Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark delights with the Wentworth lead at the BMW PGA Championship.
Lucas shot 1 1st round -7 under par 65 to top the BMW PGA Championship leaderboard at Wentworth Golf Club in England;
“I’ve not had much success around this place but played lovely today.”
“I hit it pretty well off the tee. I hit a couple of loose shots in the end but managed to get up and down a couple of times, all in all I didn’t do much wrong.”
“It’s quite important to hit it straight and I felt like I did that. I put myself in a lot of good spots and left myself with a few short irons and took advantage of that.”
“I’m just pleased that my form from the last few weeks seems to continue and hopefully I can keep doing some of the same stuff the rest of the week.”
Sharing second place at -6 under after rounds of 66 are Dean Burmester and Darren Fichardt of South Africa.
Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland, is tied in third place at -5 under with Richard Bland, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Sam Horsfield, all from England, cheered on by a huge crowd of 20,000 local spectators to card opening rounds of 67.
Rory was happy with his good start, and said he is heading in the right direction;
“I played well, I played a lot better today than I have done the last couple of weeks so it’s a good step in the right direction.”
“I think I did everything pretty well. I drove the ball much better and put the ball in play off the tee a lot more than I’ve done the last couple of weeks, so that’s been really good.”
“I thought I gave myself a lot of chances and I took most of them. A little frustrated I couldn’t get a birdie or two out of the last couple of holes but, overall, a really good start.”
