Johannesburg - When the sun finally came out over the Mount Edgecombe Country Club during the Nelson Mandela Championship on Friday, it shone down on ninth and 18th greens that, within 30 seconds, witnessed European Tour history.

They are one stroke clear of Oliver Bekker and Branden Grace, with the round still incomplete.

A feast of golf awaits on Saturday, with the second round still to be completed and the third round needing to be played the same day. The tournament has already been reduced to 54 holes.
