The 54-hole strokeplay tournament is under way at RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast in Queensland from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd February. The players – including 13 of last year’s LET tournament champions and 12 rookies making their tour debuts – are relishing the start of the new season.

American Alison Walshe sits atop of the leaderboard after the opening round of the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters being played at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast. The 27-year-old holds a slender one shot advantage of fellow compatriot Jessica Korda, who was at the top of the leaderboard for the majority of the day after teeing off early.

Australian Stacey Keating, Spain’s Belen Mozo, Thailand’s Nontaya Srisawang and American Dori Carter are at four-under-par, while South Korean Chella Choi, Sweden’s Daniela Holmqvist and rookie Ariya Jutanugarn from Thailand share seventh position a further shot back. Defending champion Christel Boeljon opened with a one-over-par 73 to be tied for 47th position. Other notables in the field include Rolex World No. 7 So Yeon Ryu and South Korean Jiyai Shin, both shot 71, while three time winner of the event, England’s Laura Davies posted a 76. Cheyenne Woods carded a 74. The cut will be made to the top 50 professionals and ties after the second round.
