Jimenez, the 1994 champion, is the oldest player in the field at 49 and would like to add another Spanish name to the trophy.

``Seve's first win on the European Tour was here in 1976, and Jose Maria (Olazabal) also won here in 1989,'' he said. ``So hopefully I can win here, too. That would be fantastic.''

Jimenez had two bogeys and eight birdies in a round in which he took advantage of good conditions. One of his birdies came when he holed a wedge from 40 yards at the 16th. Another on the 18th gave him the outright lead.

Robert Allenby of Australia and Gary Orr of Scotland were among a group of six players at 65 at Kennemer Golf and Country Club on the North Sea coast.

``Kennemer's special,'' Orr said. ``It's a real old-style golf course. You've got to put it in the right spots on the fairways and especially the greens. But I like the challenge. It's a pleasure to play courses like this
