Brown T14 after opening round in Austria

6:32 am on 23 September 2011

The Wellington golfer Mark Brown has made an encouraging start to the Austrian Open.

On a relatively high scoring day, Brown posted a one-under par 71, but with only nine players breaking 70, that was good enough for a share of 14th place.

The unsung Welshman Liam Bond leads on 66.
