O'Sullivan best in Kingdom

By Brian Keogh

Denis O'Sullivan leads the Irish contingent after the first round of the Kingdom of Bahrain Trophy at The Buckinghamshire.

The Cork ace, who will pass the €1 million mark this week, hit a one under par 71 to trail leaders John Chillas and Adan Sowa by four shots in a share of 15th place.

Des Smyth had to settle for a one over par 73 while Eamonn Darcy is tied for last place with Tommy Horton after a five over par 77.
