Solaire Philippine Open 2018 – Day 1

Blustery conditions for round one at The Country Club, Laguna, Philippines, south of Manila meant the scoring for the first round of the Solaire Philippines Open was tough. Not many beat par in the morning session, although Amin Nazrin of Malaysia, Jay Bayron, the leading Filipino for the day and Australian veteran David Gleeson all flirted with red figures before dropping shots late in the round. Conditions eased in the afternoon, with last year’s champion Stephen Lewton once again showing his liking for the course. Mardan Mamat produced the shot of the day almost holing out at the signature 17th hole to finish the day at two-under alongside Thailand’s Prom Meesawat at the top of the leaderboard.
