Johannesburg - It was on one of the shortest golf courses on the Sunshine Tour where the big-hitting Merrick Bremner showed the most restraint. And it paid off as he took the first-round lead in the Origins of Golf tournament at Selborne Park Golf Club in Pennington on Wednesday.

"I played fantastic golf. I managed the course well and hit good shots when I needed to," said Bremner, who used his driver only four times in the round. But it was his course management which really stood out.

Adilson da Silva is his nearest challenger after a 65. Neil Schietekat is once again challenging for a maiden victory after his 66, and the group of players on five under includes recent champion Jacques Blaauw and rookie Musiwalo Nethunzwi.
