India's Arjun Atwal will take a commanding four-shot lead into the second round of the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open after shattering the course record at Heritage Golf Club with a sparkling 62 on day one.
Here, we take a look at what some of those in the chasing pack had to say after their first rounds.
Sebastian Heisele (66, -5)
"I'm very pleased with my round. My front nine was a bit of a nightmare to be honest. I didn't really feel too comfortable but slowly found something that worked for me. I got going on the back nine and I am pleased to pick up five shots on the back."
Louis de Jager (66, -5)
"I'm pleased with the score today. It was quite calm this morning, so the score was up there. At the first and last holes I made two bogeys but the 16 holes in between I played lovely, so I'm really pleased. It's always a special place to come to, so we're really enjoying it."
Miguel Tabuena (66, -5)
"I made a terrible error on the 17th. Three putting is not the best thing to do but I came back strongly. I put myself in a position to make a birdie and I made it. It was a bit gusty today. I've been striking the ball really well the past few weeks but I wasn't happy with my putting in Hong Kong last week. I changed putter and it is working this week."
Louis Oosthuizen (67, -4)
"I took advantage of the wind not being that strong on the first nine holes - I was four under through seven - then it gets tricky. The wind really picked up and there are some good holes out there. A lot of risk and reward. I was taking driver everywhere today - so a few errant tee shots - but I think there is definitely good scoring out there."
