Koki Idoki fired a 7-under-par 65 in a bogey-free round for a share of a one-stroke lead with Hidehisa Shikata after the first round of the Aiful Cup in Ishikawa Prefecture on Thursday.

Idoki, winner of three tournaments in his 20-year pro career, birdied three holes on the back nine and added four more after making the turn at the Golf Club Twin Fields in Komatsu.
