Grace, Koepka share first round lead at South African Open

Grace hunting more SA golf glory Golf: Saddier fires record 63 to share SA Open lead
Lucia Summers | 14 January, 2018, 19:53

"In the Nedbank Golf Challenge I was three shots behind and I just tried to stay positive, I wanted to get the margin small today and I've managed to play myself right back into it. It's the first time she has ever caddied and I just can't thank her enough", he said.

Retief Goosen, a two-time US Open victor, faltered at the last on Friday with a double-bogey six and lost further ground on the field with a one-over 73 to finish at seven under heading into the final round, while Ernie Els carded a two-under 70 to sit 10 shots off the lead at five under.

Saddier matched the course record with seven birdies and an eagle.

Compatriot Graeme Storm won the tournament previous year after a play-off with superstar Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland, but failed by one shot to make the halfway cut Friday.

The 25-year-old added he wasn't aware he was in with a chance of breaking the course record, seemingly more keen to get a picture of himself with tournament host Ernie Els.

France's Adrien Saddier, who shared the halfway lead with Paisley, carded a 73 to fall three shots off the pace alongside American Chase Koepka and South Africa's Jacques Blaauw.

Canadiens Danault taken to hospital with head injury
The Canadiens later announced that Danault was transported to hospital to undergo testing, and that he is awake and moving. Jakub Jerabek swiped at and missed a bouncing puck and Krejci pounced on it and beat Price from close range at 17:42.

"I putted well all week except in the third round but it is not something I generally struggle with‚" said the dog lover and enthusiastic outdoor cook.

"Through 13 holes, I think I was five or six behind. I'm just really excited about it". I know Stormy and Andy and hope I can keep that trend going (of winning the SA Open). "I had the lines on all of them".

Grace shot out of the blocks in the first round with a 65, for a share of the lead, but then felt frustrated in the second round when he shot a 71, with just two birdies, to slip down into a tie for fourth place. "I hit a poor shot and saved about a 12-footer for bogey there so it was big to start off my round".

Veteran Goosen looked set to be just two strokes behind the leaders when he stood on the tee of the 18th hole, but an errant drive and poor chipping cost the two-time US Open champion dearly as he double-bogeyed the hole to sign for a good 67, that could have been so much better.

Paisley, whose best finish in a European Tour event is third, only dropped one shot in his round.

Defending champion Storm (one-over) failed to make the cut, which was at par, as did Stone, Haydn Porteous, Trevor Immelman and England's Chris Wood.
