The Hawkstone Park ace was one of three golfers to card a five under par, two shots behind leader Felipe Aguilar.

Chesters’s round contained nothing worse than a par, with birdies on the first, fifth, 10th, 13th and 18th holes.

Former Ludlow pro Oliver Farr also enjoyed a productive start, finishing joint-34th on one under par.

Chile’s Aguilar carded his best round on the European Tour for 17 months to take a two-shot lead at the Diamond Country Club.
