European Tour 2021 - Austrian Open - Diamond Country Club - Round One

Canizares beats the cold to take the lead 

From the European Tour Report:

Alejandro Cañizares used all of his experience to card a gutsy round of 67 and take a one shot lead after day one of the 2021 Austrian Golf Open.

In very cold and sometimes windy conditions at Diamond Country Club, the Spaniard carded an eagle and four birdies with a single dropped shot to get to five under.

There was then 14 European Tour wins in the group a shot back, with two time Major Champion Martin Kaymer, two time winner in 2020 John Catlin and former Italian Open champion Rikard Karlberg at four under alongside South African Jacques Kruyswijk.

Cañizares was of one the European Tour's most consistent performers for a decade after winning just his fourth event in 2006 as an affiliate member, adding the Trophée Hassan II in 2014 either side of a win at the 2009 Qualifying School...

..."I'm very pleased," he said. "It was tough to keep focus - it's so cold. It was tough to feel the hands and that's very important."  Read more here
