WOBURN, England (AP) Mirim Lee shot a 10-under 62 on Thursday to match the Women's British Open record and open a three-stroke lead in the major championship at tree-lined Woburn Golf Club.

Three weeks after shooting a 64 in the first round of the U.S. Women's Open, the 25-year-old South Korean player made the last of her 10 birdies on the par-3 17th and closed with a par.

Lee fell a stroke short of the LPGA Tour major record of 61 set by Hyo Joo Kim in the first round of the 2014 Evian Championship. Minea Blomqvist shot a 62 in the third round of the 2004 Women's British Open at Sunningdale, and Lorena Ochoa had a 62 in first round of the 2006 Kraft Nabisco. Lee also matched her official LPGA Tour career low set in the second round of the 2014 LPGA Taiwan.
