He has had to come through the Qualifying School in each of the last three seasons but fired a -5 under par 67 here to join Adam Gee at the top of the leaderboard. The leading five players on the board came from the afternoon rounds, they missed the mornings high winds on the  Diamond Country Club course in Atzenbrugg, Austria. Mikael reported that he had played well, and his putter was working too; “I played pretty solid all day and made a few putts, so it all added up to a pretty good day. Nothing was spectacular today, but everything was pretty solid. I’ve been working well with my new coach, and we’ve made a lot of progress over the past four weeks."  “My long game is working well, my short game comes and goes so I’m still a little bit inconsistent around the greens, but I’m getting there. You have to be very careful out there. The course is very firm, so you have to be very precise off the tee, you don’t want to take any unnecessary chances, because you can soon get caught out.” Adam, who also came through November’s Qualifying School and join the 2014 Race to Dubai, was relieved to have missed the morning’s high winds; “When we arrived at the course the wind was blowing pretty hard, which is maybe why a few of the guys struggled a bit more in the morning. I think we definitely got the better half of the draw, which was another bit of fortune that went my way, but I’ll certainly take it." “I’ve been playing quite nicely lately, there were some good signs last week and I’ve continued that progress here. There’s still a long way to go, but the signs are encouraging.”  Rhys Davies, Matthew Baldwin, Richard Finch and Berry Henson are a shot further back, after their opening rounds of -4 under par 68.  Austrian home favourite Bernd Wiesberger carded -1  under par while defending champion Joost Luiten went round in level par.
