Daly, playing on a sponsor’s invite, started his round at Albatross Golf Resort with three-straight birdies and added two more on Nos. 6 and 9 to turn in 31. Going home, the 52-year old American made gains on Nos. 11, 12 and 18 to secure a share of the lead in Prague, Czech Republic.

β€œIt’s been one of those years where I’ve been hitting it really good, I’ve just been injured and having to pull out,” said Daly, a two-time major champion.

β€œI don’t feel great but I got around today and I just played solid golf and it’s great. It feels good. It was just one of those days where the yardages into the greens were so perfect it made it a little easier.

“It was a very comfortable swinging round today and if I can do that every day, the injuries don’t tend to hurt as much.”
