Tournament Wrap: Hero & Nedbank

From the Hero World Challenge & South African Open

Hero World Challenge

World number one Jordan Spieth shot a six-under par 66 to move into a three-way tie for the lead after two rounds of the World Challenge at Albany in the Bahamas. 

"Anyone lost a Dunlop five iron?"

Spieth, the defending champion, is tied with fellow Americans Bill Haas and Jimmy WalkerPaul Casey fell back after his first round leading round, shooting a 70 and is in a tie for seventh. Casey is on eight under alongside Matt Kuchar and Open champion Zach Johnson. Casey's compatriot Justin Rose is significantly off the pace after a 72 left him 10 strokes behind the leaders.


Nedbank South African Open

Henrik Stenson went on a birdie rampage in round two at the Nedback securing a one shot lead after round two at the Gary Player Country Club in South Africa. Stenson strugglked on the front nine, making bogies at the sixth, seventh and eighth, but turned things around to card a second-round 67. Jaco van Zyl, who was joint first-round leader with Stenson shot 68. Ross Fisher is seven shots behind Stenson on four under. Not such good news for Danny Willett, who shot a 75 to drop nine places at two under.

"Get down, and stay down longer than my breakfast did please..."

Stenson, who admitted to feeling "As weak as a kitten earlier in the week due to having man-flu, admits he's just grateful to be out there:  "On Wednesday afternoon I didn't think I would be able to tee it up," said Henrik. "I thought I was done and dusted, so to be leading after two days, it's a turnaround to say the least. But the saying is 'beware of the injured or sick golfer' and I guess that's true."

Lee Westwood may well have wished he'd got the lurgy after shooting a woeful nine-over 81 that included a triple and a double. Good job there's no cut...

Lovely stuff.
