Round 1 of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship produced 105 sub-par rounds with field averages of 69.82 at St Andrews, 72.43 at Carnoustie and 69.18 at Kingsbarns. Mark Tullo, Alexandre Kaleka, Oliver Wilson, Tom Lewis and Richard Mcevoy lead on -8. We analyse their performances and round up the early Genworth Statistics leaders.

Tom LEWIS -8

Tom Lewis converted one eagle and seven birdies against one bogey on his way to a first round 64 at Kingsbarns. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 22 year old English talent ranked a little lower than expected for the long game categories, but he really excelled on and around the greens, ranking very high in each of the short game categories (note that he also hit three of the Par 5 greens in sub-regulation two shots, which makes his 25 putts in total all the more impressive).

Mark TULLO -8

Mark Tullo fired eight birdies during a bogey free first round 64 at St Andrews. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 35 year old golfer from Chile was very strong across the board, ranking 4th for Driving Distance (averaging 324 yards over the generous St Andrews fairways) and 1st for Greens in Regulation (one of six players to hit all 18 greens, three at St Andrews and three at Kingsbarns).

Alexandre KALEKA -8

Very similar to Tullo, Alexandre Kaleka converted eight birdies during a bogey free first round 64 at St Andrews, in which the 26 year old French golfer also drove the ball long and hit every Green in Regulation. In finishing the day with five birdies over the last six holes, Alexandre leads the Par 4 Scoring with a 3.50 average.

Oliver WILSON -8

Oliver Wilson converted one eagle and six birdies during a bogey free first round 64 at Kingsbarns. Unfortunately we are unable to display some of his Round 1 Genworth Statistics in this report, but we should highlight that the leading five players made just 3 bogeys between them over the first day’s play (that’s 90 holes in total). A special mention goes to Jamie Donaldson who shot the lowest score at Carnoustie (a 7 under par round of 65).

Richard MCEVOY -8

Richard McEvoy converted one eagle and eight birdies against two bogeys on his way to a first round 64 at St Andrews. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 34 year old English golfer was strong across the board, ranking 7th for Greens in Regulation and 3rd for Putts per GIR (a great combination highlighting accurate approach play), plus he scored exceptionally well across the different hole types (Par 3’s / Par 4’s / Par 5’s).
