CADEN-A-HEAD AFTER ROUND ONE OF CARRUS OPEN

10/10/2019

Oscar Cadenhead has found himself in the lead after the opening round of the Carrus Open at the Tauranga Golf Club.

Teeing off first this morning, Cadenhead made the most of the early calm conditions to shoot six-under par, and be one shot clear at the end of the first day.

Having tee’d off on the 11th, he made the turn at just one-under which included a lone birdie. He quickly fired up on his back nine [front nine at Tauranga Golf Club] and made birdies at the first and second, followed by birdies six, seven, and eight to have a clean scorecard.

“It was a fairly boring round today. I got off to a slow start but managed to get something going on my back nine.

“I went bogey-less today which was pleasing. I made one birdie on the front and five on the back, so it was a pretty stock standard stress-free round of golf.

“The front nine around here is fairly gettable with a few drivable par 4’s and a couple of par 5’s. I made sure I took care of those and before I knew it I had a good number,” Cadenhead said.

He holds a one-shot lead after round one over Daniel Pearce, Taylor Gill, Woonchul Na, and Fraser Wilkin.

Round two gets underway from 7.30 tomorrow morning.
