NAPLES, Florida - Norway's Suzann Pettersen birdied the final hole to join South Koreans So Yeon Ryu and Sun Young Yoo atop the first round leaderboard at the LPGA's season-ending Titleholders event.

Pettersen, winner of back-to-back LPGA titles in Asia last month, had six birdies and no bogeys in her six-under 66 at TwinEagles.

Yoo got as low as nine-under, but closed her round with a double-bogey and a bogey to fall into a tie for the lead in the $1.5 million tournament.

Ryu, who has already locked up Rookie of the Year honours, had seven birdies and just one bogey for her share of the lead.

The top trio were one stroke in front of a quartet of players on 67 which included Australian Lindsey Wright. Fellow Aussie Karrie Webb was a further two strokes back, while player of the year Stacy Lewis, who needs a victory to have a shot at capturing the LPGA money title, settled for a 70.
