Song-Hee Kim has shot a 7-under 65 to take the early first-round lead at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Thursday. Kim is trying to become the ninth South Korean to win this season on the U.S. LPGA Tour. Kim had six birdies on the first 10 holes at Guadalajara Country Club - she also birdied the last - as she looks for her first career victory. Fellow Korean Jiyai Shin, who is attempting to win rookie of the year, player of the year and the money title, was 3 under after 8 holes. Lorena Ochoa was 1 under after seven. Ochoa is contending for her fourth straight player of the year award.
