Port Elizabeth - Stormy conditions at Humewood Golf Club on Thursday made the perfect setting for round one of the inaugural Sun Boardwalk Golf Challenge, a R600 000 links contest that lasts 54 holes.

The morning field had to contend with coastal winds and intermittent rain, but at the close of his first 18 holes Roberto Lupini had come out on top with an opening 68 reports the Sunshine Tour website.

Lupini started on the 10th and felt the bite of the course when he took six shots to complete the par-four 13th. He was playing well, but mistakes are paid for at a course like Humewood. Despite making four birdies on his first loop the 31-year-old turned in level-par.

“It was very tough, we were just trying to keep it as low as possible. A couple of the holes on my front nine weren’t so great, but it was a good solid start,” he said.
