Bryce middle of the Asian Tour pack

Bryce Easton’s campaign on the Asian Tour is going strong and while he might not be shooting the lights out, he is in the middle of the pack after round one at the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters.

 

The 26-year-old Durbanite had a steady start to the week at Royale Jakarta Golf Club, all except for an unfortunate double bogey at the par-three 15th.

 

That two-shot slip left Easton two-over for the day, but he was steady throughout the remainder of the round and made it to the clubhouse in a share of 82nd, which is halfway up the 152-player leaderboard.

 

His countryman Louis Oosthuizen managed a respectable 72, but Easton was no slouch either on Thursday and currently joins the likes of Rikard Karlberg and Victor Dubuisson on two-over-par.

 

Sunshine Tour veteran Adilson da Silva flew his Brazilian flag high on Thursday after carding an opening 69 to take up a share of ninth. The 42-year-old spattered his card with five birdies during the first round, which marked an impressive comeback after he started the day with a bogey on hole one.

 

At three-under-par and two shots off the pace, the 12-time Sunshine Tour winner is certainly in a position to contend, and he’ll look to maintain his form over the coming three rounds.

 

Easton is in a different place to that – he’s aiming to make the cut and build his name on the Asian Tour. Consistent results are the focal point, and shot-by-shot is the way Easton will achieve it.
