Van Zyl shoots 61 to take lead at Turkish Airlines Open
ANTALYA, Turkey (AP) Jaco van Zyl made nine birdies and an eagle for an 11-under 61 Thursday to take a three-shot lead after the first round of the Turkish Airlines Open.
The South African's eagle came on the par-5 11th hole and he then added five birdies on the last six holes for a score that would have been a course record if not for preferred lies being used.
Lee Westwood was second after a bogey-free 64, his lowest score in more than a year.
Rory McIlroy made four birdies on his back nine and was in a group tied for fourth after a 67.
