Warren Celebrates 100th KLM Open With Lowest Score In Nine Months

Struggling Scot Marc Warren put aside a wretched season to record a lowest round in some nine months on day one of the 100th anniversary KLM Open in Amsterdam.

Warren snatched seven birdies in a five-under 67 to be in a group of seven just a shot behind England’s Callum Shinkwin, who was runner-up in the 2017 Scottish Open at Dundonald Links.

Warren’s score is his lowest since a similar 67 on day two of last December’s Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa.

The 38-year old Glaswegian arrived into Holland having made the cut in the 2018/19 wraparound European Tour season in just four of 17 events.

In fact, since finishing well down in last April’s Hassan 11 Trophy in Morocco he’s not made a cut in his ensuing 10 events.

Included in the former triple Tour winner’s horror run was being disqualified from last May’s British Masters and also last fortnight’s European Masters.

And with just Stg 30,000 in earnings this season, it is currently Warren’s worst since joining the Tour full-time in 2006.

Warren had won back his full Tour card at last November’s Tour School and at currently 220th on the Race to Dubai money list the struggling Scot is headed back to the Tour School unless he can break into the top-115.

Scott Jamieson also grabbed seven birdies in a four-under par 68 while former Masters champ, Patrick Reed signed for a level par 72.
