SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. -- Ha-Neul Kim saw friend Inbee Park after the worlds top-ranked player took the lead in the morning session at the U.S. Womens Open. Kim, with an afternoon tee time playing the major for the first time, wondered, "Wow, how did she shoot that score?" Then Kim went out Thursday and shot one stroke better, finishing with a bogey-free, 6-under 66 to take the first-round lead at Sebonack. Park is trying to make history by winning the first three majors of the year. For a day at least, she was upstaged by a much less-heralded fellow South Korean. "Im enjoying myself," Kim said through a translator. "Im just happy to be here and to be playing in this big event. Im not really thinking about winning or results but enjoying the moment." Currently a member of the KLPGA Tour, Kim is a seven-time winner in South Korea. She kept giving herself short birdie putts Thursday and making them. Kim birdied her second-to-last hole with daylight waning to claim the lead after Park held it for most of the day with her 67 in the morning session. No player has won the first three majors in a season with at least four majors. The 2008 U.S. Womens Open champion, Park has already won five times this year, including her last two tournaments. American Lizette Salas, Swedes Caroline Hedwall and Anna Nordqvist and South Koreas I.K. Kim shot 68. Maude-Aimee LeBlanc of Sherbrooke, Que,. is three shots back at 69. Brooke Mackenzie Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., carded a 71. Charlottetowns Lorie Kane, Jessica Sheply of Owen Sound, Ont., Nicole Zhang of Calgary and Kirby Dreher of Fort St. John, B.C., shot 77. Shephanie Sherlock of Barrie, Ont., is another shot back. Isabelle Beisiegel of St. Hilaire, Que., turned in an 84. Concerned about bad weather, tournament officials moved up the tees, and with the rain holding off, Park was able to play aggressively. "I never had practiced from those tees, so I was a little bit shocked when I went to the tees," Park said. Not that she was complaining. She repeatedly set up short putts, and the way she has excelled in her short game lately, Park was headed to a low score. "So instead of hitting like 5-irons, we were hitting 9-irons, and that was making the course much easier," she said. "I was actually able to go for some pins and give myself a lot of opportunities today. I made a lot of putts and didnt leave much out there." Starting on No. 10, Park birdied her first hole, then started racking up pars. She made the turn at 2 under before birdies on three of her next four holes. At 5 under, Park briefly struggled with her tee shots, needing to save par on Nos. 5 and 7. On No. 6, her 15th hole of the day, she had to lay up out of the tall grass and settled for her lone bogey. Park got back to 5 under on the par-5 eighth with a chip shot to about 5 feet that set up a birdie putt. Hedwall and I.K. Kim were each at 5 under with a hole left, but closed with bogeys. Nordqvist birdied her last two holes to pull into the tie for third. The two Swedes grew up playing together. "Certainly seeing her shooting 4 under in the morning session gave me a little bit of inspiration for the afternoon," Nordqvist said. Salas, a 23-year-old former Southern California star, played with Park in the last group of the final round of this years Kraft Nabisco Championship. Three strokes back starting the day, she opened with a double bogey and tumbled to 25th after shooting a 79. She bounced back to reach a playoff at the LPGA Lotte Championship in April, losing to Suzann Pettersen for her best finish on tour. "Im just getting a lot more used to being in contention and really studying the leaderboard and really managing my patience," Salas said. "I think thats been key for me this week. Yes, I still get nervous on the first tee and my hands keep shaking, but I just know that if I just trust myself and trust my instincts, I can perform out here." Chiles Paz Echeverria, a 28-year-old LPGA Tour rookie also making her U.S. Womens Open debut, shot 69. Among eight players at 70 was Natalie Gulbis, who withdrew from a tournament and missed two others earlier this year because of malaria. Infected by a mosquito during the LPGA Thailand in late February, she returned for the Kraft Nabisco in early April. Gulbis hasnt finished better than 13th since, missing the cut at the LPGA Championship. Defending champion Na Yeon Choi, second-ranked Stacy Lewis and amateurs Kyung Kim and Brooke Henderson were among 11 players at 71. Lydia Ko, the 16-year-old New Zealand amateur who won the Canadian Open last August to become the youngest LPGA Tour winner, had a 72. Juli Inkster, playing in a record-breaking 34th U.S. Womens Open at age 53, holed a 103-yard wedge shot for eagle on the 18th to also finish at 72. Michelle Wie opened her round with a quadruple-bogey 8 on No. 10. She was at 11 over through 14 holes before birdies on three of the last four to finish with an 80. With Parks two major titles to start the year, South Koreans have won four straight majors. But Ha-Neul Kim was an unlikely representative to lead after the first round of this tournament. "I was very nervous coming in, and I thought in the practice round that the course was very difficult," she said. "Before playing today I thought that even par would be a very good score for me."

