The team, at 9 under, is in outright second position after day one and just one shot behind the leaders, Scotland.
The Australians played at the Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club in round one, one of two venues for the event while tomorrow they take on the Greg Norman designed Mayakoba El Camaleon Golf Club.
Monash Golf Club’s Cameron Davis opened with a round of 67 to lead the team by one shot while his fellow Sydney-sider, Harrison Endycott, recorded a round of 68 and so those two scores will count on day one as the current US Amateur Champion Curtis Luck’s round of 69 was not enough to have made the leading two of three.
There is an Australian connection with the leaders also as Scotland’s Conner Syme, who recorded one of the two best rounds of the day, won the Australian Amateur Championship earlier this year.
Spain is in 3rd position at 8 under and two from the lead.
Syme and Poland’s Adrian Meronk lead the individual race after their opening rounds of 66 while Davis shares 3rd position after his round of 67.
