Oh and Flint lead the way
Ted Oh and Gavin Flint shared the first-round lead at the Brunei Open after carding 64s on Thursday.
Ted Oh and Gavin Flint shared the first-round lead at the Brunei Open after carding 64s at the Empire Hotel and Country Club today (Thursday).
Korean Oh sank five birdies and an eagle at the 15th, but missed makeable birdie putts at the second and the fourth which would have seen him top the leaderboard outright.
“I’m playing well and I’m giving myself a lot of chances out there,” said the 32-year-old.
“But I’m not taking enough of them and I feel I can do better. I’m doing well on those tough ones, but letting those easy ones slip by. I’m sure I’ll get better.”
Flint, meanwhile, recorded seven birdies in his seven-under effort and the then admitted he was surprised to shoot such a low score.
“I haven’t been playing too well so today was a bit of a shock,” the Australian said.
“I hit the ball better and I putted well. I just want to stay consistent and hopefully have more birdies.”
Boonchu Ruangkit, Lu Chien-soon and Mardan Marmat are tied for third, a shot off the pace with a further five players on five under.
