Centurion, South Africa: Jeev Milkha Singh exploded into superb form on the back-nine with four birdies to card a five-under 67 and grab a share of the third spot after the first round of the Tshwane Open.

Jeev was two shots behind Pretoria native Darren Fichardt, who is once again handily placed at the top of the leader-board after an opening round of seven-under 65. Fichardt was one stroke ahead of Swede Bjorn Akesson (66).

Jeev, Jean Hugo (SAF), David Howell (Eng), George Coetzee (SAF), Gary Lockerbie and Mark Tullo (Chile) were all locked in tied third at 67 each. Jeev opened with seven straight pars before finding his first birdie on the eighth to make the turn one-under. A par on 10th was followed by a bogey on the 11th for the Indian ace.
