13:10: Scott HENRY Keith HORNE Jason KNUTZON

Scott Henry shot an opening round 69 at the Lyoness Open, and the Scot, who’s tied for seventh, will be hoping he will still be in the top-10 come the end of play.

Henry’s day started with a birdie, and that set the tone for his best opening round since the Madeira Islands Open at the beginning of last month. Another birdie putt dropped at the fifth, but he returned to one-under after bogeying the ninth – the only blemish on his card.

He began with a birdie at the tenth, which Henry followed up with five pars. A birdie on the par-5 16th saw the Scot move to three-under and he stayed there thanks to pars at 17 and 18, leaving him well placed for round two of the Lyoness Open.


Lyoness Open leader


Mikael Lundberg had six birdies and a single bogey in round one of the Lyoness Open. A two-under outward nine saw the Swede placed nicely on the leaderboard, but four-under-par back nine, including an eagle at the 13th, left him with an excellent score of five-under.

“I played pretty solid all day and made a few putts, so it all added up to a pretty good day,” said Lundberg.

“Nothing was spectacular today, but everything was pretty solid. I’ve been working well with my new coach, and we’ve made a lot of progress over the past four weeks.

“My long game is working well, my short game comes and goes so I’m still a little bit inconsistent around the greens, but I’m getting there.

It seems that Lundberg is indeed ‘getting there’; the Swede is three-under at the turn for his second round.

08:20: Joost LUITEN Anders HANSEN Thomas PIETERS

Defending champion Joost Luiten is among the early starters as he’s looking to continue his recent good form to boost his chances of becoming the first Dutchman to play in The Ryder Cup.

Luiten is four-under for his second round through 13 and has yet to card a bogey. He is currently five behind the leader on three-under-par. He looks capable of defending his Lyoness Open title.
