Jamie carded a -5 under par 67 in round three of the Nedbank Golf Challenge to lead the tournament at -16 under par, a three shot advantage going into the final round. It would have been a shot more had he not bogeyed the 17th hole, he said he was between clubs;

“I was in between clubs and it put me in trouble but in the end I came out with a good five. I’m still in a strong position and I’ve got to go out there tomorrow and play really good golf.  It’s a tough field, a lead of three doesn’t mean much among these guys.”

Thomas Björn and Ryan Moore are tied in second place at -13 under par, Thomas thinks he still has a chance tomorrow in the final round, if he can go low;

“I got off to a good start and played solid golf. That’s what you need to do on this course. If I can shoot 66 or 67 tomorrow, I’ll give myself a chance. But you have to play sensible golf, not try and chase down the leader.”

Ryan, a recent winner on the US PGA Tour, carded a -3 under par 33 front nine, before picking up two further shots on the back to complete a -5 under par 67 third round.

Five shots off the lead at -11 under par for the tournament are Thongchai Jaidee, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson.

Henrik will be ruing his compounded error, twice finding the water en route to a double bogey seven at the par four ninth hole.

Sergio produced one of the shots of the day, to chip in for an Eagle 3 at the par five 14th hole, and followed that with birdies at 16 and 17. While Thongchai went bogey free in his round of -6 under par 66.

Westwood wins Nedbank Challenge

Lee Westwood won the nedbank challenge in South Africa at the Gary Player Country Club, after a last very conservative round. There was no repeat of yesterdays magical golf as Lee steadily plotted his way around the tough set up of the course. The following pack, including world number one Luke Donald could not catch him. Lee’s third round 62 gave him enough of a cushion to be able to cruise to the finish. He told the presentation audience,

‘I’ve been coming here a long time, this is the ninth time, and it’s special every time I come.

‘I love playing this course and yesterday was probably the best round I’ve ever played. It set me up to play conservatively today. It’s very satisfying

‘So to get invited back here and win back-to-back titles is a bit special.

‘Yesterday was very special. I drove well and made a few putts, which you’ve got to do round any course when you make 10 under.’
