Wales's Becky Morgan birdied her last three holes for a share of the first-round lead at the World Ladies Championship in China.

Morgan, 40, carded a four-under 69.

After reaching the turn in two under, Morgan dropped a shot at the 15th but finished with a run of birdies for a two-shot joint lead with world number two Inbee Park.

"We got lucky with the draw," said Morgan. "It was a little windy at first but it died down towards the end."

China's Xi Yu Lin is one of four players currently tied for third place.

England's Trish Johnson is three shots off the lead after an opening 72.
