Donald Claims 2-shot Lead

English golf hero Luke Donald has impressed his fans once again with his 2-shot lead post Round 1 at Sun City’s Nedbank Golf Challenge.

The impressive Sun City score is an able continuation of the Brit’s recent resurgence in his golfer career. Unfortunately a bad weather forced an early termination of opening stage of the Golf Challenge held at South Africa.

Donald had his 1st win of 2013 with the Dunlop Phoenix trophy once again last month in Japan. He was 5 under par post eleven holes while the play was terminated for the opening day given the constant lightning threats.

Almost 3 hours got wasted for bad weather conditions and it was just when Luke swayed up the leaderboard, the 1st thunderstorm hit the course, just after the local noon time.

The World’s # 15 proceeded with an amazing start with birdie from 5 ft on first & eagle from fifteen feet on par 5 second. The former World number 1 remained 3 under after 5 holes when all the golfers were shifted away from the Sun City course.

Donald was honored with the coveted Number One World ranking in 2011 as he came up with the prestigious PGA BMW Championship.

The 35-year-old Brit golfer picked up shots again as the tournament resumed – at the 8th & 9th to come out in thirty one, a couple of shots standing ahead of Thomas Bjorn (Denmark), Jamie Donaldson (Wales) & Brendon Jonge (Zimbabwe)- who noticed Luke’s approach to 9th spin back to hole for eagle 3.

Martin Kaymer, the defending champion of the prestigious tournament, was further a shot back on 2 under with Henrik Stenson (the European # 1) one under via 7. However, Justin Rose, the illustrious American Open Champion, was in the joint twenty-eights in the thirty man field post 4 bogeys in 1st 8 holes.
