Van der Wath qualified for the tournament, the world's second oldest national Open (behind the Open Championship), after carding a 4-under par round during qualifying at Irene Country Club.

In the tournament itself, Van der Wath signed for rounds of 74 and 76 to finish on 6-over par, to lie T134th, at time of writing.

The cut is expected to fall at even par, 144.

Van der Wath, who turned 39 on Wednesday, played 10 one-day internationals and eight T20s for South Africa before retiring in 2007.

He is best known for his role in the famous "438" ODI against Australia at the Wanderers in 2006 where a cameo of 35 off 18 balls took the Proteas to the brink of victory.
