Scott Jamieson on brink of career-changing win at Sun City

Scott Jamieson on brink of career-changing win at Sun City

Sun City - Scotland's Scott Jamieson produced only the second bogey-free round of the day on Saturday to move one shot clear of the field heading into the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City. "It's always good to be here, I love this course and I know what to do when you're not feeling good", Fichardt said.

Englishman Tommy Fleetwood would take the Race to Dubai title with a win on Sunday, but he was six shots off the lead after a third-round 67.

"It's exciting", Jamieson told the European Tour's official website.

The duo of South Africa's Branden Grace (68) and Germany's double Major-winning Martin Kaymer (69) share third at five-under par.

"I am mentally prepared for tomorrow, big time".

"The putter was just a little hotter and I got rid of those three-putts I had early in the round yesterday". "I'll be well aware of that tomorrow".

Day two at the challenging Gary Player Country Club provided an even sterner test, with the players forced to overcome strong winds and a two-hour storm delay.


As his nearest challenger, Dubuisson will also like his chances.

"I've played plenty of golf here and won three tournaments here, so it's not the course that I have to prepare for".

"I missed some good opportunities, but the problem is I felt like all day I had tricky, downhill putts, and I couldn't really go for it because I didn't want to". I think it's because I've played the course very conservatively.

A bogey at the par-three 11th was no great drama, but after racking up a triple-bogey eight at the par-five 14th and then following a birdie two at the 16th with a closing bogey, Lowry must dismiss any gathering demons if he's to contend for a win that could transform his season.

"I'm a grinder and Friday's round was certainly not the best, especially that front nine", he said.

Last year, Sweden's Alex Noren came from a similar shot deficit to win "Africa's Major" and Fleetwood will need to do the same. "Hopefully I can pull off a Noren on Sunday", Grace joked about last year's victor Alex Noren, who turned around a six-shot deficit on the Sunday to win by six.
