12:37 PM ET 04.05 | On a day where Rolex number one, Stacy Lewis, struggled, Suzann Pettersen was able to seize a share of the lead at The Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills. The eighth ranked Pettersen fired a bogey-free four-under par 68 in the first round of the year's first major for the LPGA, and shares the overnight lead with Na Yeon Choi, and Jodi Ewart Shadoff. Choi is the third-ranked player in the Rolex list, and Shadoff is ranked 110th. Choi went bogey free on the Dinah Shore Tournament Course at Rancho Mirage, but Shadoff had a little rougher day. She had to overcome two bogeys en route to her 68 score. Despite the hot weather conditions projected for the week, Pettersen says Mission Hills Country Club is in a perfectly difficult condition for golf's first major of 2013.

From the writing at Pro Golf Now it seems they expect that being ranked number 1 on the LPGA tour means you'll automatically win the tournament. Seems like they're going out of their way to stick it to Stacy Lewis. Wonder if they've got some sort of axe to grind.
