Bhullar takes control in Indonesia

Gaganjeet Bhullar holds a two-stroke lead after the opening round of the Indonesia Open on Thursday, while Australian Sam Brazel is three shots off the pace. Bhullar carded a seven-under-par 64 to gain the lead at the Pantai Indah Kapuk Course. The 25-year-old, a four-time winner on the Asian Tour, went bogey-free on the first day, sinking seven birdies, including five in succession from the fourth hole. Thailand&aposs Jazz Janewattananond hit a round of 66 to be within two shots of Bhullar heading into the second day. Anthony Kang, Mo Joong-kyung, Nicholas Fung, Berry Henson and Shaaban Hussin are also five under for the tournament. Brazel is in a tie for eighth following his 67, which included five birdies, with his only blemish coming at the par-three 15th. Joining the Australian at four under are David Lipsky, Sujjan Singh, Prom Meesawat, Thongchai Jaidee and Chapchai Nirat. Meanwhile, David Lutterus is the next-best performing Australian in the field, sitting five shots adrift. Compatriots Adam Groom, Scott Hend and Darren Beck are all one-under par, while Matt Jager and Andrew Dodt are a shot further back.
