MONTREAL: Ai Miyazato and Pernilla Lindberg fired seven-under 65s on soggy greens to share the lead in the Canadian Women’s Open, with crowd favourite Samantha Richdale of Canada a shot back. Defending champion Michelle Wie was two shots adrift after shooting a five-under 67 at the Hillsdale Gold Club course just outside of Montreal. Richdale opened with a 66 and another stroke back was Angela Stanford, Jenny Shin and South Korea’s Kim Mi-hyun. “I did have expectations coming into this season but there was the earthquake and it had a bit of affect on me on and off the golf course,” said Miyazato who won five titles in 2010.
