DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Jaye Marie Green shot a course-record 10-under 62 on Wednesday to take the first-round lead in the LPGA Tour's qualifying tournament.

The 19-year-old Green, from Boca Raton, had 11 birdies and a bogey on LPGA International's Jones Course. She was 29th on the Symetra Tour money list this year.

''It hasn't sunk in yet,'' Green said. ''You know how people say, `if I just made putts I would have shot this?' Well it was just one of those days that the putts went in and I did shoot it. It was cool. The putting was just on point.''

South Korea's Seon Hwa Lee, a four-time winner on the LPGA Tour, and Tiffany Joh were tied for second at 66. They also opened the 90-hole event on the Jones Course.

The top 20 players after the final round Sunday will earn Category 12 status, Nos. 21-45 and ties will receive membership in Category 17, and the other players who make the 72-hole cut will get Symetra Tour status.

Megan Grehan and Nicole Jeray were the top players on the Hills Course, shooting 67. Kathleen Ekey, Japan's Haru Nomura and Denmark's Line Vedel shot 67 on the Jones Course.

Amy Anderson, the 21-year-old former North Dakota State star who won the second stage of qualifying, had a 68 on the Jones Course. She won a record 20 college titles.

Lorie Kane, the 48-year-old Canadian who has four LPGA Tour victories, was tied for 48th after a 72 on the Jones Course. South Korea's Birdie Kim, the 2005 U.S. Women's Open champion, was tied for 88th after a 74 on the Jones Course. Cheyenne Woods, Tiger Woods' niece, had a 77 on the Jones Course.
