Fisher calls on experience & backs driver

Posted on January 12, 2015 by Ken

Ross Fisher called on his experience of playing at Sun City in 2009 and 2010 and backed his driver as he shot a brilliant six-under-par 66 and claimed the first-round lead at the Nedbank Golf Challenge on Thursday.

The Englishman, a poster-boy for elegant golf, cruised around the Gary Player Country Club course with seven birdies and just one dropped shot – a four on the par-three 16th.

That bogey came after what he called his “one loose shot”, a tee-shot that went way left of the hole and then perched with a thick tuft of grass behind the ball.

Fisher enjoyed a two-stroke lead over a trio of Nedbank Golf Challenge debutants – South African George Coetzee, Germany’s Marcel Siem and Frenchman Alexander Levy – who all shot four-under-par 68s.
