Inclement weather interrupted the first three days of play at The Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa. We analyse the Genworth Statistics of the Round 2 clubhouse leaders Campillo, Baldwin, Bekker and Grace at the point when Day 3 was suspended.

Jorge CAMPILLO -11

Jorge Campillo converted two eagles and seven birdies on his way to a magical bogey free second round 59 to lead in the club house alongside Baldwin (incredibly Colin Nel also carded a 59 on the same day). Looking at his Genworth Statistics for that second round, the 27 year old Spanish golfer recorded 17/18 Greens in Regulation (plus two of the Par 5 greens in sub-regulation) and just 26 putts. We should also note that over the first two rounds he has average a fantastic 3.83 for Par 5 Scoring.
