"19-year old Haydn Porteous is a talented player that surely has a bright future ahead of him and I am hopeful that the young South African will prove this to be the case at this week's Nelson Mandela Championship.
Porteous is well capable of shooting low 18-hole scores as he showed in October at the first stage of the European Tour Qualifying School when shooting a second round 62 on his way to a T-4 finish. "

Dylan Frittelli (1st Round Leader)
"I always like to back early starters when it comes to the first round leader market and who better this week than South African Dylan Frittelli who will hit the first tee shot at this years Nelson Mandela Championship.
Frittelli was a winner earlier this year when winning the Karnten Golf Open for his first European title success.
Frittelli has already shown this year that he is well capable of shooting low first round scores and I am hopeful that will be the case again this week. "
Jean Hugo (1st Round Leader)
"Jean Hugo should enjoy returning to the Mount Edgecombe Country Club this week as it was on this course in 1998 that the South African won the South African Amateur Championship.
Hugo comes into this tournament on the back of a last time out missed cut at the Alfred Dunhill Championship however prior to that the South African had finished in T-12 at the South African Open Championship.
Hugo is a multiple winner on the Sunshine Tour with 14 wins to date. "
Tjaart van der Walt (1st Round Leader)
"With previous course form in mind, I think Tjaart van der Walt is worth an interest in both the first round leader & outright markets.
Van der Walt finished T-2 in the Mount Edgecombe Trophy in 2007 which was played at the Mount Edgecombe Country Club.
Van der Walt shot three rounds in the 60's including a final round 66 and this would suggest that this course suits the South African's eye.
Brandon Stone (1st Round Leader)
"Brandon Stone missed the cut last time out at the South African Open Championship however the young South African has put in some good performances this year following a missed cut and I think this could be the case again at this weeks Nelson Mandela Championship.
Stone's best finish this year was an eye catching T-15 at the BMW International Open.
Last month Stone shot an opening round 64 on his way to finishing 2nd at the second stage of the European Tour Qualifying School. "
