SYDNEY — John Senden shot a 6-under 66 on Thursday to take the early lead in the Australian Open, with Englishman Justin Rose two strokes back along with Kim Felton.

Adam Scott opened with a 72. After practicing with a traditional putter during the week, the Australian used his usual broom-handle putter that he anchors to his chest – a move that is expected to be banned in 2016 in a proposed rule change.

Defending champion Greg Chalmers and Tom Watson, making his first start in the event since winning in 1984, were among the afternoon starters.
