Thomas Pieters opened with a flawless eight-under 64

Daly, the 1991 PGA victor and 1995 British Open champion, shares the lead - and the course record - with 2015 Czech Masters champion Thomas Pieters of Belgium, England's Callum Tarren and Malaysian Gavin Green.

Two-time major victor John Daly, who had turned back the years with a 64 on Thursday, slipped back after posting a three-over 75.

Thomas Pieters and Eddie Pepperell pressed their Ryder Cup claims in style as two-time major champion John Daly rolled back the years in the D+D Real Czech Masters.

A week ago, Daly played at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open on the PGA Tour Champions, shooting a 73-77 before withdrawing prior to the final round on Sunday in upstate NY. "It really suits my eye off the tee and it's just a matter of making the putts over the rest of the week if I keep hitting it like that". I drove the ball really well.

New Australian PM knows NZ political psyche
The new foreign minister's big challenge will be navigating a tricky relationship with China, Australia's top trading partner. It added: "Be aware that this is a ruse trying to get her ahead of Morrison so he drops out and his votes go to Dutton".

"There were so many pins that were flawless yardages for me - comfortable shots all day long".

More to the point, this came just five days after he shot 73-77 ahead of withdrawing from the Champions Tour's Dick's Sporting Goods Open, a fifth withdrawal in his last ten starts (he has played all the rounds possible just three times in that stretch). It was the fourth senior event that he has WD'd mid-tournament this season (out of 11 official starts), a year in which he suffered a knee injury after being in an accident in which a auto hit the RV he was in selling merchandise during Masters week in Augusta. He needs to win the tournament to move into an automatic qualifying place for the Ryder Cup with one event left after this week.

Despite a storm delay of just over an hour during the afternoon, he kept the momentum going with three more gains on the inward journey to post his best European Tour score since 2009.
