A fantastic opening round from Soren Hansen saw the Dane break the course record at the Open de Espana with a nine-under-par 63.

Breaking the course record would have been a long way away from Hansen's mind when he started with a double bogey, but the 35-year-old recovered in breathtaking fashion. The Ryder Cup star putted nine birdies and an eagle in an incredible round.

Hansen has a one stroke lead over Frenchman Thomas Levet, who had actually equalled the old course record of eight-under-par 64 an hour before Hansen had finished his round.

"I played well I must admit," said Hansen. "Had a lot of birdies after a rough start with the double-bogey, but then I played fantastic from there.
