Tim Elliott has produced some scintillating golf in today's opening round of the Sunshine Coast Masters, to lead the way following his 6-under par 66.

The current E-Z-GO PGA Legends Tour Order of Merit leader, Elliott was bogey free in his round at the Noosa Golf Club opening up a one shot lead over Ian Baker-Finch, with Lucien Tinkler and Craig Warren a further shot back in third.

Elliott was pleased with his round, especially after what was a disappointing tournament at Byron last week.

"It wasn't one of my best tournaments last week in Byron, but there is no better way than to bounce right back and I did here at Noosa today," said Elliott.

"I have played a fair amount of golf around the Noosa Course, and it's one that I have really enjoyed playing every time I teed it up.

"I can still recall playing here when I first played the Jack Newton Classic which was staged at the Noosa Golf Club in the late 80's and 90's.

"I hit the ball great today, combining with a pretty hot putter. I am feeling good about my game, so hopefully this will continue to be the trend over the final two rounds."

Round 2 of the Sunshine Coast Masters now moves to the Pelican Waters Golf Club, with both Tim Elliott and Ian Baker-Finch teeing off at 12:15pm.
