• Basson leads in EPGA season-opener in South Africa


    JOHANNESBURG: Local hope Christiaan Basson held a three shot lead after Friday’s first round in the European Tour’s 2016-season opener at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa. Four days after Rory McIlroy signed off the 2015 campaign in style in the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai it was Basson who led the way at Leopard Creek Country Club. He produced a seamless eight-under par 64 to open up a gap to Briton Matt Ford and Mark Williams of Zimbabwe before play was suspended due to a storm warning with 39 players yet to finish their rounds.
