France's Celine Boutier and Su Oh of Australia were tied for second. Both courses will be used for the first two rounds of the tournament.

Only tomorrow, the immediate chasing pack will look markedly different after a day of pure carnage.

"Out there today, I felt in control of my emotions and my game".

Until he won promotion from the Challenge Tour last November, the 27-year-old from Aberdeen was planning to supplement his income this winter by working in the warehouse for one of his sponsors, who make gym equipment. "The more we get in that position, hopefully the more you get to experiment and figure it out". "I'm super excited with the way I handled myself".

The Vic Open was an event co-sanctioned with the LPGA Tour, with men and women playing on the same courses at the same time for equal prize money.

Japan's Haru Nomura, who played alongside Kaufman in Saturday's final group, is a shot behind at 7 under overall while a group of four players, South Korea's Mirim Lee, Australia's Katherine Kirk and England's and Felicity Johnson and Jodi Ewart Shadoff, are in a tie for fifth place at 4 under.

"We got hammered with the rain for about three or four holes there, so it was really good to get through that stretch", Asian Tour regular Stieger said after sinking seven birdies to stay in the hunt.

To say that Aussie Sarah Kemp had a career day is a gross understatement.

After just surviving the round-three cut, Kemp teed off in the second group early on Sunday morning and began her round inauspiciously with a double-bogey six. "My club wasn't even set but I stood there too long and thought "I've just got to hit this" and as soon as I did I thought 'It's gone way too far.' I just jarred it".

Strong winds and heavy rain made scoring hard over the Beach Course at 13th Beach Golf Club in Geelong, Australia.

"Luckily it's a links-style golf course, you can run the ball in, which I'm used to doing", said Law, who graduated to this year's Tour via finishing 14th on the 2018 European Challenge Tour. She rolled in a hole-in-one with a 6-iron from 160 yards for her seventh ace in competition and first since the third round of the 2016 LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship. "It's an fantastic event, we've loved it all week".

Through the first two events of the LPGA season, 21 players have top-10 finishes, led by Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions victor Eun-Hee Ji and ISPS Handa Vic Open victor Celine Boutier.
