Kiwi Ryan Fox has made a positive start in his return to golf, finishing the first round of the Irish Open in a share for 65th - six shots off the leader.
Playing in his first tournament since late July after heading back home to New Zealand for a break, Fox carded one-under 71.
Starting on the back-nine, he got through the first three holes even par, but found himself in trouble after that, carding three bogeys, as he slipped down the leaderboard.
However, a birdie on the 18th seemed to turn the tide for Fox, who made three more birdies to finish the front-nine blemish free.
Daniel Hillier was the best in the field for the Kiwis, after scoring four-under 68 to close out the first day in a tie for 13th.
The highlight of his round came on the hardest hole - the 18th - where he drained a six-metre putt to card an eagle, to go with his five birdies and three bogeys on the day.
Hillier sits three shots behind India's Shubhankar Sharma, who leads after carding a seven under 65.
On the LPGA Tour, Lydia Ko has made a confident start to the Kroger Queen City Championship in Ohio, shooting four-under par to finish the first round in a share for 13th.
It's a positive sign from Ko, who's struggling with a slump in form, after failing to register a top-20 finish since February.
China's Ruixin Liu lead's the tournament on seven under par, after producing a bogey-free round.
