We had a few matches end early. First, Mina Hardin disposed of Michelle Griffith, 8 and 6. Griffith is the daughter of touring professional and multi U.S. Senior Open champion Allen Doyle.
Moments later, Jennifer Lucas dispatched Abbey Reif-Hornsby, 8 and 6. Lucas jumped out to a 5-up lead through the first six holes.
"I played a really steady round," said Lucas. Her best sequence came on No. 5 when she saved par from a bunker. She sank a 15-foot putt.
Finally, Robin Burke eliminated Kay Daniel, 5 and 4. Burke went 4 up through the first six holes before Daniel clawed her way back, reducing the deficit to two holes. Burke carded seven bogeys and felt fortunate to get the victory. She won two holes with bogeys.
"I hit a lot of bad shots. It was not a good ball-striking day. Neither of us played very well. But in match play, you're always going to have one bad round. Hopefully this was it for me," said Burke.
Asked what poor ball-striking does to the confidence, Burke said, "Your confidence feels like someone stepped on you like a grape."
Burke will face Hardin in Tuesday's second round.