At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014.After a dramatic final day of the league phase, the IPL is reaching its climax with just four teams remaining as the tournament heads into the home straight. Gujarat Lions take on Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday with the victors advancing straight to Sundays final.Defeat will not spell the end for the losing side, though, as they will be given another shot to reach the final when they play the winners of the clash between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders. IPL knock-out stage on Sky Sports Tues: Gujarat v RCB (3pm, SS1) Wed: Sunrisers v Kolkata (3pm, SS1) Fri: IPL qualifier (3pm, SS1) Sun: The final (3pm, SS5) A pulsating play-off campaign awaits but how have the lucky quartet got this far and who have been their stars? We take a look…GUJARAT LIONS Aaron Finch started the competition in blistering form for the Lions League position: FirstTop run maker: Suresh Raina (397)Top wicket taker: Dwayne Bravo (15)Unheralded star: Dhawal KulkarniLeague-stage story: The newly-formed team got off to a flyer by winning six of their first seven games, including a couple of last-ball classics against Rising Pune Supergiants and Delhi Daredevils, to put themselves in a strong position to qualify with Aaron Finch looking unstoppable. An injury to Finch and a run of three straight defeats allowed the chasing pack to catch up, but they finished strongly to finish top of the pile. Gujarat Lions Aaron Finch discusses his sides journey to the IPL play-offs and moving up and down the batting order While Finch struggled to rediscover his best form, Suresh Raina stepped up and with Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith also in their ranks, they do not lack hitting power. With the ball, Dwayne Bravo remains the standout but was ably assisted by Dhawal Kulkarni, who took 14 wickets, and Praveen Kumar.ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE Virat Kohli has been imperious throughout for RCB League position: SecondTop run maker: Virat Kohli (919)Top wicket taker: Yuzvendra Chalal (19)Unheralded star: Lokesh RahulLeague-stage story: With a batting line-up that boasts Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle and Shane Watson it is perhaps little surprise that RCB have made it through to the play-offs. However, just two wins in their first seven games showed there is more to T20 than just batting with the deficiencies in their bowling attack clear to see. Chris Jordan was drafted in help out and while the Englishman did well, it is hard to look past the RCB batsmen, in particular Kohli and De Villiers when explaining their sharp upturn in fortunes. Michael Carberry, Dominic Cork and Mark Butcher look back at an incredible partnership between Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers Kohli is on course to become the first player to reach 1,000 runs in an IPL campaign, having hit four tons and six half-centuries, the Indian making De Villiers one century and five half-centuries look like a meagre haul! Even after five wins in six, RCB still needed to beat Delhi in the final game of the league phase to reach this stage but, again, Kohli stepped up to see them home by six wickets.dddddddddddd They are very much the team in form.SUNRISERS HYDERABAD Sunrisers Hyderabads David Warner has led form the front League position: ThirdTop run maker: David Warner (658)Top wicket taker: Bhuvneshwar Kumar (18)Unheralded star: Barinder SranLeague-stage story: Captain David Warner has been in sparkling form for the Sunrisers, who, after two early defeats, won seven of their next eight matches to all-but seal their place in the top four. They slipped to defeat in three of their final four fixtures, though, and the worry for them may be that they have lost form at just the wrong moment.They can take comfort in the fact that Warner, at least, shows no signs of slowing up with two half-centuries in that run, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Barinder Sran have performed consistently throughout. Mustafizur Rahman, meanwhile, has arguably been the bowler of the tournament but has shown signs of fatigue in the past couple of games.KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS Fresh from World T20 success, Andre Russell has excelled at KKR League position: FourthTop run maker: Gautam Gambhir (473)Top wicket taker: Andre Russell (15)Unheralded star: Sunil NarineLeague-stage story: The two-time IPL champions sneaked into the top four with victory over the Sunrisers on the final day of the league phase. However, after four wins from their first five games, the Knight Riders would have hoped to have secured qualification far sooner, only to win just two of their next five. They remained in a strong position, though, going into their final four games, but defeats to RCB and Gujarat Lions kept them waiting until the last.Captain Gautam Gambhir has been the main man with the bat, with his opening partner Robin Uthappa also making a number of useful contributions and the experienced Yusuf Pathan finding form at just the right time. Andre Russell has starred with the ball taking 15 wickets, while Sunil Narine has been as economic as ever since his return, claiming 11 wickets. See whether Gujarat or Bangalore clinch an immediate place in the IPL final, from 3pm, Tuesday, Sky Sports 1, before finding out who gets dumped out when Sunrisers Hyderabad tackle Kolkata Knight Riders, from 3pm, Wednesday on the same channel.
