Wentworth:

Indian golfers SSP Chawrasia and Jeev Milkha Singh got off to a steady start by carding identical one-under 71s to be tied 33rd after the first round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, United Kingdom.

Chawrasia had three birdies against one bogey, while Jeev struck an eagle, a birdie and two bogeys, one of them on his first hole.

Danny Willett, in his first appearance on home soil since his victory at Augusta National, lived up to his top billing with a sparkling six-under 66 in the first round.

The 28-year-old Englishman, the highest ranked player in the field, was the only player not to drop a shot at Wentworth Club and sits one stroke behind the trio of Australian Scott Hend, Dutchman Joost Luiten and Korean Y.E Yang.
