Maria Fassi still hopes to win her first LPGA title. She is now in position to win No. Thanks to a round-opening bogey-free, 8-under-62 performance at the weather-delayed Pelican Women’s Championship at Pelican golf Club in Belleair (Florida), she’s now No.

The 24-year old used seven birdies, including a stretch of three consecutive on Nos. 5-7), and an eagle on the par-5 14th to take a two shot lead over Lexi Thompson.

Two solo thirds at the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational, July, and one at the Kroger Queen City Championship, September are Fassi’s top finishes of the season. Last week, Fassi finished in solo 70th at the Toto Japan Classic.

Thompson’s round was not perfect. She bogeyed par-4 second. However, like Fassi, Thompson had an eagle at par-5 seventh.

Lizette Salas is part a pack of 5 under while Jennifer Kupcho opened Pelican with an 1-under 69.

Due to Hurricane Nicole’s impact, the event was reduced to 54 holes.
