The Old Continent circuit moved from Austria to the English course of Newcastle upon Tyne: David Law is at the top after recording 64 strokes.
He European Tour lives its third week after four months of impasse due to the coronavirus pandemic: this Thursday the dispute of the British Masters in Newcastle upon Tyne and it was David Law who registered the best card.
The Scottish, number 470 in the world ranking and who achieved his only title on this circuit at the ISPS Handa Vic Open in February 2019, signed 64 strokes with seven birdies and without errors, to lead in 7 under par.
His immediate pursuers in the Close House GC are the English Oliver Fisher, the Italian Renato Paratore and also Garrick Porteous (all -6), together with the Canadian Aaron Cockerill, the Portuguese Pedro Figueiredo, the Danish Rasmus Hojgaard and the British Lee Slattery ( -5).
After two weeks of tournaments in Austria, where the English Marc Warren and the French Joël Stalter shouted champions, this time action moves to English soil, where he will have two contests in a row.
Unlike the PGA Tour, which was relaunched 40 days ago, the Old Continent circuit took its time but is already on the scene again in its eagerness to complete the affected 2020 calendar and leave months of inactivity behind.
