German amateur Sebastian Schwind leads the way on home soil at European Tour Destination Golf & Country Club Fleesensee in one of the two First Qualifying Stage Section B events.

Two eagles in his first 18 holes were the foundation for Schwind’s six under par score, and he leads by a stroke from seven players in a tie for second.

John Hahn is one of those a shot adrift of the leading German, after seven birdies and a couple of dropped shots on Tuesday, as he looks to carry on the form that saw the American make his Major Championship debut at the US Open earlier this year.

There are another two amateurs also going well at Fleesensee, with Denmark’s Mads Soegaard and Martin Keskari both in a tie for ninth at four under par.

It is a particularly congested leaderboard in Germany with 22 players within three strokes of the lead, and those in 24th place and ties set to qualify from the 101 man field.
