England’s Max Orrin shares the lead with Italy’s Renato Paratore at the Nordea Masters in Malmo.

The 23-year-old European Tour rookie, world-ranked 469, shot a five-under-par 68 at Barseback Golf and Country Club.

Welsh pair Jamie Donaldson and Bradley Dredge are both just one shot behind after the opening round.

“It was tough out there, a lot of swirling winds which made it difficult judging clubs, but I managed to put a good score together,” Orrin said.

Donaldson’s opening round 69 belied his recent form – he has just one top-10 finish in the last 17 months – while Dredge’s strong show came in the week he qualified for his first US Open at the age of 43.
