Charl carded a second round -8 under par 63 on the easier Bushwillow Course, to top the South African Open leaderboard at -12 under par, a one shot lead heading into the weekend;

“The drive on 17 was probably one of my worst tee-shots for the week, I figured if I could walk off with four or five, it would be good.”

“I managed to hit a really good little third shot there. They don’t happen very often.”

“I still can’t figure out why I’m not getting the performances I need, even after that round.”

“I’ve had a few tournaments where I’ve played well like this, so I’m not going to talk too much yet.”

Madalitso Muthiya, of Zambia, has second place to himself at -11 under par, a second round -3 under par 68 on the longer Firethorn Course, keeping him in touch of the leader;

“I was pleased that I managed to bounce back after the blemish.”

“I am very happy that I was able to hang in there and not let that distract me in terms of finishing off the round.”

“I am pleased with where I am. I think I have taken the right steps to play good golf and the next thing for me is to play good golf again. I think everything else will just take care of itself.”

Three players are then tied in third place at -10 under par. Zander Lombard, South Africa, -3 under 68 on Firethorn, Kurt Kitayama, USA, -2 under 69, Bushwillow, and Louis Oosthuizen, South Africa, with -1 under 70 on Bushwillow.
