BEIJING (AP) Ariya Jutanugarn birdied the final four holes for an 8-under 65 and a one-stroke lead over Brooke Henderson on Thursday in the Reignwood LPGA Classic.

In position to take player of the year lead from idle Lydia Ko with a ninth-place finish or better, Jutanugarn had 10 birdies and two bogeys at Reignwood Pine Valley in the first of six events in the Asian Swing.

"All the players really want to win the award like player of the year," Jutanugarn said. "I really want to, but right now I think I'm not really worry I'm going to win. I think I just have to be like, `Just keep play like this and have fun on the course.'"
