YORK-BORN Simon Dyson today opened his campaign on the BMW PGA Championship in Wentworth alongside a brace of leading Scandinavian players.

The 36-year-old Dyson was paired with Sweden’s Alex Noren and Soren Kjeldsen from Denmark.

Dyson, now ranked 187th in the world, will be bidding to quickly get back to the form that brought him a clutch of top tens and five top 20 finishes this season, but which eluded him when he crashed out at the midway cut of last week’s Spanish Open.
