TURIN, Italy (AP) - Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium took a share of the lead in the first round of the Italian Open on Thursday.
The Ryder Cup standout shot a 65 at the Golf Club Torino to join Ricardo Gonzalez and Maximilian Kieffer at 7 under.
Colsaerts withdrew from last week's KLM Open with the flu and appears to have benefited from some time at home.
``Nothing beats being back home with your mum looking after you,'' Colsaerts said.
Gonzalez missed three cuts in a row since finishing as runner-up at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles but he was on form with six birdies, one bogey and an eagle. Kieffer had a 25-foot putt for the outright lead at the last hole but had to settle for a par.
