Grace leads WGC in China as McIlroy guts it out (Reuters)

South African Branden Grace shot a sparkling nine-under 63 to take a one-shot lead in the first round of the WGC-HSBC Champions on Thursday while Rory McIlroy overcame a bout of food poisoning to finish five strokes back. World number three McIlroy had been bedridden for two days and missed out on practice rounds at the Sheshan Golf Club in Shanghai. It was a score matched by world number two Jordan Spieth, defending champion Bubba Watson and South African major winners Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen in an opening round delayed by 30 minutes because of heavy fog.
