Immelman reached the turn in 34 but saw a birdie at the 10th cancelled out by a double-bogey at the next, before picking up shots at the 12th and 14th to get to two under for the day.

Better was to come at the 115-yard next, where Immelman struck his tee shot to within a couple of feet of the flag before watching it spin back into the cup.

The ace – the second of the day after Kalle Samooja’s hole-in-one early in the round – was followed by a birdie at the par-five next to take him to five under and within three of the early leaders.
