Alvaro Quiros and Simon Dyson share the lead after the first round of the China Open by carding five-under 67.

Alvaro Quiros and Simon Dyson have taken a shared lead after the first round of the China Open.

Both players carded a five-under 67 to enter the clubhouse, while six golfers, including defending champion Brett Rumford, sit one shot off the pace on Thursday.

The first round in Shenzhen was eventually suspended due to fading light, but Ryder Cup winner Ian Poulter was able to card three-under 69 through 18 holes.

Poulter is one of 12 players, including fellow Englishmen Simon Khan and Richard Bland, who are two shots behind the lead.

Henrik Stenson, who can overtake Tiger Woods as world number one with a win in China, finished the round with a one-under 71.
