Robert Rock leads Joburg Open

Englands Robert Rock took the lead in the Joburg Open in the second round before a thunderstorm halted play for the day. Robert has a score of 11 under par after posting an eagle and four birdies.                                             Jamie Elson, one of the leaders after the first round, was unable to start, it has yet been reported why. Damien McGrane, who shared that first-round lead with Jamie Elson, was one over after three holes on Friday.

The second round will have to be completed tomorrow, an anxious wait for Charl Schwartzel to see if he makes the half way cut.

Jamie Elson leads Joburg Open

England’s Jamie Elson has stormed into a share of the first round lead at the Joburg Open, shooting an eight under par 63 over Royal Johannesburg and Kensington’s West Course.
“I got off to a flyer. I birdied the first, second, third and then chipped in at the fourth.

He was joined at the top of the leader board by Ireland’s Damien McGrane, who managed to reach the clubhouse before thunderstorms halted play.
In all about four hours were lost because of the real threat of lightning, and some of the players unable to complete their rounds before darkness set.
Elson was able to play his final three holes after the storm and picked up two shots in his last three holes of the day
“I had just hit a good shot on 16, the par three, and there was a strong downwind,” he said.
“With the water short it was a pretty good shot and left myself with an eight footer when I resumed play. I managed to knock that in and then finished well”
.“I had a good year here last year, I think I shot six-under on the second day at the hard course, so if I can do that again it would be nice.”

Damien was also pleased with his start to the tournament saying, “I am delighted to be in a good position after round one. For the last three or four years Irish golf has been quite incredible, and I think we feed off each other. For a small nation it sure is great to be there or thereabouts”
.“I stacked up a few birdies during the round, but that eagle really turned my round.
“I played beautifully from start to finish, and this course does give up opportunities. The greens and weather were perfect, so if you’re on your game there are birdie chances. Needless to say you have to make the chances and today I holed a few nice putts.

“I hit plenty of fairways and holed a few nice putts for birdie, it was just the bogey at the last which was disappointing. Apart from that it was a perfect round of golf.”

Lets hope these two happy soldiers are still at the top tomorrow.
