South Africa’s Thriston Lawrence and Spanish Angel Hidalgo had a share of the lead of 6 under par before a thunderstorm interrupted play for the day in the first round of the DP World Tour’s Joburg Open at Randpark Country Club on Thursday.

It was the opening day of the newly created World Tour, formerly known as the European Tour, and the start of the new 2022 season.

Hidalgo, 23, recovered from a bogey on the first and 15th holes to hit six birdies and an eagle in his round of 65 and took the lead in the clubhouse early.

Lawrence, who shorted two eagles, still has to play the last hole in his opening round, after bad weather left several golfers still out on the course.

England’s Ashley Chesters sits alone in third place after scoring a 66, and dropping a shot on the 18th.
