"I've not been playing great the past few weeks so it feels really good to start with an eight under," said Sordet, a four-time winner on the Challenge Tour. The game feels really nice and I'm really looking forward to this week.

"I hit some really good shots. I birdied the first and then I hit it close on the next three holes, so that helps. I wasn't really focusing on the score, I was just enjoying it. It wasn't easy out there, there was a lot of wind and I'm glad I shot eight under."

Jamieson, by his own admission, is also in a "sticky situation" as he currently sits 126th in the Race to Dubai, with only the top 110 retaining their European Tour cards for the following season.

But the Scot lifted his spirits with a 64 containing nine birdies, eight of them coming in a classy 11-hole stretch, although he also blotted his card with three bogeys.

"It was great, 64 sounds better than six under so I like the sound of that," said Jamieson, who bogeyed the sixth - his 15th - and dropped another shot at the next after a visit to the water hazard.

"On seven I never thought it was going in the water, but five was the one I got lucky on, I caught a gust and came up a little short but it held the bank, it didn't go in the water. Seven has been playing really tough so a five on that hole is not too bad today.
