Malelane - South Africa's Keith Horne hit a second successive hole-in-one at the Alfred Dunhill Championship on Saturday and drove away with a brand new BMW for his efforts.

The 41-year-old Horne celebrated his achievement at the same par-3 12th hole at the Leopard Creek Estate.

"Unbelievable. It was the same club, but the wind was different, so I had to hit a full eight-iron this time," said Horne.

"It was in all the way -- never looked like missing. Went in a bit faster this time, so I didn't get to admire it as much as yesterday, but it really got the adrenaline going much more."

The prize for a similar feat on the final day was to be a BMW car, but after discussions between the sponsors, he was allowed to drive away with the vehicle on Saturday.

"I'm really chuffed. It was very kind of them to recognize that two holes-in-one were worthy of giving me the car. I wasn't expecting it, so I'm over the moon," said Horne, who stands 12 shots off the lead held by compatriot Charl Schwartzel.

"This was an unbelievable Christmas present and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful car."
