Scott Jamieson carded his first-ever hole-in-one on the European Tour but still found himself nine shots behind the leaders at the PGA Championship.

England's Danny Willett, Australia's Scott Hend and Korean YE Yang lead the way at Wentworth.

But the 32-year-old Jamieson's five iron at the 10th ensured he is joint leading Scot after his second-round 71.

"It was actually a very good shot," he told BBC Sport. "It wasn't a flukey hole in one."

Jamieson's decision to go with a five iron instead of a six for his 192-yard drive against the wind paid dividends in more ways than one as he won a car for his ace.

"It feels nice to have won the car as well," he said.

"It would have been annoying to get one and not get a reward, but a hole in one helps the scorecard as well."

Jamieson's performance overshadowed fellow Scots Russell Knox, Stephen Gallacher and Marc Warren, who are desperate for points as they look to revive their hopes of qualifying for the European Ryder Cup team.

However, the trio were joined by Paul Lawrie, Graham Fox and Scott Drummond in failed to make the halfway cut.

David Drysdale, who followed his opening 70 with a 73, is level with Jamieson.

Craig Lee, 74, Richie Ramsay, 73, and Greig Hutcheon, 73, are a stroke behind.

On the day he was named as one of Europe's Ryder Cup vice-captains, Lawrie (74) missed out by a stroke along with Knox, 71.

Gallacher had a 74, Warren a 72, Fox a 77 and Drummond a second successive 77.
