South Korea’s Gee Chun leads the Women’s PGA Championship after the first round Thursday by five shots. That ties the record for the most after the first round at a women’s major with Mickey Wright, who also led the Women’s PGA Championship by five after the first round in 1961.

Chun shot an 8-under 64 at Congressional Country Club in Maryland, ahead of fellow South Korean Hye-Jin Choi and Pornanong Phatlum of Thailand, who are tied in second.
