Perth, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) -
Australian John Wade and Thorbjorn Olesen both carded a course-record, 8-under 64 at Lake Karrinyup Country Club on Thursday and they share the lead after one round at the ISPS Handa Perth International.
Wade has never won on the European Tour and his only professional victory came on the European Challenge Tour in 2006. Olesen's lone win came at the 2012 Sicilian Open.
Australian Michael Sim, Sihwan Kim and Tom Lewis were all one shot away from tying the course record. They are tied for third after 6-under 66s on Thursday.
Martin shines brightest in Vegas

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Las Vegas is a city full of bright lights that can distract you. The brightest lights on a golf course are the leaderboards.
Ben Martin doesn't like to look at those leaderboards, though. In the final round on Sunday at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, Martin caught a glimpse of one leaderboard after he bogeyed the eighth hole, and that was enough for him.
"I was nervous enough without looking at the scoreboard, so I didn't have to think about anything else," Martin said.
