FORMER champion Justin Harding of South Africa yesterday fired a sub five 67 to take an overnight lead of the Mopani/Redpath Zambia Open Golf Championship while Dayne Moore stood out as the best performing Zambian at one-over.
Winner of the prestigious championship in 2012, Harding sunk three birdies in his flawless back nine surging to the top and knocked off his natives Colin Nel and Jake Roos just by a stroke.
In 2014 on the same course, Harding finished in joint second on 14 under 274 and may wish to go a step further in this year’s championship.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
