Hend leads by two at European Masters

Hend leads by two at European Masters”

Regardless, a year after losing out in a playoff, Scott Hend immediately put himself back into a share of the lead today at the European Masters in Switzerland.

Hatton's one-over-par 71 left him five under, while Jimenez finished three over for the day to fall 10 shots off the lead.

Thongchai Jaidee, Fabrizio Zanotti and Todd Sinnott are all four strokes back on nine under, with Matthew Fitzpatrick five off the pace along with Julian Suri and Ryan Fox.

But it was Hend who again caught the imagination, going one better than his opening round previous year to share top billing with Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez and England's Tyrrell Hatton.

Jimenez also competes on the senior tour and already holds the European Tour record as the oldest victor.

The Spaniard, who won the Open de Espana in 2014 at the age of 50 years and 133 days, carded seven birdies and a bogey in the opening round.

"It would be nice to putt a little bit better but when you walk off with 63 it's fantastic", Hend, who lost last year's tournament on a play-off, told Sky Sports.

"I'm looking forward to tomorrow now and hopefully I can pick up one shot coming in and then go again in the afternoon and fire a low one to do the business". However, he bounced back in some style, notching three birdies on the trot to get things well back on track.

Ko's hoping to turn her recent form slump around in time to host the New Zealand Women's Open at the new Windross Farm golf course just south of Auckland later this month.
