Louis de Jager reached a new high on Thursday when he shot 68 for a five-stroke lead after round two of the Vodacom Origins of Golf presented by Samsung at Wild Coast Sun Country Club. The 27-year-old hasn’t led by five shots before and the final round on Friday was an exciting prospect for him.

“I haven’t had this kind of lead before, so it’s new territory for me. I’m looking forward to it and we’ll see how I go tomorrow!” he said.
