Star Border bowler Kylie Whitehead got off to the perfect start at the Australian Champion of Champions singles titles on Wednesday.
The Wodonga product had two victories to kick-off the tournament in style at Kingborough Bowling Club in Tasmania.
Whitehead cruised past ACT state champion Annette Tye, 21-3, in the morning before edging out Wentworthville’s Lee Benson, 21-18, in the afternoon.
But she admitted it took her a bit of time to find her groove.
“The greens are a bit slower here, so you’ve got to try get in a rhythm and get used to putting that extra weight on so you’re not short,” Whitehead said.
“I’ve played a couple of them before, but it’s to see a few different people and meet a few different ladies.”
She takes on Northern Territory’s Shenayde Heldt and Western Australia’s Bev Scott on Thursday.
Whitehead won the Australian singles crown in Merimbula last year.
