It seems that one of the most necessary things for professional golfers who travel around the world all the time is a private plane, because clubs get lost quite often on their way to tournaments.

The same thing happened to Pedro Oriol when he flew from his home country to the Czech Open. However, this did not prevent the little-known Spanish golfer from delivering an excellent performance in the first round of the Czech Open. Pedro shot a flawless five under 67 to move within one stroke of top-placed Peter Lawrie.

Now the 25-year-old golfer is not sure whether he wants to use his own clubs if the company finds and gives them back to him. The player did not expect to show such a good result and thinks that the borrowed clubs contributed to his brilliant performance in a way.

The youngster has enjoyed full membership on the European Tour for just one year and has managed to make two cuts so far. However, the performance of 2010 Czech Open runner up Lawrie was a little better as he scored with six birdies and no bogies at the Prosper Golf Resort.

Damien McGrane of Ireland and Victor Dubuisson of France also vied for second place together with the Spaniard, with Shane Lowry of Ireland and Mikael Lundberg of Sweden sharing third place. The only golfer at the Czech Open who is in the the top 100, world. No. 34 Miguel Angel Jimenez, fired a 76 and did not take any place.
