Levy's nine-under 63 leads Volvo China Open

Alexander Levy fired a brilliant nine-under-par 63 to set the clubhouse target on day one of the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf and Country Club, Chinese Taipei.
Levy captured his maiden European Tour title in 2014 at this event when it was held in Shenzhen - where he finished in a tie for eighth last week - and was bogey-free as he moved his way up the leaderboard on Thursday morning.
Pablo Larrazábal, also bogey-free, carded an opening round 64 to sit one shot off the pace, the Spaniard holing a 45-foot putt on the third to set the tone for the rest of the morning as the pair went birdie for birdie.
Five players find themselves in a share of third with Swede Peter Hanson, England's James Morrison, and France’s Raphaël Jacquelin, joined by South African duo Dean Burmester and George Coetzee on five under par.
Englishman Anthony Wall - making his 500th European Tour start this week - recorded a one under par 71, meanwhile American Ryan Dillon finished with a five over par 77 but was left celebrating the 14th hole-in-one of the season on the European Tour as he holed a seven iron from 180 yards on the 13th.
