Lee starts well at U.S. Open, while fellow Aggie Hansen earns award

PINEHURST, N.C. — UC Davis golfer Paige Lee carded a 73 to tie for 35th place after the first round of the U.S. Women’s Open on Thursday at Pinehurst Country Club No. 2.

Inclement weather stopped first-round action on Thursday evening with nearly 30 players in the 156-player field still on the course.

Lee, who will be a sophomore in the fall, had five birdies and eight bogeys in a round that saw her better 11-year-old Lucy Li by five strokes. Aggie fans will recall it was Li — the youngest player in U.S. Open history — who won the Half Moon Bay qualifier in front of Lee.

An All-Big West first-teamer this season, Lee played in one of the tournament’s opening groups and started on the 10th hole. She quickly jumped to 2-under with birdies on the par-5, 455-yard 10th hole and the par-4, 385-yard 11th.

Lee capped her opening nine holes with another birdie on the par-4 18th to help her make the turn at 1-under.

Stacy Lewis, the 2013 British Open winner who played collegiate golf at Arkansas, was the first-day leader with a 3-under-par 67 on the 6,296-yard course.

Michelle Wie, herself a child prodigy when she broke on the scene at age 13, sat in second after shooting a 68 in the first round.

Paige Lee is a Granite Bay High graduate and the daughter of Pia and Bruce Lee.

Meanwhile, Golfweek named 2014 Aggie grad Matt Hansen to its All-American honorable mention list on Thursday.

Hansen, who last week was awarded the Colby E. “Babe” Slater Award as the university’s top male athlete, is the only Big West Conference golfer to receive a Golfweek nod.

In addition to being a BWC first-team selection, Hansen won back-to-back tournaments — the El Macero Classic and the Big West Championship — this spring.

A Morro Bay High grad, Hansen’s parents are Kristin and Ken.
