Defending champion Lorena Ochoa is two shots back after the first round of the LPGA
Tour Sybase Classic, while Sarah Lee leads

Lee shot a bogey-free 6-under-par 66 at the par-72, 6,433-yard Upper Montclair
Country Club in Clifton, N.J., Thursday to go two up on world No. 1 women\'s golfer
Ochoa and four others: Se Ri Pak, Brittany Lincicome, rookie Angela Park and Hye
Jung Choi.

Ochoa, who had seven birdies, a bogey and a double bogey, has not won since
supplanting Annika Sorenstam atop the Rolex Rankings in April.

\"I\'ve been close in the last few weeks, and this will be a nice week,\" she told
reporters. \"It\'s important to be in a good position and to give myself a chance on
Sunday and hopefully it will happen.\"

Ochoa looked well on her way to taking the lead going into the par-3 eighth hole at
5-under, but an errant tee shot on No. 17 and a surging Lee prevented her ascent
atop the leader board.

Lee played well all day, making several long birdies and finishing with a
nine-footer on the par-5 18th. This comes after a strong third-place finish at last
week\'s Michelob Ultra Open at Kingsmill, where her opening-round 63 and 36-hole
total of 131 were tour season lows.
