Caroline Masson leads the South African Women's Open after the first round
Caroline Masson took the lead after day one of the South African Women's Open with an opening 69 at Selborne Park Golf Club.
The German birdied the fourth and eight holes and although she bogeyed the 366-yard par-four 15th, the world number 74 ended her day on three-under-par after picking up a shot on the 17th.
Joanna Klatten, Anais Maggetti, Julie Greciet and Stacy Lee Bregman are all two shots back on one-under-par.
England's Felicity Johnson and Becky Brewerton of Wales are just behind the quartet after going round in level par, alongside home hope Ashleigh Simon.
Nontaya Srisawang, Morgana Robbertze and Connie Chen make up the top 10 on one-over-par.
