“I loved it,” said Elvira. “When I turned my back to 16 I was like, ‘I can’t believe this is finishing today’. I was having a lot of fun and on days like this you don’t want it to finish. I’m very happy and very pleased with the way I played.”

Du Plessis was pleased with his first round on his home course.

“It was an incredible round for me. I hit all the fairways almost and gave myself a lot of opportunities. I’m thankful that a few putts went in as well.

“I know it’s sometimes hard on a home course to expect a good score but the course is forgiving and I know the greens. If you give yourself a lot of opportunities you can shoot low on any course, it just makes it a little bit extra special that it’s my home course.”
