Rozner set the pace in Italy
France’s Antoine Rozner shot low and signed for flawless 62, -8 during first round of Villaverde Open. His fellow country Grégoire Schoeb is one shot back, then a shot further Kiwi Shaun Jones and Netherlands’ Max Albertus.
« I am very happy with my day, I really played very well. I started from the 10th tee and the back nine is more complicated than front nine and I managed to handle it quite well. I was -1 heading back and I was already satisfied with this score because some holes are tricky.
Then from 1st to 9th, everything went well. I birdied all the pars 5, it helps for sure, and I holed really some good putts and at the end it’s a -8 signed for. It was a beautiful golfing day. I am very happy to start the tournament this way. »
The projected cut is -1.
