Lisa Schlesinger leads USGA Senior Women’s Am

OOLTEWAH, Tenn. (AP) — Lisa Schlesinger topped the USGA Senior Women’s Amateur leaderboard at 5 under with two holes left when play was suspended because of darkness Saturday in the first round of stroke-play qualifying.

The 53-year-old Schlesinger is from Laytonsville, Md.

Mary Ann Hayward was the leader in the clubhouse after a 2-under 70 on the Honors Course. The 51-year-old Canadian is coming off a victory two weeks ago in the Canadian Senior Women’s Amateur.

The top 64 after the second round Sunday will advance to match play.
