Jakarta, Indonesia, July 12: Johannes Veerman of the United States and Matthew Millar of Australia shot six-under-par 66 to give themselves a brilliant start at the Bank BRI Indonesia Open on Thursday.

Veerman, whose wife is on the bag this week, used his course knowledge to great effect as he made seven birdies against a lone bogey. Millar, who started from the 10th hole, had a resplendent back nine as he sunk six birdies, including four consecutive ones from holes four to seven.

Six players, including Liu Yanwei of China, 2018 Asian Tour Qualifying School winner Seungtaek Lee and South Africa’s Jbe Kruger shot matching 68s to share sixth place at the ongoing tournament.

Defending champion Panuphol Pittayarat is in tied-19th place on 70.
