David Higgins is seeking his first career win on the European Tour.
Fanling, Hong Kong (SportsNetwork.com) -
David Higgins fired a 6-under 64 on Thursday to claim a 1-stroke lead at the end of the first round of the Hong Kong Open.
The 31-year-old is seeking his first career win on the European Tour.
"I just played solid tee to green, holed some lovely putts and had a chip in," Higgins said about his round. "If you're going to have a score like that, you have to do some good stuff. You've got to use your imagination; let it run out a little bit, maybe use a slope here and there, so it's good for me. It's a great test of golf."
Andrea Pavan carded a 5-under 65 at Hong Kong Golf Club to sit alone in second place, while Prom Meesawat, Andrew Dodt, Chih-Bing Lam, Seve Benson, Mardan Mamat, Adam Gee and Sujjan Singh shot matching 4-under 66s to share third.
