Threat of lightning stopped play for a period of time on day one of the BMW PGA Championship, so the first round is likely to spill over into Friday morning. The current leader in the clubhouse is James Kingston on -6, with Mikko Ilonen following close behind on -5. We analyse their performances.

James KINGSTON -6

While most other players (including many of the marquee names) were faltering on the back nine, James Kingston navigated his way home in 33 shots for an overall score of 66 (6 under Par) and a one shot lead. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 47 year old golfer from South Africa hit 9/14 fairways and 14/18 greens in regulation, plus he scrambled 3/4 times for Par when the green was missed and took just 26 putts in total.

Mikko ILONEN -5

Mikko Ilonen converted six birdies against one bogey on his way to a first round 67 in the cold and breezy conditions. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 33 year old golfer from Finland hit 9/14 fairways and 13/18 greens in regulation, plus he scrambled 4/5 times for Par when the green was missed and took 27 putts in total. The same as James Kingston, Mikko navigated his way around the Wentworth course keeping out of trouble for the most part (which is the key to playing this golf course).
