Another South African is well poised to continue the dominance of a country that is rich in golfing talent. This time it’s Merrick Bremner who is dominating proceedings of the SA Open Championship as he brakes the course record in the first round.
The big South African has been on good form finishing in the top three in two Sunshine Tour events in the last four weeks and his form continued in the morning picking up three shots on the first four holes.
A 64 round a course like this is a great achievement but whilst nobody could match his 64 several of his countrymen are in striking distance at the top of the leaderboard.
Should be an interesting weekend, what are the odds on a South African winner? I won’t be taking any bets!
