Richard Sterne splashed 10 birdies on his card, including three straight to finish, to complete an 8-under-par 33-30=63 in round one of the Italian Open, good enough for a share of the lead with English duo Robert Rock and Laurie Canter.
The trio are two shots clear of a nine-man bunch at 6-under which includes Danny Willett, Thomas Pieters, Rafa Cabrera Bello and Ross Fisher. The field took advantage of the easy scoring conditions at the softened Gardagolf CC today and, playing in the fifth last group from 10th tee, Sterne didn't want to miss the party and posted red at 11, 12, 13 and 15 before closing par-bogey-par to be out in 33. The lead still seemed a long way off at that point but, despite an interruption for bad weather during his second nine, the South African produced another pair of birdie trios with gains at 2, 3 and 4 and 7, 8 and 9. He gave one back between those sets with bogey-4 at 5. This is the first time the 36-year-old has topped the leaderboard on day one since he did it in back-to-back weeks (Dubai Desert Classic and Joburg Open) in February 2013. He went on to finish second in the former and win the latter so the six-time European Tour winner will hope to take advantage in similar fashion here. May 31 - 2:47 PM
