Warm but very blustery conditions for Round 1 of the Trophée Hassan II produced a field average score of 75.65. But while so many struggled Marcel Siem excelled, jumping out in front with an amazing round of 64. We analyse how he did it plus we round up the early leaders of the Genworth Statistics.

Marcel SIEM -8

Marcel Siem enjoyed one of those memorable days where everything just went right. He holed a 5 iron at the 3rd for an eagle and then canned back to back greenside bunker shots on the 17th and 18th to finish with a 64. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 32 year old German talent hit 76.9% of the fairways in regulation and 66.7% of the greens in regulation. He led the Par 4 Scoring with a 3.38 average and produced some amazing short game and putting statistics as a result of the three holed shots. Looking forward, a win this week could gain Marcel entry into The Masters.
