No. 1-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn's 10-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole gave her a 4-under 68 and a five-way share of the first-round lead at the HSBC Women's World Championship on Thursday.

Her closest challenger through the day was world No. 1 Ariya Jutanugarn.

"I hit a really nice, high shot, so it would come in soft and it just ended up being flawless".

It was nothing flashy from Lydia Ko but a consistent second round kept her in contention for the major spoils halfway through the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore on Friday. That happened at the The Evian Championship a year ago when she three-putted for a double-bogey on the final hole to lose by one stroke.

"Today I was hitting it really well, so I like to go for it on those kinds of days", said Olson after her 3-under-par 69.

World number two Park Song-Hyun of South Korea had been with the leaders until a bogey five on the last saw her slip back into second on three-under for the day with six other players.

Lee, 22, has managed several birdie blitzes of her own on the course this week.

Jutanugarn had a three-round total of 11-under 205. The feeling is that if it all falls into place for Lee come Sunday, there just might be fireworks. "So I feel like I'm striking it pretty solid and my putting is pretty solid, too".

A shot further back at nine-under 207 is England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff, who is aiming for a maiden Tour victory. 'The greens are really firm and it was a little windy, so it's tougher conditions than the previous years we have played in Sentosa, said the 30-year-old.

"I was so ready to be pain-free that I ignored a couple of warning signs late last week", said Wie. "[I'll] just stay in the moment and not get ahead of myself". "I hit tee shots pretty good and iron was good". I experienced it recently, so hopefully I can take that experience into tomorrow.

The 29-year-old Wie played in last week's LPGA Thailand tournament, where she finished tied for 23rd.

It left her level with Spain's Azahara Munoz (69) and the Korean pair of Kim Hyo-Joo (67) and Ko Jin-Young (66).
