Host Garcia shares lead at Valderrama Masters

Host Garcia shares lead at Valderrama Masters”

Just a few moments later, Luiten nearly jarred his tee shot at the 12th, and went on to make the birdie putt.

The Spaniard had seven birdies and two bogeys at Real Club Valderrama to finish the opening day level with Joost Luiten of the Netherlands.

Luiten had finished second at last year's Open de Espana at the same venue and reached the halfway stage a stroke ahead of tournament host Sergio Garcia, Englishman Robert Rock and Scott Jamieson of Scotland.

Luiten hit a stunning albatross to claim a one-shot lead after two rounds.

Consecutive 69s have him 4-under and outright fifth in a field where only 15 players are in red figures through 36 holes. Richard Green missed the cut by two shots at 6-over.

Garcia, victor of the previous staging of this event six years ago, made an excellent start in his pursuit of a sixth European Tour title on home soil - and a 14th in total - by carding a five-under 66 at Real Club Valderrama on Thursday.

"I like this place".

"I think 10-under will be a good number".

Garcia said: "I'm very happy with my round".

Spain's Jon Rahm got off to a disappointing start with a 3-over 74.
