Local knowledge proved the key ingredient for Dimitri Bieri when he carded a course record seven-under-par 64 to head the field after the first round of the 54-hole Neuchâtel Open Trophy in Switzerland.

The 26-year-old Swiss is attached to the Neuchâtel club so it is virtually his second home. It leaves him two strokes clear of Germany's Erol Simsek and Londoner Gary Marks after trimming a shot off the previous record.

Sweden's Joakim Gronhagen, Tim Huyton, a British professional based in Switzerland, and England's Shaun Webster are on 67, while among those a further shot back is Juan Ciola, the Swiss who won the Diners Club Austrian Open three weeks ago, his maiden Challenge Tour victory.
