Friends Joao Sousa and Rui Machado enjoyed an afternoon playing golf at the Jamor Golf Club, ahead of the Portugal Open.

Sixth seed Sousa and wild card Machado are two of three Portuguese looking to win on home soil in Oeiras. Gastao Elias was also granted a wild card.

Sousa, who became the first man from Portugal to win a tour-level title in Kuala Lumpur last year, opens his quest against a qualifier. Machado faces fifth-seed Dmitry Tursunov. Both players' best results in Oeiras have been quarter-final finishes, with Sousa advancing as far in 2012 (l. to Ramos) and Machado in 2010 (l. to Gil).
