Ruaidhri McGee (EuropeanTour)
Ruaidhri McGee got his bid for a European Tour card off to the ideal start at Wychwood Park to streak three strokes clear of the chasing pack after round one of the First Qualifying Stage Section B.

The Irishman carded six birdies on Tuesday to fire an opening score of 66 in England’s North West, with William Harrold alone in second place, a shot clear of a quartet of players in a tie for third.

In the group four shots adrift of McGee is Challenge Tour professional Matt Haines, who enters the week coming off his best performance of the season just a fortnight ago at the Open Blue Green Côtes d'Armor Bretagne where he finished in a tie for fourth.

Haines is a stroke ahead of fellow former European Tour player Tom Whitehouse, who is in a share of seventh alongside 2011 Walker Cup player Paul Cutler.

Former Amateur Champion Alan Dunbar is in a tie for 19th place after an opening round of 73, with 22nd place and ties progressing to Stage Two, to be played in November.
