Ichihara, who was the 1999 World Junior champion, blasted nine birdies against two bogeys for the sole lead at the Vietnam Golf and Country Club.

Ichihara, with 12 wins on the mini local circuit, shot his best round on the Asian Tour as a 67 placed him ahead of the field in Ho Chi Minh.

"This is my best score on the Asian Tour. I am really pleased. The last time I led the opening round was at the Philippine Open so this time around, I hope to lead all the way," said Ichihara, who is ranked 67th on the Asian Tour's Order of Merit.

"I need to get inside the top-65 to secure my card for next season so with that in mind, it has motivated me to push hard this week. My putting was good and I hope to play equally well tomorrow," said the 26-year-old Tokyo-based player.
