Boyd enjoys flying start with putter
Friday 24 June 2011
England's Gary Boyd found fine early form with an opening 65, including eight birdies, at the BMW International Open in Munich yesterday, a score bettered by one shot by Sweden's Henrik Stenson later in the day.
Behind that pair are the Dutchman Tim Sluiter, a Tour rookie ranked 1,368th in the world. Martin Kaymer, the world No 3, is one under and Paul Casey was going well at four under until he strayed into thick rough and took a quadruple-bogey eight.
"I holed some great putts," said Boyd. "I've been working a lot on pace – the hole never comes to the ball, does it?"
