A group of six players are currently chasing him and that includes English pair Ross Fisher and Alfie Plant. World number one Justin Rose is seven strokes off the pace after a level-par 70.

When asked about his round, Pieters told reporters: “I hit my wedges and short irons really close to the hole. I think I had maybe 10 good chances for birdie and made seven of them. I think I did everything pretty well today.”

Dubai Desert Classic champion Bryson DeChambeau sits on two-under alongside Dustin Johnson and Ian Poulter, who finished with back-to-back gains, while Brooks Koepka is a further stroke back.
