"It's a tough golf course," Maguire said.
"You really have to hit a lot of fairways, a lot of greens. I've been playing nice as of late. Things just haven't been quite clicking, and they clicked nicely this morning."
Jasmine Suwannapura of Thailand produced her eighth birdie of the day at her last hole to card a 66, and close within one shot of Maguire. Albane Valenzuela from Switzerland was another stroke back alongside American Alison Lee.
Multiple major winner Inbee Park was four strokes back on three-under alongside Jennifer Kupcho, Da Yeon Lee, Mariajo Uribe, Jane Park and Lauren Kim.
Lexi Thompson shrugged off the disappointment of her collapse in the U.S. Women's Open at nearby Olympic Club with a one-under 71.
Charley Hull is the best of the Brits after round one, following her one-over round of 73. Bronte Law and Jodi Ewart Shadoff are a further shot back but Georgia Hall had a disappointing five-over 77.
