Kjeldsen leads Garcia by 3 at Volvo Masters

SOTOGRANDE, Spain(AP) Soren Kjeldsen of Denmark shot a 6-under 65 Thursday for a three-stroke lead after the first round of the Volvo Masters, and Lee Westwood surged ahead in the chase for the Order of Merit title.

Sergio Garcia finished with a 68 to finish second on a windy day at Valderrama.

Westwood was one of only six players to finish under par after a 70 put him three strokes ahead of Order of Merit leader Robert Karlsson and longshot Miguel Angel Jimenez.

Karlsson initially struggled with his putter but rallied for a 73. Three-time major winner Padraig Harrington, the Swede's closest competitor for the European Tour's money title, was three shots behind Karlsson.
