4-way tie for lead at Euro Tour's Trophee Hassan II

RABAT, Morocco (AP) Gary Stal, Gregory Havret, James Morrison, and Lucas Bjerregaard made 3-under-par 70s to share the lead after the first round of the European Tour's Trophee Hassan II in Morocco on Thursday.

Stal was the early pacesetter while Havret and Morrison also made five birdies and two bogeys to be part of the leading group at the Royal Dar Es Salam club.

Bjerregaard's adventurous round included an eagle, six birdies, and five bogeys.

Former Ryder Cup player Edoardo Molinari birdied his last two holes to move a shot off the lead. He was one of nine players on 2 under and just a shot behind.
