She only missed hitting the green on No. 12.

"I played my practice round at the Kingsmill Golf Resort and it is picturesque and the course is in great shape". From a competitive standpoint, she hasn't yet returned to earth.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - Lexi Thompson had six birdies in a seven-hole stretch and finished with a 6-under 65 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the Kingsmill Championship.

"I played very well", she said. "I had a pretty fantastic front-row seat for it". I was either just making it to the field or not making it. "I was struggling with my yardages a bit".

"The second nine was pretty insane", said Thompson, who arrived on the first tee for Wednesday s pro-am by parachuting out of an airplane. "I hit some great shots and rolled a few good putts, so definitely helps out my confidence".

Thompson's challenge continues through Veterans Day, during which time she will wear a commemorative pin during tournament play. She added, "Supporting the SEAL Legacy Foundation is my No. 1, and just the military in general. Check out this awesome footage of my jump", Thompson wrote on social media. There's nothing like it. Words can't describe the feeling.

Exhilaration notwithstanding, she said, she has no plans "as of now" to do it again. "And the more I get into tournament mode, I feel that will help me get back into a good rhythm", Aditi said.

"No - not at all", she said. "I am just going to try and give myself as many opportunities and I can".

Three players - Gerina Piller, Brittany Lincicome and teenager Angel Yin, all from the United States, posted first-round scores of 5 under.

Thompson began her round on the back nine and was even at the halfway mark. Thompson finished with a 6-under. She won the season-opening event in the Bahamas.
