Posted by Admin 23 Jun 2017

Indian golfer Shiv Kapur, who got in as a sponsor's invite, made a great a start with a five-under 67 that placed him Tied sixth at the BMW International Open here. 

 

 

Kapur, who is coming off some good results including a win and second place finish on the Asian Tour, had seven birdies including five on the back nine. 

Another Indian in the field, Jeev Milkha Singh struggled to four-over 76 that included two double bogeys. 

Australian Wade Ormsby fired a blemish-free 64 to take the first-round lead. 

This season, Kapur has made two cuts on European Tour events, only one of them was in Europe in Sweden, and other was Malaysian Championships. He missed cuts at Golf Sixes in Australia and Hero Indian Open. 

Ormsby arrived at Golfclub M nchen Eichenried off the back of three missed cuts but returned to form in spectacular style, getting to eight under to take a one-shot lead from Belgian Thomas Detry. 

Masters Tournament champion Sergio Garcia was playing his first regular European Tour event since claiming his first Major Championship at Augusta National and he carded a bogey- free 66 to sit two shots off the lead alongside Dutchman Joost Luiten and Dane Thorbj rn Olesen. 

The Open Championship winner Henrik Stenson was then in the group at five-under as an elite field jostled for position on a congested leaderboard in Germany. 

Detry had set the target in the morning and for a long time, it did not look like he would be caught before Ormsby stormed out of the blocks to turn in 30 after starting on the tenth. 

 

Defending champion Stenson had a single bogey in his round to sit in the group at five under alongside fellow Swede Rikard Karlberg, Englishmen Richard Bland, Tommy Fleetwood, James Morrison and Matthew Southgate, South African Jaco Ahlers, Thai Kiradech Aphibarnrat, American Daniel Im, Indian Shiv Kapur, Argentinian Andres Romero and Frenchman Joel Stalter. 
 

Paul Peterson recorded the 19th hole-in-one of the season when he holed a four iron on the second and Romero took the tally to 20 when he repeated the trick with a five iron later in the day.
