England’s Richard Bland goes for 2 in row

After posting his 1st victory on European Tour in his 478th career start, Englishman shares lead at Made in Himmerland event

3: Score, an eagle, that England’s Richard Bland posted late in his round Thursday to grab a share of the lead at the European Tour’s Made in Himmerland event in Farso, Denmark. Bland, who started on the back nine at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, had just followed two consecutive birdies with a bogey at the par-4 seventh hole, his 16th of the day, before regaining some momentum with the eagle. Only two weeks ago, the 48-year-old Bland, in his 478th career start and most recent appearance on the European Tour, won for the first time, at the Betfred British Masters. Bland signed for a 5-under 66 in Denmark, joining South Korea’s Yikeun Chan, Spain’s Pablo Larrazabal, Finland’s Lauri Ruuska and Austria's Bernd Wiesberger atop the leaderboard.
