XU LEADS AFTER ROUND ONE OF CARRUS OPEN

10/10/2019

Fiona Xu has shot into the lead after the first day at the Carrus Open.

Xu fired an impressive five-under par round to take a two-shot lead over Darae Chung at the conclusion of day one.

Like Cadenhead, she started on the 11th hole this morning and made the turn at three-under after birdies at the 15th, 16th, and 17th holes.

She’d continue to ride the momentum making another three birdies at the fifth, eighth, and 10th holes with a bogey on the sixth.

“I had six birdies today and I made just the one bogey. I hit a lot of nice approach shots today, I had a lot of birdie chances from around nine to 15 feet and I holed quite a few of those.

“The course is in really good condition. It was very windy after my first nine holes today so that was a bit challenging, but I was hitting my driver really straight so that made it a lot easier,” said a happy Xu.

She leads Darae Chung by two shots, with the next best coming at even-par.

Round two gets underway from 7.30 tomorrow morning.
