Bradley Dredge, Wales and Alvaro Quiros, Spain, lead the Trophée Hassan II tournament at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Morocco.
Bradley and Alvaro shot opening rounds of -5 under par 67 to top the Trophée Hassan II leaderboard in Morocco, where the layout measures a mammoth 7,557 yards.
Bradley enjoyed a good day on the course;
“A good day, very pleased to be leading the tournament after round one. I played nicely all day so delighted.”
“It’s just a matter of keeping the ball in play and shot-to-shot, as in looking where the pin positions are and then taking into consideration whether or not you can go for the pin or play away from it.”
“I haven’t played a great deal this year. I feel as though it’s progressing quite well at the moment so I’m quite pleased the way it’s trending, as a lot of guys say.”
Alvaro enjoyed a great day;
“I have to recognize that it was a great round of golf.”
“The score is good but I will say that the level that I displayed today from tee to green, it’s been unbelievable.”
“I know that five under is a very good score but it looks like it’s a little bit short for the game that I have displayed today.”
“Tomorrow is going to be a completely new day, and it’s only the second round of a four-round tournament.”
Tied in second place are Oliver Fisher, England, and Joakim Lagergren, Sweden, with rounds of -4 under 68.
