Top-ranked Lorena Ochoa birdied two of the final three holes for a 4-under 68 and a share of the first-round lead Thursday in the HSBC Champions.

Cristie Kerr, Angela Stanford and Hee Young Park also shot 68s. Kerr birdied five of the last six holes on Tanah Merah's Garden Course, Stanford had a bogey-free round, and Park overcame three bogeys with seven birdies.

Ochoa won the 2008 tournament by 11 strokes, finishing at 20-under 268.

Ai Miyazato, the winner Sunday in the season-opening LPGA Thailand, was a stroke back along with Sophie Gustafson, Christina Kim and Song-Hee Kim.

Defending champion Jiyai Shin opened with a 71, and Michelle Wie had a 72.
