Round 1 of the Alfred Dunill Championship produced 47 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 73.05. Morten Ørum Madsen leads on -7 with Versfeld and Santos following behind on -6. We analyse their performances and round up the early Genworth Statistics leaders.

Morten Ørum MADSEN -7

Morten Ørum Madsen carried over his brilliant play from last week’s victory with an opening 65, which included eight birdies against a single bogey. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 25 year old Danish golfer ranked 7th for Greens in Regulation and 8th for Putts per GIR (the combination of which suggests some accurate approach play), plus he ranked 1st for Par 4 Scoring and accumulated more birdies than any other player.
