Chonburi, Thailand (SportsNetwork.com) - Anna Nordqvist fired a 6-under 66 on Thursday to claim a 1-stroke lead after the first round of the Honda LPGA Thailand.

Nordqvist is seeking her third career win on the LPGA Tour and first since the 2009 LPGA Tour Championship.

Michelle Wie carded a 5-under 67 on the Pattaya Old Course at Siam Country Club to sit alone in second place, while Lexi Thompson, Jennifer Johnson and Angela Stanford shared third at 4-under 68.

World No. 1 and defending champion Inbee Park shot a 1-under 71 in her 2014 debut to sit among a group of 11 players tied for 14th. Also among that group is Stacy Lewis and ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open winner Karrie Webb.
