Wales' Bradley Dredge holds a share of the lead after the first round of the Hassan Trophy in Morocco.

Dredge, 44, shot a five-under-par 67 that included seven birdies to open up a one-stroke lead alongside Spain's Alvaro Quiros.

Englishman Oliver Fisher is in a five-way tie for third at Casablanca's Royal Golf Dar Es Salam.

"I've been lacking consistency and today I drove it in play every hole and hit a lot of fairways," said Dredge.

England's Lee Slattery and Northern Ireland's Michael Hoey are a further shot back on three under.
