SCOTLAND’S David Law leads the Cordon Golf Open by two shots at the Golf Blue Green de Pléneuf Val André after a late start to round one meant he closed with one hole still to play.

Play was delayed for three hours after six greens were vandalised overnight, a knock-on effect being that the afternoon starters were unable to complete their first rounds.

Law managed 17 holes before darkness fell, making six birdies to top the leaderboard on six under par.

“I’ve been playing well for the last few weeks and this course is a great place to play,” said the 24-year-old. “My long game was excellent and my putting was also great.

“I made my first birdie on the third hole thanks to a nice putt. On the 17th I sank a 20ft putt for birdie and it was great to end my day on that positive point.”

Of those in the clubhouse it was Law’s compatriot Jack Doherty who led the way, his four-under-par round of 66 featuring five birdies and an eagle.
