Experienced David Frost won the South African leg of qualifying for the British Open despite shooting a four-over par 76 at the Atlantic Beach Golf Course in Cape Town on Friday. The 45-year-old South African, who carded a course-record seven-under-par 65 in the first round, completed the 36-hole event in three-under 141. He earned the first of three places for the 134th Open, which takes place at St Andrews in July. Switzerland's Andre Bossert and Scotland's Doug McGuigan took the other two places after a six-hole play-off. This is the first of five international qualifying tournaments, which were introduced by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in 2004. This was done to make it more convenient and less expensive for overseas-based players to qualify for the world's oldest major championship. (AP)
