Amy Yang shot a 6-under 66 to take a one-stroke lead over Lindsey Wright in Thursday's opening round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Yani Tseng was third at 68, ending the world's top-ranked player's streak of eight consecutive rounds with the lead. The five-time major champion has won two straight tournaments and three of five this season, while Yang and Wright have never won on the LPGA Tour.

The 22-year-old Yang made five birdies in seven holes around the turn at Mission Hills, using a steady putting stroke to take the early lead in the first major of the year. Wright had five birdies on her back nine.

Michelle Wie opened with a 73, and defending champion Stacy Lewis had four consecutive bogeys in a 74.
