Felicity Johnson from England does not make a secret of her love for Australia.
She is also a proud member of the Ladies European Tour.
If her opening round of the ISPS Handa Vic Open is a guideline today, she can quickly find herself in North America.
The happy Johnson, who was twice the Australian PGA winner in regional Victoria in recent weeks, is not someone who brags, and does not lift the merits of her opponents.
So you know she must have had the ball tied to get this review of her bogey-free course record 64 on the Creek Course.
"Every time you take eight shots, it's okay, Bogey Free is a bonus," Johnson said.
"I will sound a bit stubborn, but it was really easy.
"I hit 17 greens in regulation, birdied three of the par-5's, so there are a few of those almost fake birdies.
"And for me when I roll the ball on the greens, I score a good score and that's what I did today."
Golf was only so easy for ordinary mortals.
But Johnson, as practical as cheerful, quickly pointed out that her history around the 13th beach is not glorious.
"Frankly, I've played pretty nonsense on both (the jobs here) earlier, so it's a shock to shoot eight of them," said the woman who everyone was known as "Flic."
"The Creek played pretty well today, the wind did not really rise, and after a bit of rain at night, the greens held steady, they ran pretty well.
"Hopefully the beach will treat me kindly tomorrow."
Her score late in the day overshadowed the old leader Su Oh, while the Canadian Anne-Catherine Tanguay and the American Kim Kaufman later arrived at the Melburnian at six o'clock under par.
Oh was the instigator of the low scores with a spectacular hole-in-one with a six-iron of 149 m on the Creek Course 15th hole, the sixth of her round.
Of the favorites of the pre-tournament, Georgia Hall finished at three lower, while Minjee Lee was one, both on the Creek Course.
On the Beach Course, Harun Nomura, winner of Women & # 39; s Australian Open, let herself down to close at five o'clock, while a large group of four includes the soaring Australian pro Karis Davidson and her amateur countryman Steph Kyriacou .
Similar to the men, an extraordinary 76 women ended up on an under or better with Karrie Webb, Paula Creamer and Charley Hull under different big names on par.
