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.

He was three strokes behind leader Paul Haley II.'My only goal was to play for four days" Lyle said. 'That's pretty much all I came here to do. 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. When Lyle returns to the PGA Tour for the start of the season in October he will have 20 events to earn 283825 and reach the equivalent of No. 125 on the money list in 2012 the year he suffered a recurrence.Lyle returned to professional golf in November in the Australian Masters and played in the Victorian Open in Melbourne in February.
