July 12, 2012 at 8:38 PM

INVERNESS, Scotland, July 12 (UPI) -- Francesco Molinari equaled the low round of his pro career with a 10-under 62 Thursday that gave him the lead at the Scottish Open.

Molinari finished second last week at the Open de France and had a sensational start in the final tune-up for next week's British Open.

"I know it's not going to last forever," Molinari said, "but I hope to keep this going a little bit longer -- obviously next week."

Alejandro Canizares birdied the final six holes at the Castle Stuart Golf Links to finish alone in second at 64. Soren Kjeldsen and Raphael Jacquelin shared third at 65.

World No. 1 Luke Donald posted a 67 that put him in a tie for 12th. Phil Mickelson, hoping to find his game prior to the start of the British Open, was in 123rd place after shooting a 73.
