Australia's Wade Ormsby took a one-shot lead at the Scandinavian Invitation after the opening round at the Hills Golf Club Thursday.
Ormsby, 39, shot six birides and an eagle on the way to carding a first-round 62 to clinch a solo lead after 18 holes. The Australian, whose only European Tour event victory came at the Hong Kong Open in 2017, holed out from 196 yards with a 4-iron on the 14th hole and finished the day at eight under par.
Ormsby's turned professional in 2001 but his only appearance at a major tournament came at the 2017 U.S. Open, where he did not make the cut.
Last year's winner Paul Waring got off to a good start for a second consecutive year to finish tied ninth going into Day 2.
