Garcia leads, Australian Scrivener in the mix at Sun City

Cape Town - Erik van Rooyen has dreamed of playing in the Nedbank Golf Challenge since he was a child, and he gets his chance on the back of a year of solid performances in his debut season on the European Tour. It's not ideal to see three-putts, but some of the pins were nearly impossible to get to and when you leave yourself 20 or 25 feet putting over hills then it is going to happen sometimes. "It was one of those rounds where things happened nicely to me", Garcia told reporters.

Two-time victor Garcia leads the way by four shots after posting a superb eight-under 64 at the Gary Player Country Club, registering eight birdies in his bogey-free round.

The Spaniard hit an eight under par 64 to lead the pack by four shots while McIlroy had a disappointing day at the office.

"I need to tidy up my game off the tee, and then if I do that, you can give yourself a lot of chances around here, but you need to get the ball in the fairway first". "I rolled the ball nicely".

Fisher's hopes quickly faded after racking up a quintuple-bogey from the trees at the par-five 15th, as Oosthuizen cancelled out a double-bogey at the eighth with an eagle at the 10th and picked up another shot at the par-five 14th.

To solve this problem, scientist Sudeep Joshi decided that environment for the bacteria to become mushrooms . The graphene nanoribbons acted like nano-probes that access the bio-electrons from the cyanobacterial cells.

"This sort of round does not happen very often, I was very fortunate", said the 38-year-old Spanish victor of the 2017 Masters after his bogey-free round.

Finn Mikko Korhonen, Mike Lorenzo-Vera from France, and South African Charl Schwartzel share second place on 68.

Rory McIlroy's week scarcely improved, however, following an even-par 72 with a one-under 71 that keeps him well off the pace ahead of the weekend. Yesterday the wind felt like it was switching on a lot of holes, and you're looking up in the sky trying to figure it out. He was on the green in six and three-putted for a nine on the par 4. "It's never easy, but I've done it before so hopefully, I can do it again", said Grace.

Kiwi Ryan Fox is six shots back in a share of 11th, after carding a two-under 70 to start the tournament in South Africa. "I can make adjustments to it", Spieth said. "It's a golf course that you need to be patient around".
