Robert-Jan Derksen on top after Avantha Masters first round

Robert-Jan Derksen is out in front following the completion of the fog-delayed first round of the Avantha Masters.

The Dutchman was sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard in his golf clothing following a six-under-par round of 66 on Thursday (February 17th), before fog meant play was delayed and some players had to complete their round today (Friday February 18th).

But Darren Beck, his most likely challenger, failed to continue the good form which saw him reach five under par after 13 holes.

The Australian bogeyed the fifth - his 14th hole - and although he fought back to briefly enjoy a share of the lead, he dropped a shot on the last to finish with a credible 67.

He had Mark Foster, Julio Zapata and Rafael Cabrera-Bello for company in joint-second place.

Meanwhile, another Dutchman made his move this morning, with Joost Luiten gaining a share of third place after going round in 68.

Defending champion Andrew Dodt finished his first round some way off the pace with a 71.
