KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) Katie Burnett chipped in for birdie on the par-4 18th Friday for a 5-under 67 and a one-stroke lead in the Lotte Championship.

Su-Yeon Jang was second after a 67. The 21-year-old South Korean player earned a sponsor exemption with a victory last week in the Korean LPGA event sponsored by Lotte

U.S. Women's Open champion In Gee Chun and Moriya Jutanugarn were 10 under. Chun had a 65, and Jutanugarn shot 68.
