Nicolas Colsaerts broke the course record with an inspirational 64 at the par 73 course at the Volvo Golf Champions at Fancourt, South Africa.
Colsaerts birdied nine of the last 11 holes, including the final four, to gain an early lead over David Horsey, Joost Luiten and Thomas Aiken.
Ernie Els – not guaranteed a place for April’s Masters Tournament after falling outside the World Golf Ranking’s top 70 – bogeyed two of his first three holes. Montgomerie had a three under par round of 70 and Tom Lewis carded a five under 68.
Tomorrow should be a great day of golf. It really is a stunning golf course, so tune in to watch!
