Louis Oosthuizen will take a three-shot lead into the final round of the SA Open at Randpark on Sunday.
The 2010 Open champion is chasing a first national open title and will rest easy on Saturday night after recording one of the best rounds of the day in uncharacteristic windy conditions on Saturday. Oosthuizen went round the Firethorn course in 67 blows, which included six birdies and two bogeys, to be at 14-under-par and in pole position for the final round.
Oosthuizen said he felt good about his game ahead of Sunday’s final round. “I had a lot of par saves today and putted well, something I’ve been doing well for some time now.
“The shots into the wind were easier to control than the ones that were downhill ... I don’t know what the weather’s going to be like on Sunday, but I just have to go out there and do what I did today.”
Three players are three shots off the pace at 11-under-par – England’s Matt Wallace (68), Zambia’s Madalitso Muthiya (71) and South African Charl Schwartzel (72).
