Trio take New Zealand lead
Last updated: 8th February 2013
Australians Nikki Campbell, Sarah Oh and Tamara Johns lead the ISPS Handa New Zealand Women's Open on three under par.
The trio is one shot in front of pre-tournament favourite Lydia Ko, as well as Nontaya Srisawang and Alison Walshe.
Expectations on Ko are high after she won the Canadian Open last year, merely a month after winning the US Women's Amateur Championship.
Srisawang was also tied for the lead on three-under, but dropped a shot on the final hole to move back into a tie for fourth.
On a day that saw only 10 players broke par, Campbell started a round with a birdie at the par-five 10th, but only got into her stride on the back nine when she birdied the 11th, 12th and 13th.
Oh is a former Australian Amateur Champion and has played in Korea regularly after turning pro in 2007, while the 33-year-old Johns regularly starred on the secondary European Tours for most of last year after returning from retirement.
