Perfect conditions for the golfers at The Rolls of Monmouth on day one,with only a slight chill to contend with. Carl Kolloss from Loretto (Scotland) took full advantage of these conditions and shot an opening round of 69, one shot off the course record, Max Walz 75, Marvin Aurnhammer 74 and Nic Rey 76 set the competition off to a great start and put Lorretto after the first days play in a confident 17 shot lead over second place Millfield (England).
