Dyson, Quiros share lead in China

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Eng­land’s Si­mon Dyson and Spain’s Al­varo Quiros share the first round lead af­ter post­ing five­un­der-par rounds of 67 at the Volvo China Open in Shen­zhen.

De­fend­ing cham­pion Brett Rums­ford was in a group one shot be­hind, Ian Poul­ter lies two shots back af­ter an open­ing 69, while world num­ber three Hen­rik Sten­son is four off the lead af­ter a 71.

Big-hit­ting Quiros, who has failed to record a top-three fin­ish on Tour in the last three sea­sons, had a fine round that in­cluded four birdies and an ea­gle, and says that he is com­ing back into the form that saw him cap­ture six wins be­tween 2007 and 2011. ”You can’t see it yet on the rank­ings but I have been play­ing bet­ter,” he said.

“The Mid­dle East swing was a good three weeks for me then I had a good re­sult in Joburg and the last cou­ple of weeks have been bet­ter.

“It was a good round of golf. It was a bit of a shame on the last par five be­cause I was half a me­tre away from hav­ing a great chance to make an­other ea­gle but I ended up on the lip of the bunker and had to set­tle for a chip and two putts.”
