Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

HONG KONG — The 2019 European Tour got underway on Thursday with Aaron Rai, Jason Scrivener and Yusaku Miyazato shooting 5-under 65s to share the lead after the first round of the Hong Kong Open.They were already 10 strokes ahead of Masters champion Patrick Reed, who made four bogeys and a double bogey in a 75 — a week after contending at the World Tour Championship in Dubai.Tommy Fleetwood missed out on a second straight Race to Dubai title last week and he began his latest bid to become Europe’s No. 1 by shooting 69.Sergio Garcia shot 70.Rai and Scrivener reached the turn at 1 under, only to find some hot form with the putter in the back nine as they benefited from favourable afternoon conditions following a breezy start to the day.An approach to within a few inches of the cup, setting up a tap-in eagle at No. 13, was the highlight of Rai’s round.Scrivener picked up four shots in five holes from the 12th.___More AP golf: https://apnews.com/apf-Golf and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsThe Associated Press
