The DP World Tour is back for a new season, with two tournaments this week: the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship in Brisbane (Australia) and the Joburg Open (South Africa) on the Houghton Golf Course where Romain Langasque and Clément Berardo (arrested on the 11th hole) were in 3rd position on Thursday.

Defending champion Thriston Lawrence, elected rookie of the year, was 5th at -5, with 5 birdies.
Further on, we find Julien Guerrier at -3 in 18th position (stopped at the 15th hole). The duo Jeong weon Ko and Clément Sordet (stopped at the 13th hole) are 38th at -1. Robin Sciot-Siegrist and Grégory Bourdy are positioned 65th in par and David Ravetto achieves a worse performance at +3 in 129th position.
