Miguel Angel Jiménez, Spain, Tyrrell Hatton, England and Scott Hend from Australia are in a three-way tie at the top of the Omega European Masters leaderboard after round one at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club in Switzerland.
Miguel, Tyrrell and Scott all carded -6 under 64 to lead the Omega European Masters by one shot from a posse of players chasing them down.
Scott came close to winning last year, and knows that putting is the key to winning, he needed only 27 in his first round here;
“It was nice to get off to a good start after coming so close last year.”
“Putting has always been the key to score.”
“It’s always about where you hit your bad shots on this golf course but that’s alright. I think a lot of experience on this golf course does help.”
“It’s a beautiful day today and I heard it will stay beautiful tomorrow too. We will see how it goes.”
” Hopefully another good round tomorrow will put me in position for the weekend.”
Sharing that second place at -5 under par are David Drysdale and Duncan Stewart from Scotland, Darren Fichardt, South Africa .Ryan Fox, New Zealand, Thongchai Jaidee, Thailand and Todd Sinnott from Australia.
Aussie Todd also had a good day with the putter;
“I birdied the two par-fives on 14 and 15 and managed to stay in it to birdie 16 before holing a nice putt for the fourth consecutive birdie on 17.”
