Amateur Cameron Smith shares lead at IFQ Australasia

Amateur Cameron Smith is tied with Stephen Dartnall for the first-round lead at International Final Qualifying at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne. Smith and Dartnall shot 5-under 67 to lead the chase for the three available places in the 142nd Open Championship.
