Fraser takes 1st-round lead at Ballantine’s

JEJU ISLAND, South Korea (AP) — Marcus Fraser of Australia shot a 7-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead after the opening round of the fog-disrupted Ballantine’s Championship.

Fraser had a bogey-free round and leads England’s Mark Foster at the $2.9 million event, being held at Pinx Golf Club and sanctioned by the Asian Tour, European Tour and the Korea PGA.

Ted Oh of South Korea shot a 67 in near darkness Thursday after a six-hour fog delay to take a share of third place with Rick Kulacz of Australia and Welshman Jamie Donaldson, who are both 5 under through 17 and 16 holes, respectively.

Ernie Els of South Africa and American Anthony Kim both shot 68.

Nearly a third of the field did not start their first rounds.
