United States veteran Cristie Kerr shot a bogey-free six-under-par 66 in tough conditions to take a three-stroke lead.

The 39-year-old from Miami said afterwards that she enjoyed the mental challenge of playing in 18-20 mile per hour winds.

Fellow United States veteran Stacy Lewis returned a three-under-par 69, after four birdies and a dropped shot at the seventh hole.

Six players were in the clubhouse on one-under. They included European Solheim Cup rankings leader Georgia Hall, who had her father Wayne on her bag.
