Australians Hannah Green and Minjee Lee are off to a bright start in the LPGA Tour's Lotte Championship in Hawaii but Nelly Korda may take some catching.

Women's Australian Open winner Korda, 20, fired a bogey-free, nine under 63 opening round at Ko Olina Golf Club as she seeks her third LPGA title of the year.

The American took a one-shot lead from South Korea's Eun-Hee Ji, who birdied six of the last eight holes in her 64, while defending champion Brooke Henderson and Hyejin Choi were a further shot back.

Green holed out for eagle from inside 100 metres on the third hole on the way to a 66 which left her tied fifth.

World No.4 Lee, the 2016 Lotte Championship winner, shot a bogey-free 67.

Fellow Aussie Katherine Kirk had a 70
