Frost leads South African Open qualifying

Veteran David Frost shot a seven-under par 65 to take the first round lead in the South African qualifying leg for the 2005 British Open on Thursday.

The South African led compatriot Louis Oosthuizen and Switzerland's Andre Bossert by a shot after they carded 66s at the par-72 Atlantic Beach Course.

Out of a field of 33, the top three after 36 holes will earn the right to play at the 134th Open at St Andrews in July.

The 45-year-old Frost, who failed to retain his U.S. Tour card at the end of 2004, last played in the Open in 2000 when it was also held at St Andrews.

"I've played over 150 rounds at St Andrews so it would be good to get back there," Frost said.

This is the first of five international qualifying tournaments introduced by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club last year to make it more convenient and less expensive for overseas players to qualify for the world's oldest major championship.
