The Ryder Cup standout shot a 65 at the Golf Club Torino to join Ricardo Gonzalez and Maximilian Kieffer at 7 under.

Colsaerts withdrew from last week's KLM Open with the flu and appears to have benefited from some time at home.

''Nothing beats being back home with your mum looking after you,'' Colsaerts said.

Gonzalez missed three cuts in a row since finishing as runner-up at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles but he was on form with six birdies, one bogey and an eagle. Kieffer had a 25-foot putt for the outright lead at the last hole but had to settle for a par.
