Cape Town - In the strongest ever field
assembled for a Senior Tour event in South Africa, there was one player
whose performance eclipsed all other competitors.
Mark McNulty, 63, born in Zimbabwe but now representing Ireland, was the best player on the course on Tuesday, with his back-nine
featuring six birdies which saw him eventually sign for a 7-under par, 65.
McNulty holds a four shot lead over
Michael Green and Kevin Stone, but it is those just a few shots further back
that he will have his eye on.
James Kingston, Denis Watson, John Bland and
Roger Wessels are all in the chasing pack and will be using McNulty’s round as
motivation going into Day 2.
In the Pro-am Mokgeteng Mashego and John
Moyes took the honours, beating McNulty and former
cricketing great Barry Richards, into second place after a count-out.
The prize giving was
held at the Beacon Island Hotel, with two items auctioned raising funds for the
Endangered Wildlife Trust.
Day 2 promises some exciting golf
with players now more comfortable on the Plettenberg Bay Country Club
