MOBILE, Ala., Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Part-time model Anna Rawson shot a 5-under 67 Thursday to share the lead after the opening round of the inaugural Bell Micro LPGA Classic at Mobile, Ala.

Rawson was tied with Shanshan Feng, one shot in front of Nicole Castrale, Angela Park, Michelle Ellis and Irene Cho.

The event is being played at the Magnolia Grove course on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Last year, the course hosted the LPGA Tournament of Champions, won by Paula Creamer.

Creamer shot a 78 Thursday and was tied for 117th place.

Despite her budding career as a fashion model, Rawson said her No. 1 goal is to excel in golf.

"I love competing," she said. "It's fun to see how good you can do and how low you can shoot."
