Bjerregaard had 11 birdies, scoring 10-under-62. He opened Round 1 with a 67, only improving later on. “My putter might be the most valuable thing in Scotland right now,Bjerregaard said. “I’ve never putted like that and I’m not sure I’ve seen anyone putt like that. That was pretty special, I’m a happy man right now”. 

The course record was initially set by Calum Hill, who had done so with 9-under-par 63 a day earlier. As Round 3 picks up, Calum Hill could regain the top spot on the leaderboard. However, even Scotland’s Grant Forrest is off to an incredible start, maybe even beating Hill in Round 3.
