Good start for McCall

Southland's Vaughan McCall has completed his opening round at the New Zealand Open in good position.

The Gore Golf Club member was tied for eighth place after his morning round, after a one-under 71 at Clearwater in Christchurch.

McCall, the leading amateur in the tournament, was three shots behind early leader Craig Hancock, from Australia, and the second-placed New Zealander behind Ryan Fox.

Te Anau's David Klein was sitting tied for 59th early in his opening round after an afternoon tee time.
