Aaron, Jason and Myazato all carded first rounds of -5 under par 65 to top the Hong Kong Open leaderboard.
Aaron was pleased with his bogey free start;
“It was good. I think we were lucky with the weather today.”
“When we got here this morning it was kind of blowy so the guys this morning had it harder than we did but nonetheless it’s a tough course.”
“I think anything under par was a good score and I was very pleased with a 65 to start off.”
Jason was also bogey free saying he played well today;
“The front nine is quite tricky and you’ve got to kind of be patient and wait for your opportunities, and I did that quite well today.”
Myazato threw in a bogey in his round, but had a good day with his putter;
“Today I was putting well and my iron shots were good.”
“It was getting dark and I couldn’t really see that well, so I just played with my gut feeling and was able to birdie the last hole which was nice.”
Three other players are all sharing fourth place, one shot back at -4 under par, Arjun Atwal, India, Jack Singh Brar, England and Micah Lauren Shin of the USA.
