Three blues in the top 10, Forsström in the lead in Antwerp

Winner of the European cards this fall, the Swede Simon Forsström takes pole position at the Soudal Open, in Belgium, after this first round. Alone in the lead, the 34-year-old has completed a bogey-free run with 7 birdies on the clock: ” Everything went very well. I played pretty consistently, made a lot of cuts and a few top 10s. I can’t wait to see the rest of the season and see what I can do. I always liked playing in Belgium when we played here on the Challenge Tour. I like the course because it’s narrow and not too long, so it should suit me well. When I saw it on the practice lap I was very happy with the course, I’m glad I got to enjoy it today. »

He is closely followed by his compatriot Jens Dantorp at -6. The Swede is accompanied by the British Andrew Wilson and James Morrison – also author of a faultless course – as well as the German Marcel Siem, author of his fifth victory last February, in India.

Behind them, at -5, they are eight to share 6th place. There are three Tricolores, including Félix Mory and Frédéric Lacroix who made no bogeys on this first round and a total of 5 birdies each. Jeong weon Ko also returned a card of 66 by making 9 birdies and 4 bogeys on the Rinkven golf course. They are alongside the Japanese Ryo Hisatsune, the Spaniard Alejandro Del Rey, the Dane Søren Kjeldsen as well as the Swedes Alexander Björk and Marcus Kinhult who close this top 10.
