Mi Jung Hur continued to build on her success last week at the Swinging Skirts Classic by shooting a 5-under 66 to take the first-round lead by one stroke at the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout.

The South Korean Hur is atop a leaderboard that is packed with six of her fellow countrywomen at T-5 or better.

Hur earned herself her first top-10 finish of the season last week at Swinging Skirts with a T-6 finish.

South Koreans Eun Hee Ji and So Yeon Ryu are tied with American Gerina Piller at 4 under.

Amy Yang, Sei Young Kim and Jenny Shin are tied with Catriona Matthew for fifth at 3 under.

Hur is looking for her first win since the 2014 Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic. She has three top-15 finishes this year despite getting into the top 10 for the first time last week.

Hur made five straight birdies before making the turn, and finished her round with 27 putts.

“My putting just was everything on the course today,” said Hur. “My shot wasn’t that good and my address wasn’t that comfortable but my putting did really well. So it helps me really a lot so that’s why I had five straight birdies and finished strong.”

In her LPGA debut, Cheyenne Knight posted a first-round 1 under to sit in a tie for 18th.
