Englishman Matt Ford and Irishman Kevin Phelan shared the Africa Open first-round lead on 67 Thursday after taming blustery East London Golf Club conditions. Phelan, joint second in the Joburg Open last weekend, collected six birdies over the 6,108-metre (6,679-yard) layout with his sole blemish a bogey five on 11. Ford put unspectacular Joburg Open form -- a share of 43rd spot -- behind him to garner five birdies and did not drop a shot in the Indian Ocean town. Phelan, ranked 368 in the world, and Ford, 397 places further back, are both chasing a first European Tour triumph in this co-sanctioned event with the Sunshine Tour.
