Branden Grace achieved a career first of three eagles in one round as he opened with a 65 to share the lead on day one of the BMW South African Open, proudly hosted by the metro, at Glendower Golf Club, on Thursday.
Koepka, whose brother Brooks won the US Open previous year, had set the early clubhouse target after a round containing seven birdies, an eagle and two bogeys, with England's Chris Paisley a shot off the pace following a 66. "I think the putting stroke was a little bit quick and I pushed and pulled a few".
Grace said he had drawn on his experience of winning at Sun City last November during Saturday's late surge. For his third shot, he had a gap toward the front of the green (the pin was back left), but out of a fluffy lie, the ball came out high and hit more trees, bouncing left and settle near another tree.
Lanzini, Arnautovic inspire West Ham win at Huddersfield
However, it was West Ham who broke the deadlock just before the half hour after a mistake by Lolley from Lossl's short goal kick. The second half couldn't have started any worse for Huddersfield.
The double US Open champion went out with three birdies and an eagle on his front nine, and added three birdies and a bogey on the back before arriving on the par-four 18 where a double bogey made for a frustrating end to his charge as he signed for a 67. I was also four or five behind going into the last day at Nedbank so i thought if I could get the margin pretty small I could still have a chance. He picked up an unlikely birdie on the 13th from the fairway bunker by making a 25-foot putt, and he made a 20-foot birdie on the next hole.
France's Adrien Saddier, who shared the halfway lead with Paisley, could only manage a third round of 73 to fall three shots off the pace alongside American Chase Koepka and South Africa's Jacques Blaauw. "It feels good. I don't want to get ahead of myself, just want to do my thing, but this is great for the confidence".
Home player Jacques Kruyswijk is alone in second on 9 under, with a group of four players another shot behind him on 8 under and in a tie for fourth.
Seeing Samsung's 'The Wall' MicroLED TV Made Me a Believer
But because it is modular, it is much easier to ship and install in a home compared to most of the other very large displays. Because each LED can turn on or off individually, MicroLED has the potential for infinite contrast, just like OLED TVs.
"I am excited for the weekend but there is still 36 holes to play and I must try to stay focused during the last two rounds".
"Through 13 holes, I think I was five or six behind". Turning in three under for the round, the local claimed five birdies within six holes during the inward half to leap into contention for first prize. "There are low scores out there, but you just have to avoid the rough".
"I'm looking forward to it big time".
Mangled car, destroyed homes show mudslide devastation
At one spot, a auto appeared to be sheared in half - its front half pointed skyward, jammed against a pile of muddy wreckage. The heaviest rains have now cleared away from the burn area, and the weather will continue to dry up on Wednesday.
That group contains overnight leaders Branden Grace and Chase Koepka, Zimbabwe's Scott Vincent, and Retief Goosen, the two-time U.S. Open champion who hasn't won a professional tournament since 2009.
