Daniel Gill (Commonwealth) has been shot to the top of the boys' leader board after firing an incredible 5-under-67 on the 13th Beach-Creek course in round 1 this morning.
Gill's round included 6 birdies and an eagle on the par five 7th hole.
Just behind on 4-under-par are Harrison Burner (Glenelg – SA) and Tom Ryan (Cranbourne).
In the girls' section Piper Stubbs (Huntingdale) and Min-A Yoon (Korea) are stuck for the lead at 3-under-par.
It was a very impressive effort from Stubbs, as she came back early in Melbourne this morning after returning from the competition in New Zealand.
