World number 167 Nacho Elvira

Golfers are often quick to bemoan their misfortune but lady luck was shining on Nacho Elvira in his first round at the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

The Spaniard's approach shot at the ninth – his final hole of the day – was heading for the water until striking a rock on the edge of the lake.

Elvira's ball bounced back in the direction it came from and onto the green on a glorious day in Sun City.

The world number 167 still had to settle for par, signing for a two-under 70 to end the day three shots behind leader Bernd Wiesberger at Gary Player Country Club on Thursday.
