, who bemoaned: “I have played in rain before. I have played in wind before. I have played in cold before, but not all put together… They were the hardest conditions I ever played in.” Michelle wasn’t kidding, just look at the winter hat she was wearing: pic here. She better tell Jesper Parnevik to said some warmer clothes! (See here.)

Despite the bad weather, South Korean Jeong Jang managed a stellar -4 round to capture the first day lead. Lorena Ochoa was not so fortunate, shooting an 85 for +13 and near dead last. Ouch.
