Park finds form to take one-shot lead
Friday 23 April 2004
The Welshman David Park, who won on his second European Tour start but has not finished in the top three in 134 events since, has a one-shot lead after the Spanish Open's first round.
Park carded a flawless six-under-par 64 here yesterday to move ahead of his compatriot Jamie Donaldson, with England's Roger Chapman and France's Christian Cevaer a stroke further back in third. Argentina's Ricardo Gonzalez, winner of the Seville Open on Sunday, continued his good form with a 67 but the pre-tournament favourite Jose Maria Olazabal could only manage a one-over-par 71.
