Johan Edfors hit 17 greens in regulation in a 5-under-par 33-33=66 on day one of the Porsche European Open at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach and is just a single shot off the lead.
The Swede, who was the only player of the current top seven on the leaderboard to start his day from the 1st tee, circled birdies at 3 and 4 on the front nine and added three more at 10, 13 and 16 after making the turn. That meant he posted just his fourth sub-70 first-round score of a, so far, disappointing season which sees him languishing at 183rd on the Race To Dubai. Edfors has missed six of his last eight cuts but did show glimpses of a return to form with a T17 at the M2M Russian Open earlier this month. He missed just one green in regulation despite hitting only 8 (of 13) fairways. Sep 24 - 9:24 AM

Johan Edfors is part of the conversation on day one of the Lyoness Open in Austria after opening with a 4-under-par 32-36-68.

That's just one swing back from leaders Chris Wood, Carlos Del Moral and Robert Dinwiddie. The Swede has made three of his last four cuts but still hasn't managed to crack the top 30 this season. He's in position to change that after a hot front nine and a steady finish. Edfors circled birdies at 1, 2, 5 and 9 to turn in 4-under before swallowing his only bogey of the day at 10. He picked off a final birdie at the par-5 15th while, on the stats, he hit 14 greens in regulation and was 3-for-4 in scrambling.

Johan Edfors let a bright start slip as he posted a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the first round of the Madeira Islands Open – BPI – Portugal.

The Swede was just one shot behind clubhouse leader JB Hansen after birdies at 18, 2 and 3 but the three-time European Tour winner squared bogeys at 5 and 7 to drop three back. Still, with the morning wave starting to finish up, Edfors is handily placed in T7 in a tournament which has been reduced to 54 holes after bad weather on Thursday. Edfors withdrew after an opening 75 in last week's Tshwane Open so appears to have recovered from any ailment. He finished T7 in this tournament last year when it was played over just 36 holes.

Johan Edfors owns a property on the Black Mountain course and will hope to use local knowledge to his advantage when he lines up in this week's True Thailand Classic.

The Swede has a villa which overlooks the 11th hole and admits he spends as much time in his Thai home as he does back in Scandinavia. But his links with the course don't end there. Edfors won the 2009 Black Mountain Masters and was also T17 in the 2014 King’s Cup held on the par 72 so he could be big factor this week despite his last two starts on the European Tour ending in missed cuts. Gamers should note that he won on the second-tier Challenge Tour in October so has some recent experience of a win.
