Sun king Fisher can fly further

Ross Fisher lines up a putt at Sun City
1 of 1

Nedbank Challenge Sky Sports 4, 9am

OHL Classic at Mayakoba Sky Sports 4, 6pm

Ross Fisher, Felipe Aguilar and Jeunghun Wang led after the first round of the Nedbank Challenge, the trio firing rounds of four-under-par 68 in Sun City.

Aside from a poor drive at the 17th hole, Fisher was in full control all day, and the in-form Englishman seems the most likely of the leaders to retain his position in round two. The Ascot man is course-proven and has been hitting his ball with authority for eight weeks.

Another second-round three­ball wager to consider is George Coetzee, teeing off 20 minutes before Fisher on Friday at 9.35am UK and Ireland time. Coetzee, like Fisher, has recently found his A-game. Chris Wood had heavy strapping on yesterday and is nursing a neck injury. If Wood goes lame, Coet­zee has only Alex Noren to beat.

Pre-tournament 4-1 favourite Henrik Stenson made three birdies in a row from the 15th hole on Thursday to move only one shot off the pace.
