Garcia has sizzling start in Sun City
Sergio Garcia flew into a four-shot lead after the first round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa, with an 8-under 64 Thursday for the biggest opening-round advantage on the European Tour in a year. Garcia made eight birdies and was bogey free in a brilliant start to the penultimate tournament of the season. The Spaniard was clear of three players who shot 4-under 68s: Charl Schwartzel, Mike Lorenzo-Vera and Mikko Korhonen. Rory McIlroy, who is one of five players with a chance of being crowned European No. 1 at the end of the season, had an even-par 72 after a double-bogey on his second-last hole.
