Branden Grace slides into Nedbank title with 66

Bernd Wiesberger holds a one-shot lead

He made five birdies in another steady round of golf which has left him in pole position to win "Africa's Major" on Sunday.

"I've got to see if I can step up to the challenge".

Only two other South Africans finished under-par, Louis Oosthuizen and Darren Fichardt (-1 for tied-22nd), and the above quartet will be best-placed to become the first local victor of "Africa's Major" since Trevor Immelman in 2007.

The 29-year-old shot a stunning six-under 66 for a score of 11-under par to win by a stroke for his first European Tour title this year and eighth on tour since 2012.

It's an approach that also suits Grace.

"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". That was the last of eight birdies on the day for the Austrian.

"I knew I had to stay patient and take the chances when they came my way, but the key one was 16".

He said: "I was much better on the greens today than I had been the first couple days, so that was nice".

Israel shoots down Syrian drone approaching Golan Heights
An Israeli Patriot missile intercepted a drone from Syria that approached the Jewish state's disputed border with Syria near the Golan Heights on Saturday.

"Today was also not great on the front, so I was happy to be under par (one-under 35) at the turn".

Scott Jamieson said a win on Sunday would be the highlight of his career to date.

Having once again come out on top of another star-studded field, Grace will hope for more good things at the tour finale in Dubai later this week, and in the Majors next year.

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.

Italian Francesco Molinari signed for a 65 and the lowest round of the week to move to three under par alongside South African Haydn Porteous.

Sadly, the rest of the South African challenge faded on the final day, with lucky last-in-man Darren Fichardt finishing strongest of the local contingent.

He was three under at the seventh when he secured another birdie but a double-bogey on the very next hole cancelled out all of his good early work.

Jamieson, who opened with a 68 and made a solid 73 in tough conditions on Friday, was one of only a handful of players to not drop a shot to par on Saturday.
