7 JULY, 2022 - DP WORLD TOUR: Cameron Tringale shot a course record equalling round of 61 to lead a star-studded field - which includes 14 of the top 15 players in the world - after round one of the Genesis Scottish Open.

The American took advantage of kind early conditions when he teed off in the third Rolex Series event of 2022 - the first tournament to be co-sanctioned by the DP World Tour and PGA TOUR - and was three shots clear of his closest challenger, Major winner Gary Woodland, at the end of an entertaining day.

After four straight pars to settle himself in, Tringale birdied nine of the next 11 holes. Every part of his game seemed to be working as he was in close with most of his approaches and when he was not, a 38-footer dropped at the eighth and another long one found the bottom of the cup at the 11th, before he closed his bogey-free nine under round with three pars. “Golf is more fun when the putts are going in, and they were for me today. I had a great group of guys to play with and it was relaxed. Everyone more or less had some good shots, and the vibe was good in our group no doubt" SAID THE AMERICAN.

“I think I'm pretty creative when it comes to the shots around the greens and being able to visualise and imagine shots that are not traditional for us in the States. I just think it's so much fun to have that kind of optionality and to have fun with those shots. There's probably five ways you can play most shots. It's fun to be an artist out here. In that respect, I like my chances here.

“Hard to learn when you have such a great day by I definitely learned the last couple days just how strong the wind is, like how much it's moving the ball, particularly side-to-side and the crosswinds. So that was one thing that I was able to navigate pretty well today. Obviously continue to hope to do more of that.
Justin Harding sits in third place, four off the lead, while three players - Rasmus Højgaard, Mito Pereira and Kurt Kitayama - are one shot further back on four under.

Ewen Ferguson is the leading Scot alongside seven other players on three under par, with Major winners Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose amongst the group at two under par.
