Mark Foster shot a one under par round of 69 as he began his KLM Open challenge in the Netherlands on Thursday morning.
The Worksop golfer is in action at Kennemer Golf Course in Zandvoort.
It was a round of ups and downs for Foster, who picked up five birdies on the front nine, along with bogeys at the first and third holes.
But he dropped three further shots, at 11, 16 and 17, and found just a single birdie on the par three 15th, to card a 69.
He’ll tee off in round two on Friday afternoon alongside Chris Doak and Alejandro Cañizares.
