English golfer Ross McGowan shot an 8-under par 64 for a one-shot lead after the opening round of the Madrid Masters on Thursday.
McGowan, whose lone European Tour victory was in Madrid two years ago, leads Brett Rumford of Australia, Lorenzo Gagli of Italy and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain. Defending champion Luke Donald of England was four shots behind after shooting 68.
The 29-year-old McGowan says the key was "finding the right spots on the greens and holing the putts."
Donald blamed "careless mistakes" for his opening round score at the El Encin Golf Hotel course.
McGowan, ranked No. 492, carded 10 birdies _ including five in succession from the ninth hole _ for his best European Tour round in three years.
