Zimbabwe's Tony Johnstone, winless on the European tour since he secured the 1992 Volvo PGA title, opened up a three-shot lead in the South African PGA championship at Houghton Golf Club, Johannesburg, yesterday. Finding a deft touch with his putter after consulting an American eye specialist earlier in the week, Johnstone produced rounds of 68 and 64 for a 36-hole total of 132, 12-under-par overall. However, with a third of the field still to finish their second rounds on a wet and blustery day, the picture could change substantially before the halfway cut is made today.

The Scottish international Lorne Kelly, 24, won the Strokesaver La Manga Masters in Spain yesterday by three strokes. His final 73 gave him a four round total of 286 - two-under par.
