Australia's Grant Scott leads the field after the opening day of the Papua New Guinea Golf Open in Port Moresby on Thursday.

The New South Welshman shot a four under par 68 to sit two shots clear of Queenslanders Jason King and Heath Reed.

Defending champion Leigh Deagan is a further two shots back on even par, alongside Fiji's Krishna Singh, while the Solomon Islands' first ever professional golfer, George Rukabo, had a day to forget after carding a six over 78.
