Giulia Sergas of Italy shot an 8-under-par 64 Thursday to take a three-stroke lead after the first round of the New Zealand Women's Open.

The 31-year-old U.S.-based Sergas played before afternoon winds made things difficult for the later golfers in the Ladies European Tour event at the par-72 Pegasus Golf Club north of Christchurch.

South Korea's Kim Bo-bea was in second place after a 67, with American Amelia Lewis, France's Cassandra Kirkland, Christel Boeljon of the Netherlands and Anja Monke of Germany in third place after 69s.

Defending champion Laura Davies of England shot 72 to share 15th place.
