The Sunshine Tour, which co-sanctions this event along with the European Tour, tweeted a photo of the injury, which shows Oosthuizen's left middle and index fingers both swollen and bruised. "So when it rained all Tuesday at Randpark, I chose to use the trick".

Davidse, who plays out of Stellenbosch, was among the first men out on Thursday morning, teeing off at 7am on the Bushwillow course and he made the most of good scoring conditions. "I'm obviously very happy and pleased", he said. It's always nice leading a big tournament and especially the Joburg Open. I'm just out here to have fun, obviously, so I'm very blessed to be playing well.

The two-time European Tour victor kept a bogey off his card and made three straight birdies on the front nine before picking up four shots in six holes after the turn to vault into the share of second place.

Among the six players tied for second place were Jared Harvey, Ockie Strydom and Erik van Rooyen - all South Africans.
