KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) South Korea's Ha Na Jang used a late three-hole birdie run to take a one-stroke lead Friday in the LPGA Malaysia.

The 23-year-old Jang shot a bogey-free 6-under 65 to reach 10-under 132 at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. She made a downhill 10-footer on the par-4 14th, holed a right-to-left curler from 15 feet on the par-3 15th and ran in a 12-footer on the par-5 16th.

"I think today's really good round because no bogeys," said Jang, a two-time winner this year on the Korea LPGA. "Just six birdies straight. I think it's two weeks since I won Korea tournament, so it's a little bit more confident. No pressure today. It's like a little more simple. It's a really good round today."
