Alvaro Velasco leads after opening 64
May 11, 2012

Alvaro Velasco of Spain shot an 8-under 64 Thursday to lead after the opening round of the Madeira Islands Open.

Oliver Wilson of England had six birdies in a 66, joining five others behind Velasco.

Velasco's 64 included nine birdies - four straight from the ninth hole - and one bogey. He had the fewest putts (25) on the mountainous Santo da Serra course.

''I played very consistent all day long and gave myself a lot of birdie chances,'' Velasco said. ''It's been a long time since I played this well. I didn't realize I had four birdies in a row as I was just so focused.''

Also at 6 under were Tommy Fleetwood, Ben Parker, Morten Orum Madsen, Magnus Carlsson and Joakim Largergren.
