"There are a lot of good American golfers out here. There is so much competition," she said. "It doesn't matter where you're from; it matters how well you bring it out on the golf course."

No one questions how well Park has played. She'll go for an unprecedented fourth consecutive women's major in the same year when she heads for the Women's British Open late this month.

She's already won six times on the tour this year while ascending to No. 1. Naturally, galleries expect her to win every time out.

"I do feel more pressure coming into this tournament," she said after a 67 that left her tied with Haeji Kang, Jacqui Concolino, Gerina Piller and Karine Icher. "But I try to enjoy it. I enjoy the fans coming out to watch."

Defending champ So Yeon Ryu had a 68 along with a large group that included Morgan Pressel and Natalie Gulbis. Se Ri Pak, a five-time winner of the tournament, opened with a 69 — the same as the world's top-ranked amateur, Lydia Ko.

The course is built for low scores. Over the last six years, the winners are a combined 103 under par.

"I know there are some very good scores out there," said Ko, who appears a lock to run her streak of professional cuts made to a perfect 22 for 22. "I've just got to play my game. I can't control what the others do."
