Sweden Lead European Team Championship for Golfers with Disability

Sweden have taken the lead in the European Team Championship for Golfers with Disability at Real Novo Sancti Petri, Spain.

Ramus Lia & Joakim Bjorkman carded the lowest score in the Day 1 foursomes, making two birdies to shoot a five-over-par 77. Their teammates, Johan Kammerstad and Marcus Malo, returned a nine-over-par 81 to place the team on top of the leaderboard heading into the Day 2 greensomes with an aggregate total of 14-over-par.

Defending champions, France, also got off to a steady start. They sit four shots back in second place after a 79 (+7) from Charles-Henri Quelin & Pierjean Frison, and an 83 (+11) from Philippe Pee & Mathieu Cauneau.

The English team sits four shots further back in third place after scoring rounds of 80 (+8) and 86 (+14).

In the Nations' Cup, an event which holds an identical format but with net stableford scores, the hosts, Spain, are currently on top of a very tight leaderboard.

Adolfo Lena & Andres Pintado tied the best score of the day, making three net birdies on their way to a score of 31, while their teammates, Angel Muras and Alberto Nunez, scored 26 stableford points leave Spain's total on 57.

England are just one point behind in second position after scores of 29 and 27, while the Czech Republic sit in third place on 55 points with scores of 28 and 27.
