Bourdy leads at Dunhill Championship
Last updated: 16th December 2012
Gregory Bourdy's opening six-under par 66 gave him the first round lead at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa.
A shot behind him is title favourite Charl Schwartzel, who registered a bogey-free 67. 2011 Masters champion Schwartzel is not alone in second place, however, with fellow South Africans Darren Fichardt, Louis De Jager and Oliver Bekker, as well as English pair Richard Bland and Steve Webster, all alongside him.
"I got off to a good start being three under after six, but I should have been six-under," said Webster, who lost to Scotland's Scott Jamieson in a play-off for the Nelson Mandela Championship in Durban on Sunday.
"I've had four seconds in South Africa, and came so close last week. It would be nice to go one better, but I've just got to see what happens."
Jamieson shot an opening 70, while 2010 Open winner Louis Oosthuizen - the highest-ranked player on the field - stumbled to a 73 that included a quadruple bogey eight on the 448-yard third.
