Former World No 1 Karrie Webb was the among the six who shared the lead after round one of the ANZ RACV Ladies Masters.

Former World No 1 Karrie Webb was the among the six who shared the lead after Thursday’s first round of the ANZ RACV Ladies Masters in Queensland.
She opened with a 6-under 66 to be tied on top of the leaderboard with fellow Australian Karen Lunn, Spain’s Maria Hernandez, Italy’s Diana Luna, France’s Cassandra Kirkland and Korea’s Eun-Hee Ji.
It was a particularly crowded leaderboard at Royal Pines Resort for the second event on the 2011 Ladies European Tour schedule, with seven players a shot off the pace and another 14 a further stroke back.
Lunn carded six birdies and no bogeys in a flawless round, going to the turn in 32 and picking up another shot on the 10th.
Compatriot Webb also went out in 32, five under par, but carded two bogeys and three birdies on the back nine.
England’s Melissa Reid, second in the season opener in Melbourne last week, continued her impressive early form with a round of 67.
And the 23-year-old would have shared the lead but for dropping her only shot of the day on the par-four 18th.
Ninety seven of the 138-strong field finished level par or better, but Scotland’s Carly Booth slumped to an 82 to lie dead last.
