Streeter defied the chilly and windy conditions to rack up eight birdies, including a run of four on the bounce from the 9th, and just a single bogey on the par-3 13th.
The two-time Legends Tour winner, who was a talented footballer in his 20s and turned professional in golf at the age of 31 off a handicap of plus three, was delighted with his start.
“I just played really good tee-to-green and capitalised on the par-5s. I hit it on three of them in two comfortably and the other one I was in a greenside trap. I hit it close and holed a few putts, which was nice. The greens are absolutely pure.
His four birdies around the turn were vital: “You’ve got back-to-back par-5s at 9 and 10, and if you get a good tee shot away, they’re in range. I hit it fairly close on 11 and then a bit of a bonus holing a 20-footer. To get that little run smartens the card up.”
Streeter’s nearest challengers are Adilson da Silva and Keith Horne on -5. Last year’s Barry Lane Rookie of the Year winner da Silva went bogey-free, while Qualifying School winner Horne made the ideal start to his rookie Legends Tour season with birdies at the first two holes.
There is a group of eight players tied for 4th on -4, including Michael Campbell 2005 US Open winner Michael Campbell, two-time DP World Tour winner Michael Jonzon and Germany’s Thomas Gögele.
There will be a re-draw for round two with players teeing off in reverse leaderboard order. Visit www.legendstour.com for a full list of tee times, live scoring and more information about the Riegler and Partner Legends.
