LOS ANGELES (AP) - Worn out after two long nights with infant daughter Chesnee, Stacy Lewis shot a 6-under 65 on Thursday for a share of the lead with Hannah Green halfway through the first round of the Hugel-Air Premia LA Open.

The 34-year-old Texan is making her sixth LPGA Tour start since Chesnee's birth in late October. She birdied four of her last six holes in the bogey-free round at Wilshire Country Club.

Green also had a bogey-free round. Fellow Australian Minjee Lee was a stroke back.

Top-ranked Jin Young Ko played the in the afternoon. She's the only player with multiple victories this year, taking the Founders Cup and the major ANA Inspiration. Ko was grouped with Brooke Henderson, the winner last week in Hawaii, and third-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn.
