Lucas Bjerregaard moved into the clubhouse lead midway through the opening day of the inaugural Kharkov Superior Cup as the Dane carded a five under 67 over the tricky lay-out at Superior Golf and Spa Resort.

The Dane played in the final group at last week’s Open Blue Green Côtes d'Armor Bretagne but struggled in the final round and finished tied for 11th spot. 

He picked off from where he left off in France with a bogey at the tenth, his first, but managed to turn things around and return to the form that moved him into contention last week as three successive birdies from the 12th hole took him to the turn in two under.

Bjerregaard then carded an eagle at the fourth hole before holing out from a greenside bunker at the difficult fifth hole to move into the lead.

“The course is in great shape,” said the 22 year old, who won the Nordic Golf League Rankings last year to qualify for the Challenge Tour. “It’s a tricky course because there are holes where you think you can make easy birdies but there are a couple of tough pins out there and you still have to hit good shots.

“I played solid all day and I was really hoping to make birdie at the ninth but other than that I hit a lot of greens and hit good drives at tough holes to get into good positions to make par. All in all, a really good day.”

There were three players a shot behind Bjerregaard on four under par – Australian Terry Pilkadaris, Charles-Edouard Russo of France and Englishman Steven Tiley.
