"It's the first tournament that I came to watch live and watch my heroes play", Schwartzel said.

Frittelli carded a five-under on Friday‚ and is in a group that includes England's Lee Westwood and Aaron Rai‚ as well as Ireland's Shane Lowry.

"I probably wasn't swinging unbelievably but I kept it under control and kept the ball in play all the time which is hard to do here". "My game is not really where I want it to be, but I've got two more opportunities this week to try and put a couple of good rounds together and then go to Dubai and try to finish the season on a high".

"You have to just trust your shot and sometimes it goes wrong, but I was fortunate to get it right a lot of the time - to be bogey-free was really nice". I wanted to shoot something below 70 and I felt like I had a chance of doing it, unfortunately it didn't work out but we're still in the lead.

Rory McIlroy's week scarcely improved, however, following an even-par 72 with a one-under 71 that keeps him well off the pace ahead of the weekend.

He also birdied the first two holes and ended with a tally of seven birdies, offset by bogeys on two of the four par-threes.

But after birdieing the par-four 13th, the four-time major victor twice drove into the bushes, leading to sixes at the par-five 14th and the par-four 17th.

"I'm pretty happy with the round", Oosthuizen told reporters.

"I haven't been giving myself good positions off the tee to give me chances with irons and get close enough to have a good look at birdies", McIlroy said.

He was by no means the only player to struggle on the 15th though as 2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel (78) needed nine shots to complete the hole. "I can make adjustments to it", Spieth said.

"So I feel confident, but transferring that to playing well is a different thing".

"I managed to guess some of the winds here right and that is very, very hard".

"It was very hard this morning, the wind was blowing a lot and the first few holes were straight into it".

New Zealand's Ryan Fox however has made a good start with a round of 69 to be 2 under and in 11th place.
