Australia’s Fabrizio Zanotti and Marcus Fraser shared their lead at BMW International Open after respective 64s, when home hero Martin Kaymer ended the 1st round 7 shots off the tempo.
Marcus Fraser’s all-round play was really impressive: fifteen greens were detected in the regulation, twelve of fourteen fairways were struck and only twenty-five swings were required as he hit 8 birdies – including 4 on the run.
Fabrizio Zanotti was less coherent compared his co-leader, blending seven birdies along with 2 eagles, one bogey as well as a double bogey.
Martin Kaymer’s round was very colorful as he was unable to carry on after a firm start. Three pars served to decide any early mettle, ahead a birdie at par-five thirteenth gave him the trust of shooting a competitory score. A chain of pars controlled his progress, still, and the golfer’s frustrations became punctuated when he went out the 8th along with a bogey.
A 71 is not catastrophic at all but the German player has to raise his game level if he wants climb up the leaderboard as well as keep himself into competition. Sergio Garcia teased the similar score, the Spanish player left to regret some misses with short stick.
Danny Willett is heading the chasing group, the English player well placed on seven-under. He did not cast off a shot in his 18 holes. Indian golfer Shiv Kapur is one of the many players on 6-under, and he arriving at the most of getting a hot putter in the hands with 8 birdies.
