I just needed to stay patient and keep giving myself birdie putts" Horsey said.The 22-year-old Pieters turned professional 13 months ago but has only managed to make the halfway cut in five events this year with his best finish being second in May's Spanish Open.Whiteford went close to a maiden Tour win last year losing a playoff for the Ballantine's Championship in South Korea.Now the 33-year old Scot has put himself into contention again for a breakthrough success on the European Tour.'My start today was shocking as my first tee shot went straight into the rubbish and I was four over par after five holes" he said.

It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be at the start of the week."Lyle hit eight greens on the back nine but missed an 8-footer for birdie on No. 16 and a 6-foot birdie try on 18.'I'm just putting it down to rust" Lyle said. 'It's just one of those things when you haven't played in a long time you start seeing things on the greens that aren't there or you don't see things that are there."Lyle also is set to play Web.com Tour events Aug. 7-10 in Springfield Missouri and Aug. 14-17 in Knoxville Tennessee.
