2009 European TourGIRONA, Spain ' Coming back from a six-month PGA suspension, John Daly shot a 70 in the first round of the Spanish Open to trail leader Soren Hansen by seven strokes.
Hansen had nine birdies and an eagle at the PGA Golf de Catalunya course on Thursday to overcome an early double-bogey and lead Thomas Levet (64) by one. Jose Manuel Lara and Callum Macaulay were tied for third at 65.
Daly sported a slimmed down look and a new swing, but knew he was going to be rusty.
I hit it pretty good but didnt make a lot of putts, the 43-year-old American said.
He is tied for 45th at the European Tour event.
Daly said his coach advised him to avoid setting any goals this year.
Just let it happen and try and work on the things, Daly said. If I keep doing it and doing it, something good will happen.
