The 33-year-old South American aced the 195 metre par-3 fourth hole with a seven iron to shoot to the top of the leader board and turned in 32 before the weather alert siren went and the players left the course.

The Paraguayan began the day on two under par, two shots behind overnight co-leaders Felipe Aguilar, Ross Fisher and Jeunghun Wang, 

It was an historic feat for Zanotti. It was the very first ace at the Nedbank Golf Challenge since it's inception in 1981.

Zanotti shared the lead on six under par with the Englishman Chris Wood, who turned in 33, for a share of the lead.

A quartet featuring South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and George Coetzee were lurking one shot adrift on 5 under par when play was suspended.
