Share

Chasing Paisley and Grace on Sunday will be a three-man group at 12-under-par, three off the pace.

Retief Goosen, a two-time US Open victor, faltered at the last on Friday with a double-bogey six and lost further ground on the field with a one-over 73 to finish at seven under heading into the final round, while Ernie Els carded a two-under 70 to sit 10 shots off the lead at five under. "Obviously, I have never been in this position before, so tomorrow, I'm just going to go and play and do my best".

Chris Paisley and Adrien Saddier opened up a big lead after two rounds of the South African Open on Friday as they moved to 13 under par and four shots clear of their nearest challengers.

In sixth place and four off the lead is Darren Fichardt, who shot up the leaderboard on Saturday thanks to a thrilling eight-under-par 64 that included nine birdies and one bogey.

Saddier matched the course record with seven birdies and an eagle. The 31-year-old Englishman, seeking his first European Tour title, proved a master at reaching greens in regulation during the penultimate round at Glendower Golf Club.

According to the police report, Man's family did not have any contact with her following her second disappearance on October 10. Man was a psychology major that had been enrolled for the Fall 2017 semester but had not yet registered for Spring classes.

"The finish was awesome", the Frenchman said. "I just stayed patient after that first hole", he said. I was quite aggressive with the three-wood and I managed to knock it about 25 feet and managed to roll in the putt.

South African Grace secured five birdies during the second nine to post a 66 and surge back into contention after being the first-round co-leader.

"I'm sure the crowd is going to be on his side", Paisley said. And did you know that this tournament is the second oldest Open championship in the world, having first been formally played in 1903?

Defending champion Graeme Storm of England, who pipped golf superstar Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland in a play-off past year to win the second oldest national championship after the British Open, carded a 75.

Ernie Els, a five-time victor of the South African Open, made the cut after a 70 moved him to 3 under.
