Mostert and Catlin in the lead

They are two leaders at the start of the tournament. South African Dylan Mostert is in the lead after returning a card of 64 (-7). The winner of the Nelson Mandela Bay Championship (Challenge Tour tournament) made 8 birdies and a bogey: ” I am very satisfied. I played really solid today, kept the momentum going all round. I made some good putts, hit a lot of greens. They are small so if you hit the greens you will have plenty of chances. I managed to make a few putts, I will continue to do the same. I can’t wait for tomorrow. »

Its co-leader is the American John Catlin. The 32-year-old made an eagle at 18 and 5 birdies: “It was a good round of golf. It’s a good way to start the tournament. I feel like I got close, just a bad swing here, misjudgment there, that’s all it takes here. The margins are very thin. I was able to take two weeks off, work on my game and I feel like it’s starting to pay off, so I’m really excited about that. »
