The Australian trio led three players at 2-under, including the world's No. 1 amateur, 15-year-old Korean-born New Zealander Lydia Ko. American Alison Walshe and Thailand's Nontaya Srisawang were also at 2-under after the first round at the Clearwater Golf Club.
Players in the European and Australasian tours co-sanctioned event coped with windy conditions Friday which hampered low scoring.
"I definitely could have played better, but the scores aren't that crazy low today," Ko said. "That's because of the wind."
