EVIAN-LES-BAINS, FRANCE (AP) - Sun-Ju Ahn of South Korea birdied the final hole for a 6-under 66 and a share of the first-round lead at the Evian Masters with Morgan Pressel and Melissa Reid.

Pressel started Thursday’s first round with birdies on the opening three holes, but the American bogeyed No. 13.

Reid had two bogeys before sinking a birdie putt on the final hole _ her eighth birdie of the day _ to stay in contention.

Song-Hee Kim and M.J. Hur of South Korea were both a stroke behind the leaders.

Michelle Wie was tied for sixth with a group of other players at 4-under 68. Defending champion Ai Miyazato of Japan was three shots behind the leaders after a 3-under 69.
