Branden Grace slides into Nedbank title with 66

Fleetwood was playing alongside Noren and Rafa Cabrera Bello

Offaly's Shane Lowry remains one under par at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa after an underwhelming third round on Saturday morning.

He has amassed 4,235,987 points in his 22 appearances, whilst Justin Rose has 3,979,250 from just 11 appearances, after his recent back-to-back wins in Turkey and China. That he ended up doing so comfortably spoke volumes for his performance.

Grace, who announced himself on the world scene with four European Tour titles in 2012, started the day three behind Glaswegian Jamieson and two adrift of Dubuisson.

Day two at the challenging Gary Player Country Club provided an even sterner test, with the players forced to overcome strong winds and a two-hour storm delay.

Branden Grace carded a blemish-free 66 to claim his eighth European Tour title with victory on home soil at the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

"This is Africa's Major, it's a special place with a lot of history".

The 29-year-old also revealed that he found out on Wednesday he is having a baby boy.

"I knew I had to stay patient and take the chances when they came my way, but the key one was 16". "I think one-under is still a good score here", he said.

In fact, Jamieson has contested 141 Tour events since his one and only victory in his very first event of the 2013 schedule and also in South Africa. "I'm sure I'll look back and take great pride in this", he said. "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. Getting into Dubai was the goal coming here.

Li Haotong fired a round-of-the-day 64 to grab fourth spot ahead of Martin Kaymer, with Lee Westwood and Matt Fitzpatrick posting matching 69s to finish tied-sixth and tied-eighth respectively. He finished third here previous year, and enjoys the challenge of the Gary Player Country Club course. That put Fleetwood, who struggled on the first two days, into a tie for seventh at 2 under, six behind leader Jamieson.

In 63rd on the money list, Warren missed out on the final event of the season - Ian Poulter got in as last man - after finishing joint 66th, just ahead of Gallacher in 60th.
