Sterne Shoots Lowest Round Of Career To Lead In Dubai

Well the opening day at the Dubai Desert Classic saw Richard Sterne shoot a round of 62, which is the lowest round of his European Tour career and he tops the leaderboard at ten under par on a heavy day of scoring from the field on the Emirates course. 

The South African had a couple of years of bad health in 2010 and 2011, nursing a back problem, but the man from Pretoria is back, and fit to play a full schedule again this season and couldn’t have hoped for a better start.

The superb round off golf was nearly good enough to beat the course record of 61 set by compatriot Ernie Els nearly 20 years ago. Els managed to go on and win the event that year and I’m sure Sterne is looking to do the same this time round.
