Laura Davies played so well she could have shot a 59. Rosie Jones putted so well she wound up with the lead after the first round of the LPGA Championship at Wilmington, Del. "I've got a pretty good flat stick," Jones said Thursday after a seven-under-par 64, good for her best start in a major championship and a one-stroke lead over Davies. On a warm, breezy day in which 48 players broke par, Jones proved once again that the shortest club in the bag can be more valuable than a 292-yard drive.
