Nicholas leads at Amputee Open

World No.5 Geoff Nicholas leads after the first round of the Ottobock Australian Amputee Open in Queensland.

The New South Welshman carded an opening 76 to lead retired American army veteran Chad Pfeifer by a shot at the Greg Norman-designed Pelican Waters Golf Club.

The 54-hole event has attracted 37 players – double the entrants of 2017 – with representatives from as far afield as New Zealand and United States.

The European Disabled Golf Association and Golf Australia ranking event will feature winners in multiple categories on the final day on Friday.
