Scotland’s Craig Lee and England’s David Horsey are part of a 6-way match for the lead after the 3rd round of Tshwane Open in South Africa. Craig carded a 4-under-par sixty six, the joint lowest round of the day, to set the clubhouse aim on 9 under par and searched on as none of the later beginners were able to overhaul him at the Pretoria Country Club.
David held the lead after 3 birdies as well as 1 bogey in his first twelve holes, but bogeyed the seventeenth to card a second consecutive sixty nine, while overnight topper Adrian Otaegui scrambled to a Seventy two.
Africa Open winner Trevor Fisher Junior, last week, recovered from 4 bogeys in his first 7 holes to register a sixty nine and was joined in the lead by fellow South Africans George Coetzee and Wallie Coetsee. Coetzee is a member of the club and he won his 1st junior contest here aged ten.
Adrian, who is a protege of ex Masters champ and Ryder Cup 2012 captain Jose Maria Olazabal, was 2 shots clear after a 2nd round of sixty two but dropped his 1st shot on the front 9 all week when he bogeyed the 3rd.
The twenty two year old replied with birdies from a close range on the 6th and 8th looked in spot to pick up another shot on the par-Five 9th when his 2nd shot bounded through the green, only to duff 2 chips as well as eventually card a bogey 6.
