Three Scots are among those tied for third place after the first round of the Volvo Golf Champions event in Durban.
Scott Jamieson, Paul Lawrie and Richie Ramsay all scored 69s, leaving them four shots off the lead.
For Jamieson, it could have been even better, with a double-bogey at the 17th blotting his copybook.
The fourth Scot in the field, Colin Montgomerie, carded a 72 to end the first day on level par.
Thongchai Jaidee is the leader after round one on seven under.
Jaidee enjoys a three-shot lead over South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Ernie Els after the first round.
