After the first round at the Australian Golf Club, it is Jordan Spieth who has been stealing the headlines. The American carded six birdies in an opening round of -4 par, 67, leaving him two shots ahead of World Number One, Rory McIlroy.
The Northern Irishman, who is suffering from jetlag, having travelled over from Dubai, said his best is yet to come. Whilst Adam Scott is in serious need of an improvement on Day 2, having carded an opening round of +3 par, and is way down the leaderboard, tied for 82nd at the Jack Nicklaus-designed course.
Meanwhile, over in Spain, tennis star Rafael Nadal is back home in Mallorca for the second edition of his charity Pro-Am golf event, hosted alongside 2012 Ryder Cup winning Captain, and fellow Spaniard, Jose Maria Olazabal. The pair have combined to benefit the Rafa Nadal Foundation and Sport Mundi, of which Olazabal is President. Both entities work for the integration and inclusion of disadvantaged individuals or those with disabilities; to support and encourage specific actions which benefit the whole society.
