Thorbjorn Olesen and John Wade have set matching course records to share the opening-round lead at the Perth International.

Australian qualifier Wade capitalised on a strong start to soar to the top of the standings with an eight-under-par 64, while Olesen sunk four birdies in his first five holes to join him at the summit.

Fellow Australian Michael Slim ended day one two shots behind, along with Kim Sihwan, Peter Whiteford and England's Tom Lewis, who between them make up the chasing pack.

Mark Foster is trailing with five-under-par 67, meanwhile, ahead of tomorrow's second day of play.
