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.
