VALENCIA, Spain -- Chile's Felipe Aguilar led the Spanish Open in a three-way tie with Morten Madsen and Gary Stal after they all went 4-under 68 through the first round on Thursday.

Aguilar made six birdies to go with two bogeys on the Parador de El Saler course. Stal, of France, didn't shoot worse than par, while Denmark's Madsen dropped only one bogey on the day.

Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano was in a group of eight golfers at one stroke back.

Defending champion Francesco Molinari was two shots off the leaders' pace.

Local favourite Sergio Garcia hit a double bogey on the par-3 4th hole and ended the round on par.

Veteran Miguel Angel Jimenez shot 4-over 76 on his return to the greens after breaking his leg last December while skiing.
