LPGA Tour's Safeway Classic First Round

Locals are struggling at the difficult Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club's Ghost Creek course in North Plains, Ore.

Three players with Bradenton ties are in the field for this week's LPGA Tour Safeway Classic, and all three are over par at the moment.
Paula Creamer is 1-over par through 14 holes, while Jaclyn Sweeney is 4-over par through 10 holes.

The pair are IMG Academy alums with Creamer possessing an honorary membership at the Ritz-Carlton Members Golf Club, while Sweeney still resides in Bradenton.

Both share IMG's David Whelan as their swing coach.

Meanwhile, Bradenton native Jessica Korda is finished with her first round. She fired a 3-over par 74.

The 18-year-old isn't the only to struggle in Friday's opening round.

As of now, only 22 players sit below par on the difficult par-71 layout.
