Minjee recovers from 'brain fart'

Minjee Lee
Minjee Lee is all smiles again after her rough finish at Kingsmill.

Minjee Lee has broken her silence on the reason behind her disqualification from last week's Kingsmill Championship - but it's not what you might have suspected.

So was it technical? Was she upset? Did someone distract her?

"I think I just had a brain fart," Lee said with a grin today after her opening round at the Volvik Championship, five days after a top-10 finish went begging when she failed to sign her final round in Virginia.

"I mean I don’t know how I missed it, but obviously I did and I got DQ’d.

"But it’s OK, I can laugh about it now."

The West Australia began the Volvik still in sharp form, firing a four-under-par 68 in Michigan to sit tied ninth, three off the pace of Stacy Lewis and Wei-Ling Hsu.

But the best Australian score of the day belonged, again, to Queenslander Sarah Jane Smith, whose 67 left her in a share of fourth.

Victorian Su Oh fired a 70 to be handy, while Queenslander Katherine Kirk sits at even par.

Sarah Kemp, of New South Wales, and Queensland's Karrie Webb fired rounds of 74 and 75, respectively.
