Molle carded six birdies and only one bogey as she posted her course record in warm morning conditions that were ideal for scoring, while Banon kept her scorecard bogey-free in an effort that included 15 greens in regulation and only 28 putts for her round.

New South Welshwoman Sarah Kemp and Olivia Cowan from Germany are a stroke back on two-under-par.
