Aditi Ashok saw all her scoring action in the five holes as she shot one-under 71 to lie tied-33rd after the first round of rain-delayed Meijer LPGA Classic. Aditi shot a birdie, an eagle and two bogeys -- all coming within a span of five holes from 14th to the 18th after teeing off from the 10th at the Blythefield Country Club. She parred the rest of the holes, including the whole front nine of the course.

This week becomes significant as Aditi has made only four cuts in 11 starts on the LPGA this season with a best of T-30 at the Hugel-Air Premia LA Open in April. She missed the cut at the year's first Major, the ANA Inspiration, but finished T-39 at the US Women's Open.

Next week she is due to play the third Major of the year, the KPMG Women's PGA Championships at the famed Hazeltine National next week. With a rain-delay affecting the day's schedule and delaying the start by seven hours, Katherine Perry and Jenny Shin were in a share of the lead at 6-under 66 when the first round was suspended because of darkness on Thursday night.

Perry had eight birdies and two bogeys while Shin finished on the front nine, making three straight birdies from sixth to eighth. Mariajo Uribe of Colombia, playing alongside Aditi, Ashok, had a hole-in-one on the 15th — her sixth hole — in a round of 67. She birdied the final two holes. Canadian Brooke Henderson also aced the 15th but she was four-under through six holes.

Top-ranked Jin Young Ko, Lizette Salas, Nasa Hataoka, Sarah Burnham and Mina Harigae shot 68.
