Welshman Price went bogey-free to post a three-under-par round of 69 and was joined at the top of the leaderboard by South African Williams, who fired six birdies and three bogeys to kickstart his Legends Tour season.
The pair are one stroke clear of Englishman Barry Lane and Scot Gary Orr at Trevose Golf & Country Club, with Price hoping to kickstart his Legends Tour season at the stunning English venue but admits that the course was challenging at times.
“I scrambled well today,” said Price. “I hit the ball okay, but it’s so firm and windy out there that it is difficult to hit the greens. I was really good with chipping them into a few feet and making them and I did that all day, I didn’t hit many greens in regulation, but I scored well.
“Today we’ve got quite a stiff wind, the course has become quite firm and bouncy, it’s tricky off the tees because there is a lot of fairway bunkers and it’s difficult not to run in, same on the greens as well. I had to change my game a little bit, I had to hit the ball a bit lower, especially on a cross-wind.”
The 54-year-old openly admits he relishes the challenge of links golf and was delighted with his opening round in Cornwall.
“Apparently we have the opposite wind tomorrow,” he said. “I’m going to have to look at my yardage and figure the course strategy.
“I scored well today, I’m just pleased like all the other players that we’ve started the Tour again and I look forward to the next couple of days. I like links golf, I think it’s awkward and fiddly, which I probably prefer.”
Scotsman Paul Lawrie, English duo Steven Richardson and Peter Baker, Argentinian Ricardo Gonzalez, Welshman Liam Bond and Austrian Markus Brier form the chasing pack at one under.
