Kelapile takes the lead in George

Alpheus Kelapile leads after the 1st roundAlpheus Kelapile opened with a 4 under par 68 at George Golf club to take a one shot lead into the second round of the 2008 Cape Province Open.

The first round of play was only completed early this morning due to slow play and fading light on the first day but this didnt hinder the top amateurs ability to post good scores.

Cameron Johnston and JJ Senekal are trailing Kelapile by one shot with solid performances (a pair of 69s). They are followed closely by Johan du Buisson, Johan de Beer, Lyle Rowe, the relatively unknown Pieter Moolman, and the ever present Dylan Fritelli who is fresh off a win in the SA Boys where he won in a playoff on 15 under par.

With so many of SA’s best Amateurs at the top of the leaderboard, the weekend promises to offer an exciting finish tomorrow evening.
