Round 1 of the Portugal Masters produced 68 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 70.19. Donaldson, Quiros, Lynn, Thornton, Aguilar, Kieffer and Storm lead on -6. We analyse their performances and round up the early Genworth Statistics leaders.

Jamie DONALDSON -6

Jamie Donaldson converted seven birdies against one bogey on his way to an opening 65, to follow on from his solid performance at the Seve Trophy last week. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, although the 37 year old English golfer only hit 6/14 fairways, he average 317 yards for Driving Distance and hit 16/18 Greens in Regulation (plus two of the Par 5 greens in sub regulation two shots).

Alvaro QUIROS -6

Alvaro Quiros converted eight birdies (the most of the day alongside Felipe Aguilar and Marcel Siem) against two bogeys on his way to an opening 65. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 30 year old Spanish golfer drove the ball miles as usual but he also had his eye in on the greens, ranking very high in each of the putting categories. The six-time European Tour winner may well be finding some late season form.

David Lynn converted seven birdies against one bogey on his way to an opening 65, following on from a steady 2/4 points at last week’s team event. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 39 year old English golfer ranked quite low for the Diving categories but he still managed to hit lots of greens, plus the short game and putting was very sharp (his performance on the Par 3’s and par 5’s was exceptional).
