Ormsby leads Scandinavian Invitation after opening-round 62
GOTHENBURG, Sweden (AP) — Wade Ormsby holed a 4-iron from 196 yards for eagle on his way to shooting a bogey-free, 8-under 62 at the Scandinavian Invitation, giving him the first-round lead in the European Tour event on Thursday.
The Australian’s eagle at the par-4 14th hole came in an opening-nine 28, after starting his round at No. 10. He also rolled in six birdies, including three straight from the 16th hole.
Matthew Fitzpatrick was alone in fourth place, two shots off the lead, after a 64.
Henrik Stenson was the headline player in the field but, playing in his home country, the Swede mixed four birdies with three bogeys and shot 69.
