Callum Shinkwin: Englishman leads Czech MastersSeptember 1, 2017
England’s Callum Shinkwin is leading the D+D Real Czech Masters, the first qualifying event for next year’s Ryder Cup.
The world number 159 carded an opening 66 after he putted eight birdies and two bogeys at Albatross Golf Resort.
Shinkwin lost in a play-off to Rafa Cabrera Bello in July’s Scottish Open before missing the cut at the Open Championship the same month.
He leads fellow Briton James Heath – one of three players one off the lead.
