NESHANIC STATION, N.J. - Leilanie Kim, who will be a sophomore at the University of Idaho this fall, is tied for 94th after the opening round of the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship at Neshanic Valley (N.J.) Golf Course.

Kim fired a five-over 77 during her opening round - the first of two stroke-play rounds in the annual tournament. She needs to be in the top 64 to advance to the match play phase of the event.

While she is tied for 94th, the good news is she is just three strokes back of a group tied at 74, which encompasses the low 64 scores of the day.

Kim, who is from Surrey, British Columbia, had one birdie and six bogeys during Monday's play. She opened with a bogey on the 369-yard, par-four first before four successive birdies. She bogeyed again at seven before notching her lone birdie of the round - a three on the 290-yard, par-4 seventh. After making the turn at one over, she concluded with bogeys at 12, 13, 15 and 18 for her 77.
