Diksha Dagar's dream season continued as she sunk in a hole-in-one to lie tied-sixth after round one of the Lavaux Ladies Championship here.
The event is on the Ladies European Tour's Access Series, the second rung of the Tour.
Dagar shot two-under 70 and was lying tied-sixth with two birdies, two bogeys and an ace.
Dagar, winner of the Women's South African Open, used an 8-Iron and aced the 15th for her first hole in one on the international platform as a pro.
France's Ariane Provot shot four-under round of 68 to take the outright lead on day one. The Frenchwoman scored seven birdies, including three in a row on holes from fifth to seventh, and three bogeys, one clear of the chasers.
Finland's Sanna Nuutinen and Sweden's Viva Schlasberg ended the opening day's play with a share of second place at Lavaux, after shooting three-under-par rounds of 69.
The pair were joined on three-under by Scotland's Rachel Taylor and Valentine Derrey of France.
There are 12 players within two shots of overnight leader Provot.
