SUN CITY, South Africa (AP) Louis Oosthuizen had to make a trip to the hospital this week because of kidney stones. He withdrew from the pro-am at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and was awake since 3 a.m. on the day of the first round because of the discomfort. He was considering pulling out of the main tournament.

Instead, the South African chose to play and produced a bogey-free 9-under-par 63 on Thursday - only one off the course record - to take a three-shot lead after the opening round at Sun City.

Oosthuizen made four birdies on the opening nine and five on the closing stretch to open a big gap on Thomas Detry (66) in second on 6 under.
