Thirty-four of the 156 players shot under par in Round 1. Don't expect it to last. "The greens here are going to get faster," said South Korean golf Hee-Won Han, who shot 4-under 68. "There's lots of undulations in these greens with two and three tiers. It's pretty narrow and the greens are pretty fast."

HALL OF NIGHT FOR WALTERS

The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame welcomed a new member last night. An induction ceremony was held for Lisa Walters at the Hunt Club. Legendary Canadian golfers Dawn Coe-Jones and Nancy Scranton spoke during the ceremony.

NOT ON LORENA'S WATCH

Lorena Ochoa doesn't do a lot of scoreboard-watching. She teed off late in the day, and wasn't worried about the 5-under 67 Annika Sorenstam had put up in the morning. "Other players are out of your control. I always try to concentrate on my own game and that's it." -- Bruce Garrioch

CHRIS WILL SEND IN A NOTE ON WIE

l LOOKING GOOD: The Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club was ripe for plucking yesterday and 34 players were able to take advantage of the conditions. That's how many in the field of 156 players were able to finish with scores under par during Round 1 of the CN Women's Open. "The greens here are going to get faster," said South Korean golfer Hee-Won Han, who shot a 4-under-par 68. "There's lots of undulations in these greens with two and three tiers. It's pretty narrow and the greens are pretty fast."

l HONOURING THE BEST: The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame welcomed a new member last night when an inducation ceremony was held for Lisa (Young) Walters at the Hunt Club. Legendary Canadian golfers Dawn Coe-Jones and Nancy Scranton spoke during the ceremony.

l STAYING AWARE: Lorena Ochoa, the first round leader after shooting a 6-under-par 66, said she doesn't do a lot of scoreboard watching. She teed off late in the day, but wasn't worried about the 5-under-par 67 that Sorenstam had put up during the morning round. "I like to see where I am. I like to check the board," said Ochoa. "It's not good to worry because we're just starting the tournament and other players are out of your control. I always try to concentrate on my own game and that's it."
