Australia's Matthew Guyatt upstaged the marquee players at the Australian Masters on Thursday, shooting a 7-under 65 to take a two-shot lead after the first round at Kingston Heath.
Adam Scott had five birdies on his final nine holes for a 67 and was tied for second with defending champion Ian Poulter of England and New Zealander Michael Hendry.
Former Australian Masters champion Stuart Appleby had a 71, as did 2010 U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland, who was playing in the same group as Scott.
''It was a nice day,'' said the 37-year-old Guyatt, who plays on the Japanese Challenge tour. ''I have never been in this position before. It's what you do all the hard work and practice for. I am not going to get ahead of myself.
''It's the first day of four and we all know it takes four good days to win the tournament, particularly when you look at the caliber of those guys.''
