Jamieson takes one shot lead into Nedbank final round

Jamieson takes one shot lead into Nedbank final round

"The key is to get a good start, get that front nine under control, like I did today, and then push on the back".

With a final round of 66, Grace won "Africa's Major" by a single stroke on 11 under par and ended a win drought of South Africans in this event stretching back to Trevor Immelman's triumph in 2007.

Offaly's Shane Lowry remains one under par at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa after an underwhelming third round on Saturday morning. "That's why I didn't make as many birdies as the day before".

Grace moves to tenth in the Race to Dubai standings with just one event left next week at the DP World Tour Championship. It's a really tough course.

Sunday's final round featured some superb golf, particularly from the last trio out on the course at Gary Player Country Club, along with the impressive Li.

"This is Africa's Major, it's a special place with a lot of history". The Glaswegian had just scraped into the penultimate Rolex Series event of the year and needed a high finish to have any chance of moving on to the final one in Dubai.

"It's a very special week, we found out on Wednesday we're having a boy".

"I said to (caddie) Zack Rashego at the start of the round, I felt if I was able to go bogey-free, I'd be in with a chance".

"I'll take that for sure", said the 33-year-old whose only win on the European Tour came in 2013 at the now-defunct Nelson Mandela Championship at Royal Durban on the east coast. "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.

"Today I was playing, trying to get myself into some kind of contention for the tournament", he said.

Tommy Fleetwood remains on top, with Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia the only men who can overtake him. He finished third here a year ago, and enjoys the challenge of the Gary Player Country Club course. "He missed a 6'0" birdie try to tie the lead at 13, but joined it soon after with a two-putt par breaker at 14 and sneaked clear with a magnificent 35'0" birdie conversion at the par-3 16th, seconds after Jamieson lipped out for a chip-in red number of his own.
