Park, top field ready to go low at Marathon LPGA




SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) — What long was known as the Jamie Farr stop on the LPGA Tour is now the Marathon Classic.

One thing that hasn’t changed is that there will likely be a flood of subpar scores when it gets under way on Thursday.

World No. 1 Inbee Park, No. 2 Stacy Lewis and a pack of elite players are primed for typically low scores at Highland Meadows.

So Yeon Ryu shot a final-round 62 to come off the pace to win last year, Paula Creamer had a 60 in the first round five years ago en route to victory and rookie Se Ri Pak put up a 61 in 1998 while winning her first of a record five titles at the course.

Once again, conditions are ideal for lots of birdies.
