ArgentinaÂs Emiliano Grillo zoomed into an early share of fourth at the Africa Open Golf Challenge after carding a Saturday 64 at East London Golf Club.
ÂWhen I woke up this morning I knew there were going to be a lot of birdies out there, because there was no wind. IÂve been playing pretty awfully lately, and finally some things are getting better and itÂs working,Â he said.
The 20-year-old raced through the front nine in 31 strokes, including a run of birdies from the fourth to the seventh.
ÂI had it going for a couple holes and then made some pars on the back nine. You might make birdies later on, but you have to score in the first six or seven holes Â thatÂs the key to this golf course,Â he said.
With plenty of wind predicted for Sunday, Grillo was hopeful that blustery conditions would give him a chance to rein in the leaders.
ÂHopefully there is wind, because IÂm four or five back and I need as much wind as possible,Â he said.
