SUN CITY---Ross Fisher opened
the 2015 European Tour season
with a six-under 66 to lead the
Nedbank Golf Challenge after yes-
terday s first round.
Fisher last won on the tour in
South Africa in March and the
Englishman felt right at home at
a sweltering Sun City with four
birdies on the front nine and three
on the back. His only slip came
with a bogey on No 16.
"To go around here (with) one
bogey and seven birdies, six under,
I ll definitely take that and run,"
He s two shots clear of a three-
way tie for second between South
African George Coetzee, Germany s
Marcel Siem and Frenchman
Siem had the shot of the day
when he holed out with an eight-
iron from the fairway for an eagle
on the par-four No 17, his ball tak-
ing a lucky kick off the right edge
of the green to head back across
the surface and into the cup to
win him a new car.
Siem said he d give the red Volvo
to his mother.
"I wanted to buy a car for my
mom after the good season I had
this year and she needs a new car,"
Defending champion Thomas
Bjorn was last after the opening
round of the new Order of Merit
schedule following an error-strewn
80. US Open champion Martin
Kaymer, a former winner at Sun
City in 2012, started with a 74 for
a tie for 22nd. The German had
four birdies, but also four bogeys
and a double bogey.
Along with Kaymer, there are
two other former No 1s playing
the 30-man invitational tourna-
ment in the wilderness of northern
South Africa this week. Two-time
champion Lee Westwood was sub-
dued on one of his favorite courses
for an even-par 72. Luke Donald
went around in 71.
Brooks Koepka of the US made
a flying start on his Sun City debut
with birdies on two of his first
three holes. The European Tour s
2014 rookie of the year found it a
little tougher later in his round at
Gary Player Country Club, and
had a costly double bogey on No

Creation of an Olympic television
IOC President Thomas Bach s
reforms may not represent a radical
revolution but they herald the most
sweeping changes in the Olympic
movement since the cleanup of the
Salt Lake City bid scandal in 1999.
Bach s "Olympic Agenda 2020"
is a package of 40 measures
designed to modernise the
Olympics, protect the brand and
convince potential bid cities that
hosting the games is worth the
multi-billion-dollar price tag.
The IOC executive board meets
today and tomorrow in Monaco,
reviewing Rio de Janeiro s efforts
in tackling delays, water pollution
and uncertainty over the golf course
for the 2016 Olympics. The board
also will discuss South Korea s
bumpy preparations for the 2018
Winter Games in Pyeongchang,
where a local funding dispute has
raised concerns over the project.
The full International Olympic
Committee will meet Monday and
Tuesday to vote on the reform pro-
The recommendations are all
expected to win approval from the
100-plus members, giving Bach a
strong endorsement and putting a
firm stamp on his presidency just
16 months into office.
