VIC­TO­RIA FALLS: Af­ter com­bin­ing for a third round 216, the South African team leads Zim­babwe in the third round of this year’s All Africa Golf Team Cham­pi­onships by 22 strokes on a team score of 636.

For a sec­ond day run­ning, Clay­ton Mans­field an­chored the team at Ele­phant Hills Golf Club with a one-un­der-par 71. Gar­rick Higgo carded 72 and Mal­colm Mitchell posted a 73.

“Now I am ex­cited at the prospect of chas­ing Mal­colm for the In­di­vid­ual Hon­ours in the fi­nal round on Fri­day.”

Mitchell tops the In­di­vid­ual Com­pe­ti­tion leader­board on eight-un­der-par 208 and he had an overnight five-shot lead over Issa Abu Al Ela from Egypt and Zim­bab­wean David Amm.

Higgo sits in fourth at one over and Clay­ton Mans­field climbed to a tie for fifth at three over. The fourth mem­ber of the team, Matt Saulez, re­turned a non-count­ing 76 to tie for 10th.

SA Golf As­so­ci­a­tion vice-pres­i­dent Naadir Agher­dien said the quar­tet have been su­perb. “All four of these boys per­son­ify the adage that hard work pays off and their dis­ci­pline on and off the course is un­ri­valled,” he said. – Lali Stander
