Ranked 310th in the world, Tanguay's best career finish is a tie for 16th at the 2018 Cambia Portland Classic.

"It's always pretty hard to back up eight under with another strong one, so it's going to sound really clichÈ, but one shot at a time and see what it adds up to at the end of 18 holes tomorrow".

Webb's most recent tournament was at the British Open in August, after which she returned home to Australia to spend more time with her family and on course design.

BARWON HEADS, AUSTRALIA-Felicity Johnson made a late move up the leaderboard Thursday at the LPGA's Vic Open to take a two-stroke lead over Canadian Anne-Catherine Tanguay and two others after the opening round. "I hit 17 greens in regulation, birdied three of the par 5s, so there's kind of a couple of nearly gimme birdies".

"I've still got an itch to scratch; there's a golf feeling in me that I haven't felt probably consistently", said the 41-year-old Ogilvy.

"I've been playing well for the last two years, I just haven't been playing enough golf. I just want it to feel great".

He is at six-under par in nice conditions today and 12-under overall through 15 holes of the second round, a shot ahead of Englishman Michael Hoey (11-under through 10 on the Creek) and another WA player, Jason Scrivener (11-under through seven holes on the Beach course).

In a format unique to world professional golf, the ISPS Handa Vic Open is a leader in sports equality.

8am: On the back of an extraordinary day of scoring that saw 76 per cent of the field shoot par or better, 13th Beach is preparing to bare its teeth on Tuesday at the ISPS Handa Vic Open.

Ogilvy says there is no reason why the men's and women's Australian Opens couldn't also be run alongside each other at the same 36-hole venue. He will play on the Beach course this afternoon, with stronger winds forecast and the players likely to find the scoring a little more hard.

"It's the first day so there's a long way to go still", said Johnson, who played on the LPGA Tour from 2013-17 before returning to the Ladies European Tour in 2018.

Given there were two bogeys in his round of 10 under par 62 over the Creek Course, it was a stunning effort. 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 just really good to be back out there". There was this one guy near the green saying it like just rolled in, so I had one guy see it.

"I was kind of devastated past year when I was four holes away from a European Tour card and now have no status -- I mean, I have partial status on the Web.com Tour that will get me no starts".
