Scottish teenager Carly Booth was in a four-way share of the lead after the opening round of the Unicredit Ladies German Open.
The 19-year-old won the Scottish Open just three weeks ago for her breakthrough senior title and was again in fine form as she shot a 67, containing seven birdies and two dropped shots, at the Golfpark Gut Hausern near Munich.
She came home in 31, and that meant she was level with Austrian Stefanie Michl and the Swedish pair of Carin Koch and Caroline Westrup.
Booth said: "I was just trying to be patient. It was a slow front nine: I was only level par through nine but then birdied 10 and 11 and nearly holed my shot on 13 and tapped in for birdie. I parred 14, 15 and 16 and then birdie, birdie to finish.
"It was just very solid, especially my last nine. The front nine I missed quite a few putts so I could have been a lot more under par but I left a lot of putts short. I'm happy with today's round."
Sweden's Pernilla Lindberg and 17-year-old Czech Klara Spikova both posted rounds of 68, with English veteran Laura Davies among a group of 14 players on three under along with Italian defending champion Diana Luna.
