Defending champion Anthony Wall reaches the second round in Germany

Defending Champion Anthony Wall recorded his seventh straight victory in the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play to reach the second round in Germany.

And despite a change of venue to Bad Griesbach Golf Resort for the 64-man knockout event, Wall carried on where he left off with a hard-fought victory over fellow Englishman Sam Walker, a last-minute replacement for the injured Kristoffer Broberg.

Top seed Matthew Southgate beat France's Romain Wattel 3&2 despite breaking his driver 15 minutes before teeing off, the 28-year-old borrowing one from compatriot Chris Paisley, who had earlier beaten Scott Jamieson the 22nd hole.

"Chris is a lot shorter than me so I was really squatting into my eyes every time I hit it, but did enough to win the match," Southgate, who finished sixth in the Open at Royal Birkdale, told Sky Sports.

Chesters saw off Portugal's Ricardo Gouveia 4&2, while Ryder Cup hero Jamie Donaldson - who secured the winning point at Gleneagles in 2014 - birdied his last four holes to beat American Paul Peterson 2&1.
