65 - Low score of the day courtesy of Peter Uihlein. It is the second straight event the American has opened with a 65, having done so last week in Malaysia. Before that, it was more than 12 months since he last shot lower than 66 (third round of the Maybank Malaysian Open in February 2015).

17 - Under par for five career rounds at Lake Karrinup Country Club for Uihlein, who finished in the top ten here in his only previous appearance in 2014.

2 - Uihlein's score on the 350 yard par four ninth hole, thanks to an impressive pitch shot from the fairway.

0 - Wins for Romain Wattel on the European Tour. The Frenchman has two runner up finishes and 23 top tens but is yet to take home a trophy.

1.66 - Putts per green in regulation for Kapur this season, best on Tour among those who've played more than six rounds.

68 - For amateaur Cormac Sharvin today, playing in his first European Tour event. The Northern Irishman was unbeaten in 3 matches at the 2015 Walker Cup at Royal Lytham & St Annes.

71 - For defending champion Thorbjorn Olesen. Two birdies in his last three holes means the Dane has broken par in all five rounds he's played at this event. He shared this photo after his round as he continued to battle a cold.

17 - Aussies in the top 32 on the leaderboard after 18 holes. Rhein Gibson was the lowest of them, firing a 67 late on day one.

8 - Of ten events so far this season have been won by Australians or South Africans. Only Rickie Fowler and Danny Willett are the exceptions.
