Jimenez fires 64 to share 1st round lead at European Masters”

In-form Indian golfer S.S.P. Chawrasia will continue his hunt for a first title on European soil at the Omega European Masters, which begins on Thursday.

Aged 53, Jimenez had seven birdies and a single bogey on the picturesque Swiss Alps course to share the top of the leaderboard with 30th-ranked Tyrrell Hatton of England and Scott Hend of Australia.

The world number five carded a three under 33 in her opening nine at the Indy Women in Tech Open and has made two early birdies on her back nine.

"I played well, hit it good and that's what you need to shoot low", Jimenez told Sky Sports.

Playing in the group behind, Hatton holed out from the 12th fairway for eagle on his way to reaching the turn in 30 and cancelled out a bogey-five at the first with gains at the sixth and seventh.

Darren Fichardt, David Drysdale, Duncan Stewart, Ryan Fox, Thongchai Jaidee and Todd Sinnott are all one shot off the pace in a tie for fourth, while defending champion Alex Noren finished level par.

Before that, Fox was in sublime form in Europe, recording three successive top- six finishes. The European Masters is also an Asian Tour event.

Kiwi golfer Ryan Fox has made a great start to the latest European Tour event in Switzerland.

Lee Westwood joins Robert Lee to look back at the opening round of the Omega European Masters, his 500th European Tour appearance.
