Ashun carded a bogey free -7 under par 64 to top the KLM Open leaderboard, giving him a one shot advantage for the second round;
“I made a great start with five birdies over my front nine and I followed that up with two more over my back nine – and I’m very happy to have been bogey-free today.”
“I was very good on the par threes today. I hit a nine iron on the 14th to about four feet and then on the par three 16th, although I missed the green, I managed to chip in for birdie.”
“I feel very good from last week and I am gaining even more confidence this week.”
Chris Wood, England, is in second place, he also went round bogey free posting a -6 under par 65 for second place alone;
“I finished in the top ten last year and I love this place so it’s great to come back.”
“It was perfect out there this morning. The course is in such good condition and the greens are as good as any that we have played all year.”
Off the tee it is tough here. There is a little bit of room on some holes which helps me out as I’m not the straightest with the driver but there are a few drives here that you have to hit really well.”
“That’s the key for me really, if I can put the ball on the fairway then my iron play, my wedge play and my putting is good enough.”
The top two are followed by a group pf 13 players, all at -5 under par after opening rounds of 66.
