PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) -- Na Yeon Choi shot a 7-under 66 to take a one-stroke lead in the season-opening Bahamas Classic, chipping to a foot to set up a birdie on the par-5 18th hole on Saturday.

The seventh-ranked Choi, a seven-time winner on the U.S. LPGA Tour, birdied three of the last four holes in her bogey-free round to reach 15 under on Atlantis Resort's Ocean Club course.

Lizette Salas was a stroke back. She also had a bogey-free 66.

Jessica Korda and Paula Creamer each eagled the 18th to reach 12 under. Korda, the second-round leader, had a 72, and Creamer shot 71. Creamer also eagled the par-5 11th, but had a triple-bogey 8 on No. 15.

Third-ranked Stacy Lewis was tied for fourth at 11 under with Amelia Lewis and Jenny Suh. Stacy Lewis had a 68, Amelia Lewis shot 66, and Suh had a 71.

Michelle Wie and 16-year-old Lydia Ko were in the group at 10 under. Wie followed her second-round 65 with a 72. Ko, making her first start as a U.S. LPGA Tour member, had a 71.
