After the first day of the Cyprus Showdown at Aphrodite Hills, Scotland’s Robert MacIntyre picked up where he left off last week to take the lead. After rounds of 68, 67, 66 and 65, MacIntyre finished the Cyprus Open at the same venue last week and added another 65 under par on Thursday to lead seven players by one shot.

Jamie Donaldson, Thomas Detry, Sami Valimaki, Joakim Lagergren, Ashun Wu, Rikard Karlberg and Romain Langasque, former Ryder Cup champions, all shot 66, while Cyprus Open winner Callum Shinkwin and runner-up Kalle Samooja were two shots behind. #CyprusShowdow-The European Tour (@EuropeanTour) November 5, 2020 For the first two rounds of stroke play, the Cyprus Showdown has a 105-man field as normal, with the top 32 players and ties progressing to Saturday’s play with their scores reset.
