SYLVANIA, Ohio, July 10 (UPI) -- Paula Creamer shot an 11-under 60, one stroke off the LPGA record, to take a five-shot first-round lead Thursday in the Jamie Far Owens Corning Classic in Ohio.

Gloria Park and Eun-Hee Ji shared second place at 65 and Young Kim and Eva Dahllof were at 66.

"Wow, that was unbelievable," Creamer said. "What did we shoot here? Sixty. I didn't know. I didn't realize it."

Creamer said she hadn't realized the Highland Meadows Golf Club course was a par 71, thinking it was 72.

The LPGA record is 59, held by Annika Sorenstam.

Meg Mallon, Anna Acker-Macosko and Jung Yeon Lee have shot 60 on the LPGA Tour.

Creamer had a 27 on the back nine, tying the tour record for nine holes.

Lightning forced suspension of play with 21 players still on the course Thursday.
