  • South African Louis Oosthuizen fired a first-round 62 to lead the South African Open in JohannesburgMore

Louis Oosthuizen insists he will start the South African Open all over again after shooting a brilliant 62 to claim a first-day lead.

One shot off the lead held by Oosthuizen are two players - Zambia's 1330-ranked Madalitso Muthiya and the victor in Mauritius last week, Kurt Kitayama of the USA.

South Africa's Justin Harding meanwhile signed for a 69 to trail Oosthuizen by seven shots in tied-46th place.

The 36-year-old South African is one shot ahead of American Kurt Kitayama, who won the Mauritius Open last Sunday, and Zambian Madalitso Muthiya, ranked 1,330 in the world. "It definitely took a toll coming into this week". I felt exhausted during the pro-am and chose to play only nine holes on Wednesday because I just wanted to rest.

"The relaxed approach definitely helped". Oosthuizen and Muthiya played on the shorter Bushwillow Course at the Randpark Golf Club, which saw most of the low scoring on Thursday, while Kitayama teed off on the more formidable Firethorn Course to put himself into an excellent position. "But I think that mentally just getting the rest is the most important thing".

Oosthuizen carded nine birdies, including six in eight holes to come home in 30, as he made a blistering start on his first apparance in this event, which he's yet to win, since 2010.

"Anytime, anywhere, 9 under is always going to feel nice", said Oosthuizen, who is looking for his first European Tour win since the 2016 ISPS Handa Perth International.

"I just played really solid and made a putt here and there", Oosthuizen said. I drove it really well and gave myself good opportunities to hit it close and I'm putting nicely, so it was just birdie after birdie. "There's still a long way to go, but I'm very pleased with that round". "I've got one of the courses out of the way, so now I just focus on the main course for the week and it feels like a new tournament starting tomorrow for me".

England's Matt Wallace, a three-time victor on the European Tour this year who played with Oosthuizen and admitted to learning a lot while watching how his partner took advantage of a good start, is chasing on six under.
