Jess Lasky started off the 10th tee on the North Course at 9.20am US time. Jess got off to a nervous start double bogeying the first two holes and bogeying the third. A birdie on the 13th hole saw Jess recover some ground, but she just never settled on the first nine, bogeying two more holes to turn in 43. Jess started the turn with 3 more bogeys on the first 4 holes, but rallied to finish shooting 1 under her last 5 to shot 81 (+9). This currently places Jess in a tie for 114th.
