156 players made their debut at the Jபberg Open in Randpark GC, Johannesburg, South Africa. The first day’s play was canceled due to thunder. When the game resumes on Friday, 16 players are missing, one for South Africa, two for Ireland and 13 for Britain. The reason they withdrew from the competition was that they had to rush home to avoid being isolated.
Britain has decided to add South Africa to its red list for travel. Health Minister Sajid Javed has announced that all flights to the UK from South Africa and five other African countries will be canceled at lunch on Friday. Those arriving in the UK from these countries after 4pm on Saturday should be in hotel isolation.
However, many Britons have opted to stay, with 13 names still on the leaderboard, but some may exit the qualifying round. The best surviving Britisher still in Randpark GC is Englishman Ashley Chesters, who is currently in third place, under seven in total.
Among the dropouts, there were many who scored high from the first round, but Welshman Oliver Far played well and was three equal before leaving.
Jens Fahbring did not start his second round, but is still the best Sweden, with a share of 32 under one overall.
