US star leads in Oman

28th February 2019, 16:05 by Nick Harris

American Kurt Kitayama has taken a one-shot lead after a bogey-free round of 66 on the first day of the Oman Open.

The 26-year-old, who picked up his first tour win at the Mauritius Open late last year, coped well with the windy conditions to lead by one shot from Scott Jamieson and Yusaku Miyazato.

"Conditions were pretty tough, so to be bogey-free was really good," he told the European Tour. "My putting was great, I had great speed. I made a few putts outside 10 feet, so that was really nice."

A group of seven players sit on four-under including Belgian Thomas Pieters, Spaniard Alejandro Canizares, Englishman David Horsey and Scott Vincent from Zimbabwe.
