Sierra Brooks and Kristen Gillman have a one-shot lead at the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship after shooting 7-under 65 in Saturday’s opening round at Bowling Green, Fla.

It’s the third time the 17-year-olds have partnered and they have yet to lose a match.

"We are very similar and we think alike on the golf course," Gillman told USGA.com. "The most fun is just being able to have a partner. This is so different than what we usually do."
