Auckland golfer Ryan Fox is provisionally one off the lead through the opening round of the Fiji International.

With a number of players still out on course completing their first 18 holes, Fox has already completed his opening day of the PGA Tour of Australasia event - a three-under par 69 - to be provisionally tied for fifth and one stroke behind clubhouse leaders Stephen Dartnall, Rhein Gibson, Jason Scrivener and Minghao Wang.

Fox is one of eight Kiwis in the field at Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course, with Michael Hendry the next best Kiwi on one-under par (71).

Nick Gillespie has a job on to make the cut tomorrow, however, after a seven-over par opening round of 80 while Mahal Pearce is only one shot better off.
