Rustenburg - There was very little separating the top teams after Saturday’s first round of the Gary Player Invitational presented by Coca-Cola at the Lost City Golf Course.

“We had an unfortunate four-putt on the last green to sacrifice the sole lead, but we’re still in a good place. We’re tied for the lead going into the final day so anything can happen. But I must admit it was difficult to hit the fairways on this course.”

Alongside them, the team of Fasth dovetailed superbly in a difficult first round of gusting wind.

“We all helped each other out when we needed to,” the Swede said.

And it was echoed by his business partner Chuck Colton.

“Our pro looked good all day and everyone else filled in. We dovetailed like you were supposed to.”

Although their team-mate, American actor Anthony Anderson, felt his contribution was being undervalued.

-9 Thomas Levet, Johnathan Joseph, Chris Kirubi, Grant Horsfield
