Sandy Lyle best European so far in Japan's Handa Cup

On a cold and blustery day in Tokyo, Japan, Sandy Lyle fared best of the European Senior Tour contingent on the opening day of the Handa Cup.
The Scot shot a one over par round of 73 at Skyway Country, on the outskirts of the Japanese capital, to finish two shots behind joint leaders Yutaka Hagawa, Toyotake Nakao and Massy Kuramoto, all of whom posted 71s.
The next best European was Welshman Ian Woosnam on three over par, whilst the man who pipped him to the John Jacobs Trophy, his fellow former Ryder Cup Captain Sam Torrance of Scotland, struggled to a nine over par round of 81.
England’s D J Russell was two shots better off, while Wayne Grady sits in a tie for 40th place on five over par.
