Miaoli, Chinese Taipei, March 31:
James Byrne of Scotland shared second place after signing for a 65 at the Charming Yeangder ADT. Byrne, a two-time winner on the ADT, was pleased to return with a bogey-free round highlighted by seven birdies, which included five straight birdies from the 12th. “I putted very well. Everything was solid for me today. I missed quite a few chances on the front nine but I had a good run on the back when I reeled in five successive birdies. That pretty much sums up the round,” said the 27-year-old Scotsman, who needed only 27 putts.
