Chase Koepka, Grace lead South African Open

Fantasy Golf Breaking News

Grace was in stupendous form on Thursday afternoon, making three birdies and three eagles, to go with two bogeys for a 65, seven-under-par, and sit alongside United States golfer Chase Koepka atop the leaderboard.

The 29-year-old South African also carded three birdies and two bogeys to match American Chase Koepka. I was a bit rusty with the wedges, but all in all I'm pleased with the round.

"It was fun. I don't think I've ever made three eagles in a round so I'm happy", said the Nedbank Golf Challenge champion.

Cape Town - Branden Grace made three eagles on his way to a seven-under-par 65 on Thursday to take a share of the first-round lead of the SA Open, proudly hosted by the City of Ekurhuleni, at Glendower Golf Club. I hit great tee-shots, especially on all the par-fives, and once I rolled in one putt [his eagle on the second hole], I just seemed to get on a roll on the greens.

On a day of good scoring, England's Chris Paisley fired a six-under-par 66 to be one shot off the leaders, while a further stroke back was a big group of players at five-under-par, including South Africans Erik van Rooyen and Richard Sterne. The only one I really was aggressive with was the second hole.

Chase Koepka, the younger brother of PGA Tour star and reigning U.S. Open champion Brooks, collected four birdies in five holes from the 12 and held the lead by himself on seven-under until Grace caught him by rolling in a 20-foot putt on the 15 and notching his third eagle. I drove it really well, which gave me a chance to get it close'.

"The rest was trying to hit it into position and trying to make the putts. So I played well", a chuffed Grace said after his round. "I had them all on line but the speed was just a little bit short on some of them".

Paisley, who is seeking his first European Tour title, said: 'I'm really happy coming off five weeks off.

Koepka, a graduate of the European Challenge Tour, also made two bogeys in his round, also eagled the second, and made seven birdies for his 65.

"I think I pretty much got the most out of that round". Former Masters champion and two-time SA Open victor Trevor Immelman also had a day to forget; his seven-over-par 79 likely to see him miss out on weekend play. I definitely left a lot of shots out there today, so hopefully I can keep up this kind of play.
