SUN CITY, South Africa (AP) — Christiaan Bezuidenhout moved five shots clear at the South African Open on Saturday and well on course for a second straight win on the European Tour.
The South African carded a 5-under 67 in the third round — his third straight 67 at this tournament — to move to 15 under overall and comfortably clear of Jamie Donaldson (72) and Dylan Frittelli (70).
Bezuidenhout and Donaldson began the day tied for the lead at Gary Player Country Club in Sun City.
It all changed around the turn when Bezuidenhout made birdies at Nos. 6 and 7 and Donaldson made bogeys at Nos. 8, 10 and 11.
