Stephanie Meadow dropped three shots in her last four holes to open with a three over 75 in the LPGA Symetra Tour's IOA Championship at Tukwet Canyon Golf Club in California.

The former Curtis Cup star, who failed to get through the LPGA Q-School in December after a year in marked by the loss of her father to cancer, turned in one over after sandwiching a birdie at the fifth between bogeys at the third and seventh.

A birdie three at the 12th left the Jordanstown native at one over par but she bogeyed the par-three 15th and then took a double bogey seven at the 16th to end the day tied for 66th on three over.


Sweden's Madelene Sagstrom shot an eight under par 64 to lead by three shots from Denmark's Therese O'Hara
