Søren Kjeldsen suffered a walk-off bogey-6 at 18 but a 2-under-par 33-36=69 was enough to secure a share of the clubhouse lead on day one of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.
The Dane managed to hit 14 greens in regulation in the cold and blustering conditions at Royal County Down and that paved the way for a rare sub-70 lap on the iconic links. For now he's tied for the lead with England's Danny Willett and Argentine Emiliano Grillo. Kjeldsen started fast with three birdies in his first six holes. He wobbled with bogeys at 9 and 10 but got those shots back at 12 and 16 to climb back to 3-under. He split 9 (of 14) fairways and was 3-for-4 in scrambling, the only time he failed to get up and down coming at the last, the resulting bogey denying him the lead on his own. May 28 - 9:04 AM

Søren Kjeldsen had more birdies than pars on his card in a first-round 4-under-par 35-33=68 at the Trophee Hassan II.

That count was eight to seven while two bogeys and a double bogey-5 filled out a colourful scorecard. Add it all up though and the Dane currently sits in a tie for fifth place and just three off the pace. Kjeldsen split 10 (of 13) fairways and found 13 greens in regulation. His usually tidy short game was a little off as he went just 2-for-5 in scrambling. Last year, the veteran finished outside the top 100 in the Race to Dubai for the first time since his rookie season in 1998. He's just 2-for-7 on the European Tour in 2015 so today's opener is encouraging.

Soren Kjeldsen posted a 4-under-par 68 in the opening round of the BMW International Open.

Kjeldsen hasn't updated his blog since withdrawing from the U.S. Open, but he's obviously fit enough to play again, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead. If he's able to control his ear infection, he could be a sleeper at the British Open.

Soren Kjeldsen is listed in the published field of next week's BMW International Open in Germany.

Normally, we wouldn't post this news, but the Dane is eligible for the British Open and has fantasy value in fantasy formats that incorporate the European Tour. He hasn't updated his web site since withdrawing from the U.S. Open on Wednesday with an ear infection. Stay tuned for the next update.

Soren Kjeldsen withdrew from the U.S. Open today, citing an ear infection.

Based on information we relayed last night, this is not surprising. On his web site, Kjeldsen wrote, "At the moment I am devastated to withdraw but the way I feel right now there is no way I could complete a round of golf. I am really looking forward to get this fixed and return to playing golf." Steven Conway or Murrieta, California will replace the Dane and play alongside Soren Hansen and Peter Hanson in the late-early draw.

Soren Kjeldsen wrote on his web site that he's taking antibiotics to relieve water in both inner ears, but it has left him weak.

"I saw the Doctor at the US Open and he send [sic] me to an ear specialist," Kjeldsen wrote. "After having had a good cleaning of my ears, which he hoped would do it, he realised that I had water in both inner ears." The golfer chose medicine over a surgical procedure for relief. "The antibiotics seemed the preferable treatment but the doctor was in doubt whether one of the ingridients [sic] in the medicin [sic] consisted of an illigal [sic] doping item. Fortunately the antibiotics was ok and I have now started a cure that hopefully will help within 1-2 weeks." But right now, it's affecting his game. "I can only hit my driver 210 meters and after an hour on the practice green or driving range I'm totally wasted - not like me at all."
