It has been a great start for South Africa Golfers at the Masters tournament with Porteous leading the tournament on -6(9) with a 30 on the front nine holes. Sterne also well placed at -4(11) and Oosthuizen getting an Ace on the fourteenth hole continuing his great form on par 3s.

Earlier South African golfer, Hayden Porteous put himself on the golfing in style as he carded -5 under in his first six holes, with eagles on the par five four and six.


Hayden, who is ranked 249th in the world and qualified by winning the Jo’burg open, then followed that feat with a birdie on the seventh and left making fans in the process.

Porteous won many amateur tournaments in South Africa, including the South African Stroke Play in 2012 and 2013. He was the top-ranked South African player when he turned professional in 2013.
