Brown in freefall in South Africa

8:46 am on 12 December 2010

After a great start the Wellington golfer Mark Brown's freefall continues at the Dunhill Championship in South Africa, the first event of the new European Tour season.

Brown was just three shots from the lead after an opening round of 69 but backed that up with a 74 and an 80 to be three strokes off the bottom in a share of 62nd.

Anthony Michael leads on his home tournament by a shot on 10 under ahead of Spain's Pablo Martin and another South African, Dawie Van der Walt.
