64 - Defending champion Brett Rumford posted an opening round of 64, the lowest opening round in the two years since this event began. 

29 - Rumford played his first nine holes, the back nine, in 29 shots, lower than anyone else today.

2 - There are two men in the field who have previously won at Lake Karrinyup Country Club - Rumford (2017 ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth) and Thorbjørn Olesen (2014 ISPS HANDA Perth International).

210 - Zander Lombard made an albatross at the par five 15th. The South African used a two-iron from 210 yards to temporarily move him into a share of second.

2 - Lombard's albatross is the second of the season, following Ryan Fox's in Malaysia last week.

1 - Min Woo Lee is the only amateur in this week's field. The Australian started with a round of three under par.
