Sylvania, OH (Sports Network) - Alison Walshe carded a career-low, 6-under-par 65 on Thursday and grabbed a 1-stroke, first-round lead at the Marathon Classic.

Walshe mixed eight birdies with a pair of bogeys at Highland Meadows Golf Club to end the opening round a shot ahead of Paula Creamer, Lexi Thompson and Jessica Shepley.

World No. 1 Inbee Park, who has six LPGA Tour victories this season, is two strokes off Walshe's pace at 4-under 67. She is tied for fifth place with Karine Icher, Haeji Kang, Gerina Piller and Jacqui Concolino.
