MIRABEL, Quebec (AP) — Ai Miyazato and Pernilla Lindberg shot 7-under 65s in wet conditions Thursday to share the first-round lead in the Canadian Women's Open, while Michelle Wie was two strokes back in her title defense.

Canadian Samantha Richdale opened with a 66 at Hillsdale Gold Club, and Wie was at 67 along with Angela Stanford, Mi Hyun Kim, Song-Hee Sim and Jenny Shin.

Wie, using a long putter, holed a 60-footer for birdie on the par-5 fifth and closed with a 45-foot birdie putt on her final hole. She won last year at St. Charles in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
