NATADOLA, 16 OCTOBER 2015 (FIJI INTERNATIONAL) ----New Zealander Josh Geary leads the Fiji International after a windswept first round.
Playing in one of the last groups of the day, Geary stormed home with two birdies in his last four holes to shoot an even par 72.
Geary was the only player in the first round to shot even par with his nearest competitors two shots further back.
Also playing in the afternoon field was tournament drawcard Matt Kuchar, who was pleased to be finished at 2-over the card.
Kuchar’s round was highlighted by an unusual situation on the par-4 2nd, where the wind literally blew his ball into the hole.
Alistair Presnell , Daniel Nisbet, R.J. Caracella and Australian Masters Champion Nick Cullen also join Kuchar tied second on 2-over 74.
Rounding out the top-10 on 3-over the card are Peter Cooke, James Nitties, Scott Laycock and Mathew Goggin.
Meanwhile Antonio Murdaca in his Pro debut finished the first round on 4-over the card after briefly co-leading with Kuchar.....PACNEWS
