Alfred Dunhill Championship: Wil Besseling leads season opener

Garrick Porteous Created a Beginning to life in the Tour to get within a shot of the lead.

The Englishman, that procured his European Tour card last week in Qualifying School, published a bogey-free 66 to remain with ancient pacesetter Wil Besseling.
After carding a seven-under 65 in hot and humid conditions in South Africa where gamers were given permission to use shorts for the first time at a European Tour 36,, besseling retains a narrow edge.
I played well, Besseling stated. Its a terrific beginning for the season and a fantastic round. I had it going well on the par fives.
Porteous is combined on six beneath by South African Keith Horne and Spains Pablo Larrazabal, whereas Alejandro Canizares is two strokes off the pace following a final-hole eagle raised him under.
First round of the season I really dont think I am all set to go with shorts, Larrazabal said. It is more for pro-ams or practice rounds to chill with friends, but as a competitive round I did not feel like it and it worked.
The Grant Forrest of scotland briefly topped the leaderboard after playing with his first 11 holes seven beneath to triple-bogey the eighth – his hole – on his way to a opening-round 68.
Forrest is alongside Englands Jack Singh Brar from the team on four below, while Masters champion Charl Schwartzel marked his return from a lengthy injury lay-off using a 70.
Eddie Pepperell, the participant in the specialty, started with a one-under 71, while Dean Burmester triple-bogeyed his final hole to sit eight shots back on one over.
