Van Rooyen realises boyhood dream at Sun City

McIlroy is aiming to win the Race to Dubai for the fourth time McIlroy is aiming to win the Race to Dubai for the fourth time

Garcia, chasing a second win in as many starts on the European Tour, followed up his opening-round 64 with a one-under 71 in Sun City to stay one ahead of nearest challenger Oosthuizen.

Two-time victor Sergio Garcia leads the way by four shots after posting a superb eight-under 64 at the Gary Player Country Club, registering eight birdies in his bogey-free round.

Rory McIlroy's mission to hit the jackpot in Sun City and so give himself a fighting chance of lifting a fourth Race to Dubai crown next week suffered a poor start as he fell eight behind runaway pacesetter Sergio Garcia.

Sergio Garcia plays out of the 16th greenside bunker yesterday's second round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

The Co Down man knows he can afford to finish no worse than second if he's to have any chance of overtaking Francesco Molinari with a win in next week's season-ending DP World Tour Championship and claim his fourth Race to Dubai title.

"I wouldn't say it was a frustrating back nine‚" said a pragmatic Garcia.

"When you leave yourself 20‚ 25-footers it is going to happen [drop shots]".

"Shooting 68 or 69 today would have been great, but unfortunately that didn't work out, but you have to be extremely precise on this course. I still could have got away with a bogey, but both my caddie and I completely misread the putt".

But he was once again unable to safely negotiate the par-four eighth, following his first-round bogey with a double bogey Friday. I think I played very smart.

Garcia is four clear of another former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel plus Mikko Korhonen and Mike Lorenzo-Vera.

Frittelli carded a five-under on Friday‚ and is in a group that includes England's Lee Westwood and Aaron Rai‚ as well as Ireland's Shane Lowry.

Ross Fisher came close to the round of the day when he made the turn in 31 after three birdies and an eagle in his first nine.

The Spaniard shrugged his shoulders with an air of resignation when asked about the frustrations he encountered on the back nine that saw him drop shots on the 13th‚ 16th and the 18th holes.

He also birdied the first two holes and ended with a tally of seven birdies, offset by bogeys on two of the four par-threes.
