Kiwi golfer Gareth Paddison has raced to the lead of the Indonesian PGA Championship today. 

Paddison, 33, fired an opening round eight-under 64 at the NZ$1.67m tournament to hold a one-shot lead. 

His round included two eagles, but he bogeyed his last hole, the ninth at the Bumi Serpong Damai course in what is the season-opening event for both the Japan Tour and OneAsia Tour. 

Fellow Kiwis David Smail and Michael Hendry both opened with five-under 67s.

Next year, she's so close

She's still working towards it, within three years

It may be longer than we think, within five years

The expectation might be too much, maybe never
