Paul Dunne takes 3-shot lead at Spanish Open

Paul Dunne takes 3-shot lead at Spanish Open”

Scotland's Marc Warren ended with 5 birdies in the last seven holes to direct the Spanish Open by OneShot on six-under level ahead of regional popular Jon Rahm and Spanish novice Victor Pastor right after the first round on Thursday.

The Irishman had nine birdies at the Centro Nacional de Golf, moving to 13-under for the tournament.

Rahm needed a birdie in the 13th before a bogey in another hole signed off on a top having the eagle in the 18th, joining compatriot Pastor on five-under.

Scotland's Marc Warren was the only man to match Dunne's round. I went on playing, I wasn't really thinking about the score, " Dunne said. 'I only made one mistake on number 12, but besides that tee to green was outstanding. My golf was good S O I'm very delighted.

Home favourite Jon Rahm shot a five-under 67 to finish one off the lead after the first round of the Spanish Open on Thursday (Friday NZ time). "The putts that missed I didn't leave myself much to do and the good putts always looked like they had a chance of going in".

Rahm arrived on home soil buoyed by a fourth-place finish in the Masters last weekend - his best showing in a major - and put himself firmly in contention to claim a first professional title in Spain.

"To be honest, I played a lot better than I expected, especially off the tee", Rahm told the European Tour website.

"I find the greens quite tricky to read, especially on the front nine, so it was nice to get a couple of putts to go in on the back nine and climb up the leaderboard", Dunne, who won the British Masters a year ago, told Sky Sports.

"Things like that are a bonus".

Pastor, 113th in the Amateur Golf Ranking, started with an eagle and came up with five birdies before a bogey at the last cost him a share of the lead. "As a recreational it is a bit distressing as you don't even play with your class or championship. however, it seems very good".

England's Andrew Johnston, who won the title in 2016 and is the defending champion as no event was staged past year, is five off the pace after back-to-back rounds of 68.
