KLM OPEN: Howell makes flying start
IN-FORM David Howell is tied for the clubhouse lead at the KLM Open in the Netherlands following a superb opening round today.
The 38-year-old Swindonian fired a five-under-par 65 at Kennemer Golf & Country Club and is level with Irishman Damien McGrane, Spain's Pablo Larrazabal and Paraguay's Fabrizio Zanotti.
Howell, who admitted to concerns over a toe problem in the lead-up to the event, made gains at regular intervals with three birdies between 13 and 17 giving his card a swift boost.
The last European Tour title won by the Broome Manor pro was the BMW Championship back in 2006.
