IRISH GOLFER STEPHANIE Meadow lies four shots from the lead after the first day of action at the Women’s Australian Open in Seaton. 

Meadow shot an opening-day 70 – a bogey-free round featuring three birdies, two of which came on the closing two holes – to leave herself in a tie for 19th position, four shots behind leader Jodi Ewart Shadof. 

Leona Maguire of Cavan, meanwhile, is four shots further back from Meadow, in a tie for 90th place following a one-over 74. 

Maguire arrived to the tournament in good form, having finished fourth in last week’s Vic Open, also hosted in Australia.
