SUN CITY - South Africa’s Branden Grace was three shots off the lead after the third round of the 2017 Nedbank Golf Challenge here, but remains hopeful of a good showing on Sunday as he looks to end a 10-year title drought for South Africa.
Grace made six birdies and also bogeyed the fifth and 18th holes for a 68 to be three shots behind leader Scott Jamieson of Scotland going into Sunday’s final round.
Jamieson, who has had his name among the leaders since the first day on Thursday, shot a blemish-free 67 to be on eight-under par after three rounds.
France’s Victor Dubuisson, who led overnight, is one shot back on seven-under after posting a 71.
Former champion Martin Kaymer is also at five-under alongside Grace after a good round of 69 that included five birdies and two bogeys. The round of the day however belonged to Italy’s Francesco Molinari, who shot a tournament best 65, that included seven birdies to be five off the lead.
