NAPLES, Fla., Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Suzann Pettersen, Ryu So-yeon and Yoo Sun-young all shot 6-under-par 66 Thursday and are tied for the lead at the LPGA's CME Group Titleholders tournament.

Yoo had nine birdies while Ryu had seven and Pettersen shot a bogey-free round in earning shares of first place.

Choi No-yeon, Karine Icher, Cristie Kerr and Lindsey Wright are tied for fourth, one stroke behind the leaders, with four more players at 4-under and another four at 3-under.

Pettersen had the most consistent round Thursday. She was 2-under after 11 holes and then had back-to-back birdies at 12 and 13 and birdies at 16 and 18 for her 6-under round.

Ryu's lone bogey came at the par-4 10th and she had four birdies the rest of the way, including at 13 and 14 -- both par 5s -- and 18.

Yoo was 3-under after seven holes but gave back all those strokes with a double bogey 5 at the 8th hole and a bogey at No. 9. She opened her second nine with a birdie before running off three straight birdies over Nos. 12-14. Like Pettersen, she had birdies at 16 and 18.
