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.

  • Thought of the Day

    1 Corinthians 3:3 - "For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?"

    One of my favourite U2 songs is a collaboration with Johnny Cash called The Wanderer, and it features the line "they say they want the kingdom, but they don't want God in it".
    Many people say they believe in God, but they don't experience his loving presence. They may be active in Christian work, but only if they have their way. If they cannot be leaders, they refuse to be involved.
    Because they refuse to allow God to fill their lives with his love, they remain weak and powerless.
    Spiritual maturity means developing a greater love for others.

    "When the love of Christ saturates you, immature attitudes such as pettiness, jealousy and strife are dissolved.
    "It is only when you have an intimate relationship with the Lord that you receive sufficient grace to rise above this immaturity and enjoy the solid food that the Holy Spirit gives you." - Solly Ozrovech, A Shelter From The Storm
