Paisley and Saddier hold big lead at South African Open

14 Enero, 2018, 02:02 | Author: Thomas Hicks
  • Branden Grace of the South Africa plays a shot on the first fairway during the third round of the 2017 CIMB Classic golf tournament in Kuala Lumpur

The South African, the Nedbank Golf challenge victor a year ago, recorded six birdies after the turn following a front nine which saw Grace mix two birdies with one bogey.

English duo Andy Sullivan and Matt Wallace carded three-under 69s to move to five under for the championship while former Ryder Cup victor Jamie Donaldson, who carded the first ace of 2018, is a further two shots back after a one-under 71 which saw the Welshman mix five birdies with four bogeys.

Chris Paisley of England got down in two from off the green at the last hole on Saturday to cling to a one-shot lead over local Branden Grace after three rounds of the South African Open. I was also four or five behind going into the last day at Nedbank so i thought if I could get the margin pretty small I could still have a chance. "I'm just really excited about it". "I just stayed patient after that first hole".

"I got frustrated out there", admitted Grace about his slow start.

Paisley, who shared a four-shot overnight lead with Adrien Saddier of France, carded a two-under 70 over the 6,942-metre/7.594-yard layout 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) east of Johannesburg. "It's been a fun journey, and with my son turning one on Wednesday, I'm just enjoying life and golf is no longer number one", Blaauw said. "It feels good. I don't want to get ahead of myself, just want to do my thing, but this is great for the confidence".

Five-time European Tour victor Darren Fichardt of South Africa is alone in sixth on 205 after a 64, the lowest score of the day, and bettered only by Saddier this week. "I made a par on two which feels like a bogey and made a bogey on five which was awful, too".

Blaauw returned a 66, Koepka a 68 and Saddier, who fired a course-record 63 in the second round, struggled on the greens Saturday and needed 37 putts in a round of 73. Sitting in your hotel room, you just think "Man, this is hard work", but you grow as a golfer because you have to deal with a lot of bad moments, which you have to take on the chin and move on.

"I've been in this situation a couple of times and I can't say I've dealt with it too well".
