Poor start for Welsh trio in South Africa.

WALES' three-strong contingent beginning their European Tour adventure in South Africa last night failed to make any impression on the first-round leaderboard.

Mountain Ash's Stuart Manley, the only one of the trio with full playing privileges for 2009, could only put together a three-over-par 75 in the Alfred Dunhill Championship, at Leopard Creek Golf Club.

Wrexham's Garry Houston put together a level-par 72, while Pontyclun-based Sion Bebb was two over and, like Manley, facing an uphill battle to make the halfway cut.

At the top, American Len Mattiace and Swede Michael Jonzon fired seven-under-par 65s.
