England's Charley Hull is one shot off the lead after the opening round of the Mediheal Championship in California.
The 22-year-old carded a three-under-par 69 on Thursday for a share of sixth place at Lake Merced Golf Club.
New Zealand's former world number one Lydia Ko, Sweden's Caroline Hedwall, South Korean Kim In-kyung, American Jessica Korda and Australia's Su Oh are all tied for the lead at four under.
"It's a golf course where nobody goes super low," said Ko, 21.
"You just have to keep continuing to play solid and be patient out there and sometimes par is not a bad score."
