Terry Price shares lead in Germany
BY European Tour | 08 Sep 2012
Australian Terry Price shares the lead after the opening round of the Pon Senior Open at Vorbeck in Germany, the 51 year old tied with England’s Ross Drummond after the pair had produced rounds of 67.
They sit one shot ahead of Bernhard Langer with another Australian Mike Harwood in the group at 3 under and just two from the lead.
Drummond and Price were among the earlier starters and enjoyed favourable conditions. Both men were generally satisfied with their respective day’s work despite feeling they had left a few chances out on the course.
“That round was very close to being the one I need to make me feel really good about my game again,” said Price, who fired six birdies and just a single dropped shot over the demanding Winston Open course.
“I played pretty well and the conditions were pretty tough out there at times, but I left a few shots out there so it wasn’t quite the round I need to get my confidence really back up to where I need it.
“That has kind of been the story of my year out here really: a few good round here and there but never really putting it together for a whole week. That’s why the results have been pretty average.”
Drummond, meanwhile, had a very similar assessment of his first round performance. Having made a lightning fast start of four birdies in his opening six holes, the Scot was a little disappointed not to push on and record a really low score.
“After the start I made I suppose it could have been better but it was tough out there and I am happy enough with the start,” said Drummond, who finished fifth in last week’s Senior Tour event at Woburn Golf Club.
“I didn’t play as well today as I did last week at Woburn, but I wasn’t far away from that and it is always nice to continue some good scoring form into the next week having played well last week.”
Leading round one scores from the Pon Senior Open, Winston Golf, Schwerin, Germany, 6844 yard par 72.
