Vinny Papa’s Round
Papa opened the front nine with a birdies on two of the first three holes before saving par on the fourth and fifth holes.
She then birdied the sixth and seventh holes to get to four-under par for the tournament.
A rough patch hit on nine when she made bogey, and then bogeyed 11 and 12 to fall back to one under for the day.
However, birdies on 14 and 16 saved her round from really going sideways, even thought she would bogey 17 and 18.
