"I played actually pretty good," Kerr said. "I had a little bit of the case of the rights off the tee (but) hit a couple of irons to the right, so I have something to work on. The greens are very soft."

Also at the top are Ai Miyazato, Jeong Jang, Inbee Park, Song-Hee Kim, Soo-Yun Kang and Jimin Jeong.

Jang, the 2006 champion, broke into red figures with a nine-foot birdie putt at the fourth hole.

Defending champion and world No. 1 Lorena Ochoa was one of 19 players to shoot even-par 72, while Michelle Wie joined 14 others in a tie for 21st place at 1-under 71.
