Michael Stewart leading Scot with a 72 at EuroPro Tour Championship on Algarve

Adam Chapman shot an excellent four-under par (68) to hold a one-shot lead heading into the second round of the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour Sky Sports Tour Championship on the Algarve.

The leading Scot is Michael Stewart (Troon Welbeck), joint sixth with a 72. Michael is pictured on right
Sean Lawrie (Paul Lawrie Golf Centre) is T22 with a 75.
Conor O'Neill (Mearns Castle Golf Academy is T38 with a 78
John Henry (Clydebank and District) is T51 with an 81
Chapman (Carus Green Golf Club) collected five birdies and just a single bogey on a day which saw only five players finish under par.
Race To Amendoeria leader Chris Lloyd withdrew from play just minutes before his tee time, providing ample opportunity for the likes of MK Kim (Golfmind Korea) and Nick Marsh (Huddersfield Golf Club) to launch a late attack for the Order of Merit top spot.
However, none of the other top five golfers in the Order of Merit shot under-par first rounds which Lloyd will be pleased to see.
Strong winds of almost 40mph from mid-day onwards meant scores stayed well above par for the majority of the field, but not in Chapman’s case.
“I got off to good a start, three-under par after six holes. I hit the ball really well, and only dropped a shot on the 7th.”: said Chapman, who is seeking his first win on the EuroPro Tour this season.
He added: “I feel like everything came together really well today, I probably had about two and half holes with little wind, but soon after it picked up and it was a struggle from then onwards.”
On the prospect of winning in Amendoeira Chapman said: “It would mean the world to me, I’ve been pretty disappointed with my season so far so a win here would make things a lot better.”
Highlights from the Sky Sports Tour Championship at Amendoeira Golf Resort will air on Sky Sports Golf in November
