Lam springs back to share lead in India
Lam birdied the last hole to join the Australian duo of Kieran Pratt and Wade Ormsby in a three-way tie at the top of the first-round leaderboard with a bogey at the 12th the only blot in his otherwise strong five-under 67.
“Losing my Tour card last season was disappointing but I hope to make it up this season with performances like this,” said the 36-year-old Lam, who is eyeing his second win in Asia.
“It wasn’t easy out there. The winds were swirling and I got lucky quite a few times today.”
The only Scot in the field, James Byrne, is six shots off the pace after carding an opening round of 73.
