David Carey had a 10 while Brendan McCarroll racked up every number from 2 to 7 in the opening round of the Alps Tour's Open Colli Berici in Vicenza.

McCarroll had four birdies, five bogeys, a double bogey and a triple in a six over 77 at Colli Berici Golf Club, midway between Verona and Venice. Scores

Rookie pro Carey had an even more forgettable day, posing an 11 over 82 featuring a tournament ending quintuple bogey 10 at the 453-yard, par-five eighth

England's Tom Shadbolt and Switzerland's Arthur Gabella fired eight under 63s  on a day of low scoring in hills near Vicenza to lead by two strokes from Josh Lourghey, Liam Haper and Spain’s Gerard Piris on a course more suited to the precision iron strikers and wedge experts than the big hitters.
