Kingston opened with a bogey on the first hole, but added four birdies on his opening
nine, before ending his round with a trio of birdies to take a four-shot lead
into the third round of the SA Senior Open hosted by Bitou Municipality.
Kingston was level par after the
opening round at Plettenberg Bay Country Club, but sunny conditions on the
second day saw him establish a dominant lead on 6-under par.
Defending champion Mark McNulty and
AP Botes (both 2-under) will have their work cut out for them in the final two rounds to
Kingston was pleased with his
round but still believes he should have done better.
“It was just one of those
days that from tee to green everything went smoothly, I still feel I left four
shots out there but hopefully I can correct that tomorrow.”
Besides Kingston, only four other golfers recorded sub-par rounds: McNulty (-2) and Rocky Tlhabanyane, Chris Williams and Steve van Vuuren also (all 1-under).
Day 3 will tee-off at 08:00 with
all 71 senior pros.
Conditions are expected to be windy and warm which will make
for an interesting round.
