KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA (AP) - Japan’s Mika Miyazato and South Korea’s Jee Young Lee each shot 5-under 66 Friday to lead after the first round of the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia event at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club.

South Korea’s Hee-Won Han was a shot back at the tournament, which had a 3-hour delay because of lightning.

Michelle Wie of the United States shot 68. She had four birdies and bogeyed the 15th hole after a three-putt. Suzann Pettersen had a 69, while Christina Kim, Natalie Gulbis and Katherine Hull each shot 70. Juli Inkster trailed the leaders by five strokes. Cristie Kerr finished with a 72.

Miyazato had five birdies in a bogey-free round. Lee had seven birdies but bogeyed the third and 11th holes.
