Both Rhein and Daniel shot -4 under par 67 in the first round of the Nanshan China Masters to take a one shot lead in the tournament.
Rhein made the cut in this year’s Open championship and played the third round with Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth and was happy to make a sold start here after a lay-off period;
“That experience has really helped my confidence. I have spent the last five weeks at home with the wife so it was a bit hard to get going but I made a solid start.”
Local favorites China’s Li Hao-tong and Zhou Guo-wu, along with Nick Gillespie from New Zealand and Australian Adam Stephens finished a stroke behind on -3 under par, shooting 68.
Li Hao-tong is just 19 years old and a rising star, who stormed to an eight-stroke triumph in the Henan Open on the PGA TOUR China Series two weeks ago;
