Goosen sets chase as Paisley, Saddier lead SA Open

Goosen sets chase as Paisley, Saddier lead SA Open

Vincent was one shot behind former Cape Town Open champion Jacques Kruyswijk of South Africa seized the early clubhouse lead after shooting a 67 in his second round to be at nine-under-par overall.

Overnight leaders Branden Grace and Chase Koepka fell down to a four-way share for fourth after carding one-under 71s, the latter producing an inconsistent round that included four bogeys.

World number 30 Grace, the highest-ranked player in the field, scored all his eagles on par-five holes and secured his third with an excellent 20-foot putt on the 15th hole.

"After a seven-week break, when I came out to practice on Tuesday morning and in the pro-am in the afternoon, I didn't really hit it great", he said."I was very rusty".

The two-time US Open champion, who turns 49 next month, produced an outstanding front nine as he followed three birdies in four holes with an eagle at the eighth, and he added another at 10 before getting into trouble at the long 13th and running up a six.

"I can not wait for the weekend", said the Englishman. Obviously, I have never been in this position before, so tomorrow, I'm just going to go and play and do my best. "I certainly hope that I can keep that trend (of Englishmen winning the SA Open) going". "I think I played flawless, except for the second shot on the first hole", he said.

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

And did you know that this tournament is the second oldest Open championship in the world, having first been formally played in 1903?

The Korean golfer has endured a bleak couple of years since he won the 2016 Shenzhen International and with it a European Tour card.

He made seven birdies and a bogey through 16 holes.

South African Retief Goosen, one of the former Major winners, was seven under for the day as he teed off on 18, only to suffer a double-bogey six that left him five strokes off the pace.

"It's a great start to 2018", said Grace.

Koepka, a brother of reigning US Open champion Brooks, also had to settle for a 71 over the 6,942-metre/7,594-yard layout 12 kilometres east of central Johannesburg.
