Becky Brewerton of Wales established a one-stroke lead over the chasing pack at the end of the first round of the Open de Espana Femenino at the La Quinta Resort in Marbella. The 28-year-old shot a five-under-par 67 to lead from a group of three players, South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace, Luxembourg's Liebelei Lawrence and home favourite Tania Elosegui. Brewerton covered the back nine in just 32 shots to make an excellent start and she said: "I decided to try to commit to all the shots. I played quite well in Prague last week and I think the confidence carried over, so I'm obviously delighted to start five under." She added: "Today it was a little bit different. I wasn't feeling quite as comfortable on the long game but as we all know, it doesn't matter how you hit it, if you're putting well you'll shoot good scores." Scotland's Lynn Kenny and England's Melissa Reid stand four shots behind Brewerton after shooting rounds of 71, while defending champion Laura Davies was off the pace with a two-over round of 74.
