Italian Renato Paratore made a big move early in the second round after shooting a five-under-par 67 that included five birdies and an eagle, while South African Rhys West was also on the move in his second round.

English duo Andy Sullivan and Matt Wallace carded three-under 69s to move to five under for the championship while former Ryder Cup victor Jamie Donaldson, who carded the first ace of 2018, is a further two shots back after a one-under 71 which saw the Welshman mix five birdies with four bogeys.

"I got frustrated out there to be quite honest", Grace admitted. And did you know that this tournament is the second oldest Open championship in the world, having first been formally played in 1903?

Donaldson's ace and Southgate's incredible wedge shot from South African Open, as Grace makes three eagles in the first round.

"I eagled the second and kind of kept it going from there". "I hit the ball superbly through 13 holes but couldn't get it in the hole".


Branden Grace finished strongly on day three of the SA Open to head into the final round trailing leader Chris Paisley by just one shot. "It feels good. I don't want to get ahead of myself, just want to do my thing, but this is great for the confidence".

Darren Fichardt, another home favourite, made the move of the day in ideal scoring conditions with an eight-under 64 - the best round of the day - to lie four shots off the lead and three ahead of Masters victor Charl Schwartzel, who hit a three-under 69.

And he struggled through his first 10 holes on Saturday in just one-under-par before some inspirational words from his caddie and wife Nieke saw everything click as he collected five birdies in his last eight holes. "I made a par on two which feels like a bogey and made a bogey on five which was awful, too".

Three players are a further two strokes behind Grace on -12, with Frenchman Adrien Saddier, American Chase Koepka and Jacques Blaauw of South Africa all locked together on that mark.

"I've been in this situation a couple of times and I can't say I've dealt with it too well".
