February 21, 1986|United Press International

PHOENIX — Juli Inkster shot a five-under-par 67 Thursday to take the first-round lead in the $250,000 Standard Register-Samaritan Turquoise golf tournament at the Arizona Biltmore Adobe Course.

Inkster held a one-shot lead over Rosie Jones, Sherri Turner, Mary Beth Zimmerman, Shelley Hamlin and rookie Michelle Berteotti.

Inkster's round was highlighted by an eagle at the par-five 15th hole, where she hit a 5-wood approach shot within 12 feet of the pin and sank the putt.

Inkster had made pars on the first seven holes before posting birdies on the 8th and 9th holes.
