Young fired a trio of bogeys in both the front and back nine to cap round one with a plus-9, 81. Young birdied the par-4 14th hole, she parred the rest of the course. Pei-Ying Tsai is the leader at minus-4.

Round two will take place on Friday.

Young has two professional victories on her resume on North American soil and also competed in the the CP Women’s Open in Regina this past summer with a sponsor quota spot.
