“It’s getting my head around these 54 hole events, it’s my first year on tour and getting off to a good start is so important… I know there’s two rounds left, there’s a lot of golf left, I’m not getting over excited, I am really happy with my round but I think it’s important to start well to get ahead of the game so to speak…I’ve been working hard on my game at home, probably the hardest I’ve worked all year, especially my putting, which was a lot better today so that’s good.”
Swede Joakim Haeggman is second after shooting 66, with Welshman Liam Bond, South African Chris Williams and Jean-François Remesy of France in a tie for 3rd after rounds of 67.
