“I have been playing well but haven’t been able to put a score together,” Moses said.

“I butchered the last three pro-ams at Kew, Port Macquarie and Hawks Nest. I started well in all of them, was three under early, and haven’t shot a score. It was nice to get the job done today. I made all the putts I had to make.”

The circuit moves to Muree on Wednesday before two-day events at Nelson Bay (Thursday-Friday) and Belmont (Monday-Tuesday).
