Teenager Sakura Yokomine bounced back from a missed cut to make a flying start Friday, shooting a 6-under-par 66 to take the early lead at the Resort Trust Ladies.

Yokomine made six birdies in an eight-hole stretch at Grandee Nasu Shirakawa Gold Club on her way to a one-shot lead over defending champion Hiromi Mogi, South Korea’s Jeon Mi Jeong, Saiki Fujita and Yukari Baba.
