Bjerregaard, Evans share lead at windy Sicilian Open

Round One Report
Lucas Bjerregaard and Ryan Evans mastered the windy conditions at Verdura Golf Club to share the lead after round one of the Rocco Forte Sicilian Open.
Bjerregaard had set the target at six under in the morning and with high winds for the later starters in Italy, it looked like he would take a solo lead into Friday. 
The Dane has missed five of his first seven cuts this season but finished sixth at the Volvo China Open last month and now feels his game is going in the right direction as he looks to add to his maiden European Tour title at last season's Portugal Masters.
Englishman Evans had other ideas, making four birdies to edge up the leaderboard and then eagling the par five ninth to join the Dane and lead the way by two shots from English trio Marcus Armitage, Daniel Brooks and Andy Sullivan, Brazilian Adilson da Silva and Spaniard Scott Fernandez at four under.
Da Silva was one of the few afternoon starters to get close to the lead, birdieing the 11th, 14th, 17th and second, with his only bogey coming at the sixth before he bounced back on the eighth.
South African Thomas Aiken, England's Steven Brown, Frenchmen Julien Guerrier and Sébastien Gros, Norway's Kristian Krogh Johannessen and South Korean Eunshin Park were then at three under.
