Kinhult leads


WORLD number four Henrik Stenson made a solid start to his bid for a first European Tour title on home soil, but was upstaged by compatriot Marcus Kinhult, an 18-year-old amateur ranked 1,273rd.

Stenson carded a 70 in the Nordea Masters at PGA Sweden National to lie three shots behind Kinhult and fellow Swede Jens Dantorp, as well as England's Chris Paisley. Peter Lawrie is best of the Irish, tied in 13th place on three under. Gareth Maybin is next on level par, Michael Hoey two over, Kevin Phelan four over and Damien McGrane six over.
