Meghan MacLaren and Whitney Hillier carded impressive matching rounds of 67 to share the lead after the opening round of the Hero Women’s Indian Open.
Briton MacLaren, who was in the first group out on the Gary Player Course at DLF Golf and Country Club, recorded eight birdies and three bogeys while Australian Hillier fired just five birdies but was bogey-free.
“I made a lot of birdies out there and felt really comfortable,” MacLaren said.
“I thought I was going to have a pretty low score but did a couple of stupid things. I can’t complain with where I am after round one.
“Conditions were perfect, actually.
“It’s not nice getting up at four o’clock or whatever, but whenever you’re first out and you’ve got an empty course in front of you and really, really pure greens at that time of day it was nice to take advantage of that.”
England’s Liz Young and Norway’s Marianne Skarpnord are a shot off the lead with Europe’s victorious Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew three off the pace following a 70.
