GREEN by name, and very good on the greens -- that was the story of the day for Australian left-hander Richard Green.
A joint-fifth place finisher at the Irish Open last year, the Aussie really enjoyed his round as he shot a 67 to stay well up with the leaders.
He managed his way round very tidily, but performed especially admirably on the putting surfaces, where he had 10 one-putts.
"Probably the best I've played for a while," said Green. "Nice to see it back to where I expected it to be."
