Kruyswijk surges into the lead at SA Open

Kruyswijk surges into the lead at SA Open

A birdie-bogey from the 11th kept Vincent at six under before he hit a stunning second shot on the par five 15 for an eagle chance, but had to settle for a gain, which he followed with another at the 16th.

Mathew Southgate's brilliant wedge shot.

Grace said the only aggression he showed on the par 5s was on the second, when he had 244m into the flag.

"The eagles were not really a sign of playing aggressively", he said.

Spieth hit four trees with four shots on the par-4 eighth hole - his 17th of the opening round - starting with a tough break when his tee shot caromed off the trunk of a tree and down an 8-foot deep ditch that left him no good options. 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.

"The rest was trying to hit it into position and trying to make the putts".

"I know Stormy and Andy pretty well". I had the lines on all of them, but the speed was just a little off."That he was a little off was probably the result of a lengthy break over the holidays".

"I'm very happy and excited for the weekend", Saddier said after his bogey-free round. I wanted two good practice sessions before I came to the tournament, and the wind on Sunday and Monday at home at Fancourt was terrible.

"At the moment it is weird - I feel like I did not play awesome golf".

The three-time Major victor even managed to make the quadruple bogey without taking a penalty stroke as he hacked his way up the left-side of the 454-yard par 4 before eventually signing for an eight which left him on level par for the tournament before a bounce-back birdie at the last and an eventful round of one-under, 69. That was first of three straight birdies, and he had ample more opportunities, including a shot that hit the pin on No. 10 and settled 3 feet away. So, it was big deal to start off my round. "I certainly hope that I can keep that trend (of Englishmen winning the SA Open) going".

South African major winners Ernie Els (71), Retief Goosen (69) and Charl Schwartzel (69) all had solid opening rounds, but Trevor Immelman (79) carded five bogeys and a double-bogey on a day to forget for the 2008 U.S. Masters champion.
