In March Alice Hewson won her first Ladies European Tour event with victory at the South African Open
The English Alice Hewson has the night lead after day one of the three-day finale of the Rose Ladies Series.
Hewson, 22, shot a four under 67 to finish four clear rounds Whitney Hillier and Sian Evans in the North Hants club.
English couple Georgia Hall, who won the previous two events, and Charley Hull both finished two in Hampshire.
The series is organized by men's professional Justin Rose, his wife Kate and European Tour player Liz Young.
It was set to provide competitive action to female professionals after the Ladies European Tour was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The three-day grand finale follows seven one-day tournaments in June and July in England.
