HAMBURG, Germany (AP) Maximilian Kieffer delighted home fans at the European Open with a 4-under 69 for a share of the lead after the first round.

The 32-year-old Kieffer, bidding to be the first German winner on home soil for 15 years, carded five birdies and an eagle – offset by three bogeys – to share a one-stroke lead with Simon Forsström on Thursday.

“It’s been a great day. On the front nine I holed two very long putts and one chip in from off the green which really got the round going,” Kieffer said.
