Bill Haas bogeyed two of his last three holes to slip back into a share of the first-round lead with Nicolas Colsaerts at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City on Thursday. In his first Nedbank, the American Haas made five birdies and one bogey to move 4 under par and two clear before slips at 16 and 18. Haas and Belgium's Colsaerts carded 2-under 70s to lead by one from South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen, Scotland's Paul Lawrie and two-time defending champion Lee Westwood of England.

Justin Rose dropped shots on three straight holes on the back nine for a 1-over 73.
