Eagle for Simon Dyson in KLM Open
JUST when he needed it York’s Simon Dyson rattled in an eagle to re-fuel his drive in the KLM Open.
The defending champion – he is one of only three players to have won the Dutch title three times – was struggling near the foot of the leaderboard with one hole to play.
Labouring on two-over par, the world number 48 then produced a scintillating three on the 499-yard par-five 18th at the Hilversumsche course in Holland.
That elevated him from a lowly position below the first 100 players to a healthy tied 46th place ahead of today’s second round as he strives to make history and win his fourth KLM crown and his seventh European Tour title.
A brace of bogeys on the first and third holes were followed by birdies on six and nine before another pair of dropped shots on the 14th and 15th holes.
