Richie Ramsay sprinkled seven birdies on his first-round scorecard but had to settle for an opening 4-under-par 34-33=67 at the Made in Denmark.
That's three swings behind leaders Thomas Pieters, Joakim Lagergren and Tom Lewis and T10 on the leaderboard. And yet the Scot will feel he should be nearer the top after making a mess on two of the easiest holes on the course at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort. At the par-4 5th hole, where eagles were common and Scott Jamieson even recorded an albatross, Ramsay racked up a bogey-6 and that came after he'd scribbled in a double-bogey 7 at 11, his second hole of the day. There was plenty of good stuff in there too and he splashed red at 15, 16, 17, 2, 5, 6 and 9. Ramsay, who has two top 10s in his last three European Tour starts, piped 9 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation.
