Shiv Kapur shot an opening round six-under-par 66 at the 2010 Czech Open on Thursday. He aimed for the early clubhouse lead at the Caladna course in the Czech Republic.

Course designer Miguel Angel Jimenez fired-in an early contender for shot of the tournament. He landed a birdie at the par-three third hole. The Spaniard recorded a one-under 71 during his opening round to claim a share of 26th place.

Simon Dyson racked-up four straight birdies starting at the sixth hole. He ended the day as one of 15 players in a tie for 11th. Dyson is 16th in the race for a spot on the European Ryder Cup team with only one week to go.

Peter Hanson was also working on Ryder Cup aspirations, but he dropped a shot early on. It wasn't the only blemish on his card as he also squandered a stroke at the 12th. But Hanson came back with a series of seven birdies that let him head to clubhouse five-under for the day with a 67. He scored a two-way share for second alongside Tano Goya of Argentina.

But the man in front after the first 18 holes is India's Shiv Kapur. He claimed a one-stroke lead at six-under-par.

Kapur started the day with a solid run that sent him out in an impressive 30. He dropped shots at the 10th and 11th, but recovered to birdie the 16th and the 18th. Kapur took the top spot with a 66.
