Sun City: Harvey takes the lead

2012-08-03 00:00

SUN CITY — Jared Harvey played sublime golf at the Sunshine Big Easy Tour’s Gary Player Country Club tournament, where his opening 67 gave him a three-stroke lead.

The 23-year-old rookie was one of just three players to go below the card on Wednesday, and seemed to play a different course to his competitors, cruising to five-under in spite of the tough layout.

A fortnight ago, Harvey shot consecutive 69s on the East Course at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club for his first professional win. That victory factored into his five-under-par opening round this week.

Attie Schwartzel shot an impressive two-under-par 70 to take sole possession of second.

Scores: (RSA unless otherwise specified)

67 — Jared Harvey

70 — Attie Schwartzel

71 — Sammy Daniels

72 — Graham van der Merwe , Wynand Dingle

74 — Shaun Smith (AMA), Mark Williams,
