David Lynn Hopes To Rediscover Form At Portugal Masters

This week the European Tour returns to Oceanico Victoria Golf Club for the annual Portugal Masters.

12 months ago it was David Lynn who was on top of the world after winning this event, but unfortunately it was the last time he won, and he is hoping that he can rediscover his form as his highest victory since is 21st place at the Omega European Masters last month.

Lynn’s form has taken an alarming dip in 2014, and playing on both sides of the Atlantic has probably not helped him as he has struggled to find consistency in his swing.

Another player searching for some form this week is Francesco Molinari who has a good record at this event, and he will be looking to put the disappointment of missing out on his third Ryder Cup in a row with a win here this week.


Francesco Molinari Sets Castle Stuart On Fire

The Sottish  Open began this morning in fairly calm but fresh conditions in Inverness. There were a lot of scores under par but one player was making it look easy. That player was Francesco Molinari, the Italian continued his magnificent form to set the clubhouse target at ten under par during the first round at Castle Stuart.

Molinari made ten birdies in a bogey-free round and flawless round of golf. He had an amazing run making nine birdies in eleven holes and never looked like missing a putt at one stage.

Luke Donald who is defending the title this week began with a five under par 67, the World Number One did get to seven under himself with five to play – that after six birdies in seven holes – but he bogeyed two of the last four.

Molinari is on course to retain his Ryder Cup spot after last weekend, and leads by three from Soren Kjeldsen and by four from Robert Coles.

Will the wind get up tomorrow and bring the field closer together? Will Molinari’s form continue? Make sure you tune in to find out!
