Jack Singh Brar's hole in one on way to four-shot lead in Egypt

Hampshire's Jack Singh Brar, 21, attached to Remedy Oak Golf Club, Dorset, pictured above in action today, had a hole in one at the sixth and seven birdies - five in a row from the 10th to the 14th - on his way to returning the lowest score of the day, a seven-under-par 65, to take a four-stroke lead with a 10-under tally of 134 in the Alps Tour's Red Sea Little Venice Open at Sokhna Golf Club, Egypt today.

Sharing second place are two Englishmen, Piers Berrington (68-70) and Benjamin Wheeler (71-67)  and France's Paul Elissaide (France), also 71-67. 

Singh Brar, who teed off at the 10th in his second round, said: "My start was pretty good again - five birdies in a row. I got a couple of more birdies but then bogeyed the first, fourth and five before I got a hole in one at the short sixth.
"I’m four ahead of the field with 18 holes to go but I’m still going to have to play some good golf  because some of these boys are going to go for it I think. 
"A lot can happen tomorrow, I just need to keep my head and hopefully, I will come up on top."

Scot Ewen Ferguson, a former Walker Cup player from Bearsden, has scored 69 and 71 for four-under 140 and is T11. Ferguson had five birdies, one double bogey and two bogeys on his roller-coaster second round. His double bogey 6 came at the second and he birdied the long third, long eighth, 11th, long 13th and par-4 18th. He bogeyed the fifth and 12th.

Singh Brar was not the only player to chalk up a hole in one. Two other players achieved the feat as well - Adrian Pinguet (at the sixth) and Ben Wheeler (at the ninth).
Weather conditions were very good all day with warm temperatures and no wind.
A total of 44 players with two-round tallies of 145 and better qualified for the final day.
