Lawrie and Lowry make hay in Spanish sun
Peter Lawrie and Shane Lowry kept surprise leader Scott Jamieson in their sights as they made positive starts in the Spanish Open at Real Club de Golf El Prat near Barcelona.
Steady Lawrie, seeking just his second tour victory following his maiden win in this event in 2008, recovered from a bogey six at his opening hole and putted well from short range to fire five birdies in a four under 68 that left him two off the lead in a share of sixth.
Lowry finished like a train after a slow start, rattling off five birdies in his final six holes for a three under 69.
