A little fist-pump from Wallie Coetsee on Saturday as he put his six-footer for birdie into the hole showed just how pleased he was to open up a two-stroke lead after the third round of the Joburg Open. He rode a roller-coaster of bogeys and birdies – three bogeys were eventually cancelled out by five birdies – to card a two-under-par 70 and a lead which will be worth its weight in gold going into the final round.
Jaco van Zyl will be angling for a European Tour breakthrough in the 2015 Africa Open next week after making a major statement in George on Sunday. After 10 months on the bench, Van Zyl intended to take more rust off his second Sunshine Tour start this season in the Dimension Data Pro-Am, however, the Dainfern professional finished just three off the pace in a tie for third after firing rounds of 70, 71, 69 and 71 at Fancourt.
