Tournament host Ochoa shot a 71 and was tied for 13th.

Kim was already 2-under for her round when she began her birdie streak at the seventh. She closed with another birdie at the par-5 18th.

"I was very relaxed because I just came from Korea," Kim said. "I am still very tired from the time change, so I'm trying to not play too hard. I just want to play easy."

Michelle Wie was among those who shot a 69 Thursday. Defending champion Angela Stanford had a 73.
