STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Pedro Linhart was among the trio that shot 4-under-par 66 Thursday to share the lead after 18 holes at the European Tour's Scandinavian Masters in Stockholm.
The Spaniard joined England's Nick Doherty and Sweden's Peter Hanson by making pars on the final four holes.
"It's been a long while since I've had a round with no bogeys," Doherty said while watching Linhart from the clubhouse. "I've not played a good round in what feels like forever, but I played some really great golf out there."
Linhart's round included seven birdies and three bogeys, while Hanson closed with a bogey at 18 which cost him the outright overnight lead.
England's Peter Baker and Paul Broadhurst joined five others at 3-under 67, good for fourth place.
Finland's Mikko Ilonen, a two-stroke winner last season, opened with an even-par 70 to join a group of 17 golfers in 34th place.
