Brooke Henderson had some success in her first competitive round of golf in Australia but she has a long way to go to catch a fellow Canadian.

The Smiths Fall, Ontario pro turned in an opening score of 70 (-2) in the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open, playing alongside Golf Hall of Fame member Laura Davies and Karrie Webb.

Brooke, accompanied by sister Brittany as her caddy, sprinkled in a mix of five birdies and three bogies on the day at The Grange Golf Club, alternatively hitting shots that were brilliant and others that were not up to her usual standard.

She shares 21st place in Adelaide with 54 holes left to play.

Leading the way in the event is SooBin Kim. Korean by birth and citizenship, Kim moved to Coquitlam, British Columbia at the age of ten. Kim blazed the field with a course record 63 and and leads by three strokes.

Hamilton, Ontario’s Alena Sharp, the only other Canadian in the field, shot 71.
