The tournament is played on a modified Stableford format that awards points based on the performance of each hole.
An eagle is worth five points, a birdie two points, a par zero points and a bogey one point.
Seung-Yeol Noh (KOR), who started on the 10th hole, eagled all three par-5s to take sole possession of first place.
