Drummond Shares Lead in S. Africa
SUN CITY, South Africa (AP) _ Scott Drummond shot a 67 Friday and moved into a share of the lead with Retief Goosen at 133 after two rounds of the Dimension Data Pro-Am.
Drummond had a 5-under-par round over the 8,450-yard Lost City Country Club course, a day after opening at the Gary Player Country Club course, which is 7,858 yards.
Goosen, the U.S. Open champion, led by three strokes after opening with a 63 at Lost City but shot a 70 at Gary Player on Friday. He needed eagles on the first and last holes to hold on to a share of the lead.
``I lacked concentration out there today. I had quite a few birdie chances, but just couldn’t make the putts,″ said Goosen, who last week won the Johnnie Walker Classic in Perth.
``I felt a bit drained for some reason. And I was under-reading a lot of the putts. I was struggling to focus. But it was nice to finish with an eagle and tied for the lead. I’ll get a good night’s sleep and I’m sure I’ll feel a lot better tomorrow.″
Craig Lile and Desvonde Botes were tied for third at 135, and Tjaart van der Walt, Leonard Loxton and Paddy Gribben shared fifth at 136.
Defending champion Darren Clarke was at 141 after a 68 on the Gary Player course.
