Sun City - It has been a quiet few months since he won the Zimbabwe Open, but Jake Roos was back firing a six-under-par 66 on Wednesday to lead the first round of the R600 000 Sun City Classic.
"It was a little bit of an up-and-down round," he said.
"I really like the course," he said.
"I played flawless golf," Schwartzel said.
Like Tipping, he started on 10, and he eagled the 11th to get off to a fast start.
"Some of the second shots into the par-fours are a bit long for me. But I had a local caddie helping me read the putts, and I putted well enough to keep myself in there."
