Moodie shoots 64 to take Navistar LPGA Classic

PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Scotland's Janice Moodie shot a bogey-free 8-under 64 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead over 14-year-old Alexis Thompson in the Navistar LPGA Classic, with Michelle Wie and top-ranked Lorena Ochoa two strokes back.

Moodie, a two-time winner on the LPGA Tour, played her final nine holes - the front nine on The Senator course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's Capitol Hill complex, in 6-under 30. She birdied her final four holes and six of her last seven.

Thompson had eight birdies and a bogey. She tied for 34th in July in the U.S. Women's Open. Wie eagled the par-5 fifth and had five birdies and a bogey.

Karine Icher also opened with a 66.
