Neil Chaudhuri leads the Motocaddy Masters at The Carrick on Loch Lomond after a first round 68 left him three-under-par for the EuroPro Tour event.

Welshman James Frazer and Sebastian Garcia Grout of Spain share second on two-under, just one off the lead. Behind them, three players are tied for third on one-under.

Motocaddy Masters :: The Leader

The course provided a stern test on the opening day, but leader Chaudhuri responded instantly to a bogey at the first by birdieing the second. He went out in 33 after breaking par again at five, six and nine, but dropped down the leaderboard when he doubled the par-4 tenth.

The Leicester golfer, who represented England as an amateur, responded well again with a birdie at 11 and he returned to the lead with a birdie at 16, before closing out his round with two pars to sign for a 68.

Greg McBain had a solid front nine, making par on every hole other than the third, which he birdied. His back nine began with par, then he birdied 11. Five pars then followed before a dropped shot at 17 saw him drop back to one-under-par.

Neil Fenwick of Dunbar is also inside the top ten on seventh place at the Motocaddy Masters after shooting an even-par round of 71. John Henry from Clydebank is a shot behind in 13th, with Eric Ramsay of Carnoustie a further shot adrift.
