DAYTONA BEACH -- Allyssa Ferrell did not enjoy the start she wanted on Day 1 of the final stage of LPGA Tour Qualifying School. That was the bad news.

The good news? Neither did a lot of golfers in the 165-player field.

Only 29 of them broke par in the opening round on two courses at LPGA International. Ferrell, an Edgerton native who had conditional status on the LPGA Tour in 2017, made 13 pars and five bogeys in a 5-over-par 77 on the Jones Course that left her tied for 133rd place, but just nine shots out of first.

Sherman Santiwiwatthanaphong of Thailand, Nasa Hataoka of Japan, Hyemin Kim of South Korea, Anne Van Dam of The Netherlands and Gabriella Then of the United States shared the lead with opening 68s. Australia's Rebecca Artis, Paula Reto of South Africa and American Lauren Kim were one shot back.

Ferrell started on No. 1 and bogeyed her second hole before rattling off nine straight pars. She bogeyed three of four holes starting at No. 11 and added another bogey at the par-4 16th hole in a round void of any birdies.

The top 20 finishers earn full status on the LPGA Tour in 2018. Those who finish 21st through 45th plus ties receive conditional status.

After 18 holes, golfers at 1-over or better are inside the top 45. With 29 golfers at that number, it is also the benchmark for the top 70 plus ties, which is the what the field will be cut to following the fourth round Saturday.
