Neumann Takes One-Stroke Lead

FRIDAY, JAN. 12, 1996

Liselotte Neumann, unable to practice until recently because of the winter weather in Sweden, shot a 5-under-par 67 to take a one-stroke lead after one round of the LPGA’s season-opening Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Fla.

Martha Nause was at 68, with Hall of Famer Betsy King and Missie McGeorge at 69 and Patty Sheehan and Barb Thomas at 70.

Larry Nelson shot a 7-under-par 65 at Tucson National to grab a one-shot lead in the Nortel Open in Tucson, Ariz.

John Morse, Manny Zerman and Joel Edwards shot 67s to stay within two shots.
