CAMBRIDGE, Ontario (AP) Suzann Pettersen took a one-stroke lead Saturday in the Manulife LPGA Classic, making an eagle and four birdies on the first 11 holes and closing with seven pars for a 6-under 66.

Pettersen had a 19-under 197 total at Whistle Bear Golf Club. Bothered by a shoulder injury this season, the 34-year-old Norwegian player won the last of her 14 LPGA Tour titles in 2013.

Colombia's Mariajo Uribe was second after a 67. Cristie Kerr was third at 17 under, also after a 67. She won the Kia Classic in California in March for her 17th LPGA Tour title.

Second-ranked Inbee Park, the winner last year at Grey Silo in Waterloo, had a 70 to reach 9 under. Top-ranked Lydia Ko also was tied for 32nd at 9 under after a 68.
