European Tour 2021 - Canary Islands Championship at Golf Costa Adege, 6-9 May
Francesco Laporta carded the lowest round of his European Tour career to hit the front after day one of the 2021 Canary Islands Championship.
The Italian was a picture of consistency last week at Golf Costa Adeje as he went 68-67-67-71 but he showed he had truly found his feet in the final event of the Canary Islands Swing, posting a 62 to get to nine under and lead by one from home favourite Scott Fernandez.
There were then two more Spaniards in Adri Arnaus and Alfredo Garcia-Heredia at seven under alongside Frenchman Joël Stalter.
Laporta triggered the second 59 Watch of the day as he got to nine under after 14 holes but parred his way in to card his best round of the 2021 Race to Dubai by five shots. Read more here
Laporta was low, Enoch was fast, Arnaus was happy and Garcia-Heredia was reflective on the opening day of the 2021 Canary Islands Championship. Here is everything you need to know from Thursday on Tenerife.
Strongly recommend the Day One Digest. Fantastic photos from around the course and sparks of insight from all over. Scott Hend gets a mention, though rather than for his game it's for his wardrobe :)
